‘Art Truc Troc & Design 2015’

16 → 18


An original and unique exhibition/event of contemporary art in Belgium

For this 11th edition, more than 300 artists, from all disciplines mixed together, invite you to come and barter for their works on an area of more than 1,600 m2.

The big innovation this year is that we will welcome the schools of art. An “off exhibition” will allow art school students to present their work without going through the jury. They will be able to express their creativity without restrictions and use the same occasion to present their schools.
After great success with the arrival of design in 2014, Art Truc Troc will this year again welcome a DESIGN section into its exhibition space. This time, we invite you to take part in this exhibition event combining design and visual arts in a very special ambience! In collaboration with MAD BRUSSELS, come and discover this space that will honour emerging and established designers.

As for the Wolubilis Cultural Centre, its contribution consists of highlighting the art of today in its role as organiser of the exhibition for Visual Arts.

It’s a chance for visitors to discover contemporary art, design as well as live performances in a playful atmosphere.
It’s also an opportunity to give a chance to young artists to be exhibited in an exceptional space in the company of other established artists, accepting the principle of barter with enthusiasm.
During the exhibition, the visitor is invited to barter an object, service, material, trip or any other suggestion their imagination can come up with, and which the artist is likely to agree to, for a work of art and its perceived value. So there is no question of money here, only new and unusual exchanges.
After being won over by a work, the visitor proposes their barter and communicates their details on a post-it note placed alongside. The artist on the spot will then have the choice to contact the visitor or not in order to negotiate or confirm the exchange, either at that time or later.
