For many centuries, market places and squares have played a central role in European society. They have always been important commercial and social meeting places, where traders, artists, troubadours and churchgoers came across each other. Agorafolly allows 27 promising young talents (all aged under 35) to bring 27 squares in the heart of Brussels to life, transforming them into places of encounter with contemporary European art.
Agorafolly will allow 27 young talents, all younger than 35, to bring 27 squares and market places in the heart of Brussels to life, as conformation of this exchange and to create places of encounter with contemporary European art. Agorafolly will take place from 13 October to 9 December 2007. An audio-guide with a navigation system and a catalogue will guide the public through this artistic trail in the Brussels pentagon. Agorafolly Inside The second part of Agorafolly takes place inside the Centrale Electrique, the starting point of the open-air artists’ trail. This new contemporary art centre, opened just two years ago, welcomes the same 27 young artists. In Agorafolly Inside the search for contemporary artistic expression within the European Union takes place in a celebration of diversity in unity and each artist has been asked to contribute a work that particularly expresses the identity of their country. This exhibition includes new and existing works. (Centrale Electrique - from 13th October 2007 to 13th January 2008)
