Contemporary Belgian artists continue to be critical and engaged with issues linked to the politics, the environnement and to societal questions.
The scarcity of international exhibitions by Belgian artists in no way reflects reality. Belgian’s thriving art world is growing fast—and the strength of Belgian art will only grow.
Streamlining this rigorous and expanding Belgian contemporary art world into a list of 5 artists is a challenge. This is a mere selection focused on a range of established and emerging artists, the majority of whom are based in Belgium. Working across performance, installation, photography, painting, sculpture, fashion, and ceramics, each artist has a distinctive aesthetic vocabulary, which affirms their place in the global canon of contemporary art.
