Billboard Series 

 

Billboard Series is a long-term art in public space project in Ghent, Belgium. Initiated by artlead in 2015, Billboard Series is a sequence of site-specific art commissions, occupying 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 urban landscape.

 

The location of the billboard is part of the former industrial port of Ghent. This area is currently a section of the inner city ring, and is in full development to be reconverted into one of Ghent’s new quarters by Office for Metropolitan Architecture.

 

With each billboard, artlead produces an exclusive support edition to help finance the production and artist fee of the next Billboard Series.
