Jean-Christophe Hubert graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Liège, with a degree in the History of Modern Art. He began his career in 1996 as a member of the non-profit organisation Art&Fact, and as a teacher at the Centre de Formation permanente des Classes moyennes et des PME Liège-Huy-Waremme. As a curator or advisor, he participated in exhibitions at the Musée du Chapitre de Soignies, the Abbaye du Val-Dieu, the Château d'Aigremont and the Musée d'Art Moderne de Liège for the Ministère du Patrimoine de la Région wallonne. In 2000, he became curator of the Museum of Art and History of the Val-Dieu Abbey. Within this magnificent building, which originated in the 13th century, he opened an exhibition devoted to the engraved work of Rembrandt and established a collaboration with the Rembrandt House in Amsterdam.
As a doctoral student at the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique at the University of Liège, he devoted himself to research, before definitively turning to curating exhibitions. He developed this orientation within the non-profit organisation Collections et Patrimoines. As artistic director, he led exhibitions such as Pierre-Paul Rubens in Eupen, Leonardo da Vinci in Brussels and Sos Planet in Liège. Curator of the Museum of Letters and Manuscripts until 2012, he participated in the development of this Brussels cultural centre and saw the opening of seven prestigious exhibitions, including Georges Simenon, Brussels Capital of the Arts, and The Surrealist Spark. Nearly twenty conferences have attracted a large audience and prestigious speakers such as Jacques Bredael, Hervé Hasquin, Marc Eyskens and Patrick Weber. He is currently developing projects in remarkable sites such as the Oud-Sint-Jan site in Bruges, the Château de Waroux in Ans, the Malmundarium in Malmedy or the Pouhon Pierre le Grand in Spa, and specialises in curating and scenography for museums and exhibitions.
