Bruges Triennial: Liquid City
Following the Triennials held between 1960 and 1970, Bruges now brings a brand-new Triennial for Contemporary Art: Liquid City
From 5 May to 16 September, impressive constructions put together by contemporary artists and architects will adorn the historic centre of the city of Bruges. An art trail will guide visitors through the many different aspects of the Liquid City. Fifteen art works, installations and meeting places will be offering plenty of opportunity for amazement and dialogue. En route, you may gaze at a gigantic sculpture in the shape of a blue whale made entirely from waste materials, or stand in awe of a bridge created out of profiles and tarpaulins. Bruges Triennial wants to challenge people not only to look at art, but to experience it and form part of the creative process.
Liquid City refers to a society that is subject to constant change and it is a metaphor for the waterways of Bruges. Fancy experiencing art outdoors? Then have a look at the website for some practical information.
