offline projects

 

artlead.net is not just an online platform. Our mission to make art accessible to everyone doesn't stop at a collaborative online marketplace or an online journal. We also set up offline projects to introduce people to art - including  a series of art in public space projects and exhibitions in our very own artlead SALON. We also present our partner's editions in pop-up spaces, and we participate in art fairs to show as many people as possible that art by institutionally supported artists doesn't necessarily have to be expensive.

 

 

A Temporary Monument for Brussels

 

A Temporary Monument for Brussels is a contemporary reflection on the historical concept of a monument. It functions as present-day answer to Jacques Moeschal's beautiful, monumental sculpture Signal from Zellik, which embodies the blind optimism proper to the post-war climate - in which cars and concrete were the determining factors for what everybody agreed was to be a brighter future. Signal from Zellik eminently symbolizes a specific worldview of urban development from the sixties and seventies of the past century. Today however, we agree that a city is not defined by concrete and cars, but by the people who live there, who temporarily come together and from their combined characteristics form the heart and soul of a city. From this perspective, it seems only logical that a contemporary monument for the city also has a temporary character. Just like the changing dynamics of its city, A Temporary Monument for Brussels changes throughout its existence – as the large-scale banners are re-imaged by a different artist based in Brussels.

Billboard Series

 

Billboard Series is a on-going long-term art in public space project in Ghent, Belgium. We initiated Billboard Series in 2015 as a sequence of site-specific art commissions, occupying a billboard of 50 square meter on the South façade of a former welding factory. Each year, four artists are invited to create a work that considers the status of the image and fosters a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighbourhood and changing urban landscape.
