This summer new works by a few promising names from the Belgian art scene will be on display in the Centre for Fine Arts. Of the 250 dossiers submitted an international jury selected ten artists, all of whom work in Belgium and are under 35 years of age. In September the jury met to reveal, in association with the non-profit organisation Young Belgian Art, the winners of the Young Belgian Art Prize. Since 1950 this is the very highest distinction for young artistic talent in Belgium. The finalists are in competion for three prizes. During the exhibition you can vote for your favourite artist via www.youngbelgianartprize.be – this will increase his/her chances of winning the ING People’s Choice Award.
