26 June to 24 October 2021
Kortrijk’s Triennial will take place from 26th June to 24th October 2021. Entitled ‘Paradise’ , its name is inspired by individual interpretations of the utopian dream of paradise and invites artists to see and interpret how society can be improved for everyone. Paradise Kortrijk will invite a number of national and international contemporary artists to participate and reflect on modern questions by installing new and existing artworks in its dynamic city.
Located along the River Leie in West Flanders, Kortrijk prides itself on a rich heritage symbolised by its Broel Towers, its own Belfry and a 13th century UNESCO World Heritage Béguinage. Proud of a creative soul, it is renowned for a strong reputation in craftsmanship, quality design and entrepreneurship and was awarded with a UNESCO Creative Cities Network membership.
The festival is free to visit and aims to attract a wide audience including families and children. It is organised by the City of Kortrijk, Belgium and Be-Part. Its curators are Hilde Teerlinck and Patrick Ronse.
