René Magritte passed away 50 years ago, on 15 August 1967. In 2017, major institutions and cultural actors come together to pay tribute to this undeniable art icon.

Numerous activities linked to this Tribute Year Magritte are unveiled – by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, WPG Editions Belgium, Knokke-Heist and the Atomium –  during the press conference held on Wednesday 17 May at 11am at the Magritte Museum.

Within the context of the Magritte year, the major cultural institutions and players developed a common label to ensure a greater visibility of the events organized in homage to René Magritte. All partners of this important action offer a €2 advantage to visitors who participate in this national Magritte track.
