Contemporary Art Puts on a Show

Les Amis de Tourinnes
04/11/2018 from 12:00until 25/11/2018 - 18:00
4 Nov

The 53rd annual « Fêtes de la Saint-Martin » welcome visitors in Tourinnes-la-Grosse (a lovely French-speaking village 30km east of Brussels, Belgium)  from the 4th to the  25th of November.

It is a multi-cultural festival of contemporary art exhibitions, offering an overview of the unusual artists’ route (an essential element in Belgian art), a theatrical performance and concerts.

This unique event, founded in 1965 by Max Van der Linden, a renowned local ceramist, will continue its strong tradition "to share what is beautiful". The 2018 program includes diverse contemporary art exhibitions compiled by two curators on this year’s chosen theme: Enclosure, this horizon forever pursuing us…” Several invited artists will illustrate this idea in their most original and personal skills. 

Trained « ambassadors » will introduce the exhibited works and welcome any visitor who might want to better grasp the artists' techniques, concepts or criteria.

Enjoy a beautiful walk among ancient farms, barns, gardens and charming private properties, meet interesting people and make it an experience to remember. 

During one of the weekends you will also have the opportunity to enjoy the performance of The Caucasian Cray Circle play by Berthold Brecht. This classical parable is revisited by 150 comedians, musicians and singers and is not to be missed!

Entrance badge to all the exhibitions €3,00 -  Catalogue with a detailed map: €8,00.

Exhibitions are open on Saturday between 2 and 6pm and on Sundays between 12 to 6pm.
