Current research in late medieval sculpture is the theme of the second edition of the annual study day which M organizes around medieval sculpture. The focus was on European sculpture from the 12th to the 16th century.

On the occasion of this conference M revealed the official name of its brand new website and network of medieval sculpture. The program also included a free visit to the exhibition 'Images from Bruges. That exhibition presents a selection of sculptures from the Gruuthuse Museum Bruges and the extensive M Collection.
