Hogan Lovells Luxembourg teams up with Art2Cure, again!

Just like Hogan Lovells Luxembourg, Art2Cure is turning 10 in 2023. Since its launch, the Luxembourg non-profit organisation, has been organising art exhibitions and raised over € 200,000 to support various causes such as biomedical research in the field of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Art2Cure is a one-of-a-kind association as they raise funds but also showcase artists work (half of the turnover goes to the cause, and half to the artists).

A long standing support

For 5 years, Hogan Lovells Luxembourg has been supporting Art2Cure’s incredible work. For instance, in 2018, we sponsored their one and only exhibition abroad, in the presence of T.RR.HH. Crown Prince Guillaume and Crown Princess Stéphanie of Luxembourg, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, consul general of Luxembourg in New York Hon. Jeanne Crauser, ambassador and permanent representative of Luxembourg to the UN H.E. Christian Frédéric Braun, as well as professors from Luxembourg and Columbia Universities (more details here). Ten Luxembourgish and New York artists exhibited at the Ronald Feldman Gallery in Soho, New York. The proceeds went to a research partnership on Parkinson’s disease between the University of Luxembourg, and Columbia University in NYC.

What’s up in 2023?

The 2023 festivities were kicked off by a Collectors’ Dinner as part of its new exhibition at the BIL (Banque à Luxembourg) on 7 June, where we attended with clients and friends, and in the presence of Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel.

This exhibition (officially opening on 17 June, for the whole summer), entitled Time Reflections, showcases the works of 5 Luxembourgish and 5 French artists (including Stick, Camille Brès, Valentine Esteve, and Florent Groc), in collaboration with several French galleries, and will mark the beginning of a future international research partnership between France and Luxembourg for a cure for Alzheimer's disease. A second exhibition, entitled Back to the roots, will open on 1 July at Konscht Hal in Esch-sur-Alzette with 22 artists.


This year, the proceeds of the sales will go towards the Alzheimer’s Research Fund at the University of Luxembourg’s research center LCSB (Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine) .

Prof. Rejko Krüger, head of the Translational Neuroscience group at the LCSB and director of Transversal Translational Medicine at the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), and Dr Ibrahim Boussaad, post-doctoral researcher at the LCSB, received the 2022 FNR Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement.

This centre was recently in the news thanks to a new publication in collaboration with Japanese researchers, where they described a way to detect the Parkinson disease via to a blood testing (see more details here).

We also supported the LCSB separate Mind the brain initiative in 2019 contributing up to €10,500.

Professor Michael Heneka, one of Europe's most eminent researchers on Alzheimer's disease, joined the University of Luxembourg last year to become the new Director of the LCSB. Therefore, Luxembourg has become a serious player in the global race to find new treatments and, hopefully, a cure for Alzheimer's disease. For its 10th edition, Art2Cure wishes to support by donating 50% of the proceeds from this year's art sale to the Alzheimer's Disease Research Fund at the University of Luxembourg.
