Triennial Bruges 2021
May to September 2021
Every three years the Bruges Triennial brings contemporary art and architecture to the historic city centre of Bruges: a unique setting and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 2015 it has built further on the series of triennials put together in 1968, 1971 and 1974 that brought visual arts into the public domain. In each edition, the artistic team invites regional and international artists and architects to submit new temporary installations. Some dozen of these works of art and meeting places always engage in an active dialogue with their surroundings: alongside waterways, in cobbled streets, in peaceful places of worship or on vacant lots. For visitors, it will be a summer-long exploration, following a unique and inviting trail with a social aspect.
