This year our international trip will focus on Flanders and Belgium. The Contemporary Art Society has partnered with the Flemish Government with the ambition to establish closer links between the two countries. It will offer opportunities to develop new networks and explore different organisational structures. During our three-day trip to Flanders, we will visit important private and public collections and institutions, meeting with directors, curators, artists and other influential agents within the visual arts ecology of the region. These will include WIELS, Fondation Boghossian’s Villa Empain, BOZAR, z33 and the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent. We shall also visit artists Berlinde De Bruyckere, Laure Prouvost and the estate of Philippe Vandenberg.
20 places are available on this fully funded research trip. To request a place, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 March including information about your interest in establishing links with Belgium.
