In the 19th century, artists exhibited their new works during the triennial Ghent "Salons”, a combination of art gallery, competition and exhibition. The youth crew of MSK, “Schoonvolk”, revives this tradition with the “Salon des Jeunes”!

They asked young talent to draw inspiration from works exhibited in the MSK and made by old masters like Ensor, Van Rysselberghe or Van Dyck when they were young, inexperienced and still trying to find their own identity.
