Gala Dinner and benefit auction 2022

Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is delighted to invite you to its annual gala dinner and benefit auction on Thursday 22 September from 18:00.

Since 2007, the benefit gala and auction have become an unmissable event on the Belgian art calendar, allowing MDD to pursue its ambitious artistic programme.

This year, artist Kris Martin, in collaboration with chef Matthieu Beudaert and high-end jewellery brand Elliot & Ostrich, will provide you with a unique artistic experience. Christie's will supervise the benefit auction, made possible by the generous contributions of (inter)national artists, galleries and collectors.

The proceeds of the evening will support in particular MDD's artists’ residency programme at the Woning Van Wassenhove and the expansion of the museum’s educational mission, an essential pillar for founders Jules and Irma Dhondt-Dhaenens.


  • € 300 per person
  • € 3.000 per table of 10 persons

    If you cannot attend the gala dinner, but still wish to contribute, you can make a donation (tax certificate available for donations of € 40 or more).

Thanks to all the artists for their contribution to the benefit auction

Alma Allen, Noel W. Anderson, Neïl Beloufa, Manon de Boer, Meta Drčar, Michel François, Melissa Gordon, Imi Knoebel, Magali Reus, Denitsa Todorova, Catharina van Eetvelde, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Jonathan Wateridge
