Focus on Visual Arts in Luxembourg
On the occasion of the Luxembourg Art Week (11-14/11), Kultur | lx is organising two days for visual arts professionals in the Greater Region to promote exchanges and to make the Luxembourg art scene, its artists and actors, whether institutional or private, better known.
While the Glacis car park in Limpertsberg was covered with ephemeral pavilions that will host some 80 European galleries participating in the 6th edition of the Luxembourg Art Week, a number of Luxembourg actors of the visual arts scene joined forces to present in this context their vision of what the visual arts in Luxembourg have to offer. From the exhibition Freigeister. Fragments of an Art scene in Luxembourg and beyond at the Mudam, and the young Konschthal in Esch-sur-Alzette, which presents the works of Lisa Kohl, Gregor Schneider, Daniel Reuter or Martine Feipel & Jean Bechameil, From the Casino – Forum d’art contemporain, where the installation Stronger than memory and weaker than dewdrops by Karolina Markiewicz & Pascal Piron is on exhibit, to the many artists who open their studios and organise studio visits, the diversity of the national scene is on display.
Kultur | lx is therefore taking this opportunity to organise, in partnership with Luxembourg Art Week, Mudam Luxembourg and the AAPL – Association des artistes plasticiens du Luxembourg, two focus days on the visual arts which will enable curators and professionals in the sector to deepen their knowledge of the national scene while encouraging encounters and discoveries.
The circulations that Kultur | lx intends to stimulate are understood in the most open sense possible. If it is indeed a question of discovering works, thoughts and aesthetics outside our borders that are developed in connection with the national territory, it is also a question of reciprocal exchanges. This time of meeting often allows us to resume dialogue with our neighbours, to get out, after two difficult years, of individual questioning in order to broaden our horizons once again and to rub shoulders with other ways of thinking and acting that will in turn fertilise local practices.
Come and meet us from 11 to 13 November at our stand at the Luxembourg Art Week! We look forward to welcoming you.
