10 contemporary artists are invited to join in on the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Brussels Palace of Fine Arts.

4 April 1922, Brussels Town Hall: The date when the Centre for Fine Arts (‘Palais des Beaux-Arts’) was officially launched. The judicial basis for the construction and the associated ambition of creating an arts centre had become a reality in the statutes of the future institution.

Bozar, together with curator Wouter Davidts (Ghent University), has invited 10 artists to celebrate this anniversary with work that reflects on what an arts centre such as Bozar can and should be now and into the future.

They focus on the arts centre today, as well as offer glimpses of its long history. Rather than a history of the ‘Palace,’ the exhibition will act as an artistic retelling and a look to the future.

Invited Artists: Lara Almarcegui, BINGO, Jeremiah Day, Sylvie Eyberg, Liam Gillick, Annaïk Lou Pitteloud, Lynn Cassiers, Koen van den Broek, Sammy Baloji, Johan Lagae & Traumnovelle, Auguste Orts (Herman Asselberghs, Sven Augustijnen, Manon de Boer, Anouk De Clercq, Fairuz Ghammam)
