Bonnefantenmuseum Ceramix & Toon Teeken expositions
Art and ceramics from Rodin to Schütte in the Bonnefantenmuseum.

Under the title CERAMIX, the Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht – NL), Cité de la céramique (Sèvres – F) and la Maison Rouge (Paris – F) are presenting a mega exhibition about the use of ceramics by artists of the 20th and 21st century.
