thomas hirschhorn in 'invitation to travel' at central for contemporary art, brussels

24 April 2015
The CENTRALE for contemporary art presents the exhibition ‘Invitation au voyage', bringing together works of the 14 winners of the Prix Marcel Duchamp, including Thomas Hirschhorn, on the 15th anniversary of this prestigious competition founded by ADIAF. This exhibition, which takes its title from a poem by Charles Baudelaire, is akin to an "invitation to a voyage": a voyage through space, but also into memory, in places full of history and the journey within.

"Our time encourages artists to look at the world and travel around it: constantly on the move, they retrace the contemporary landscape. Some artists revisit the history of art, others react to political and social changes. In any case, rare are those who seem indifferent to our daily lives, that of information relayed by internet, accelerated transmission modes, confusion of categories, the proliferation of images." underlines the Curator Alfred Pacquement.

The exhibition runs from 24 April to 30 August 2015.
