Gala dinner and benefit auction 2023

Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is delighted to invite you to its annual gala dinner and benefit auction on Thursday 31 August.

Since 2007, our annual gala and benefit auction has come to be a highlight of the Belgian art calendar. It is thanks to the generous support of artists, galleries, partners and patrons that MDD is able to realise its ambitious programme.

This evening promises to be full of inspiring encounters and remarkable works of art in the benefit auction led by Christie’s.

This year, artist Yutaka Sone (1965, Shizuoka, Japan) will create an unforgettable artistic experience in collaboration with Michelin star chef Matthieu Beudaert.
