Have you always dreamed of exhibiting in a museum but never had the opportunity? Are you aged between 12 and 100, and would you like to take part in a group exhibition? Are you someone with a special talent for the visual arts and, for whatever reason, find it difficult to find your way to the art academies or to the professional circuit?

If so, send photos of three artworks - paintings, drawings or graphic work - along with dimensions, to belgicart@bozar.be by 30 April 2020 (new deadline*). Attach a brief note (up to 200 words) explaining why you’d like to take part in the project.

The selected works will be exhibited in the Centre for Fine Arts in September 2020. Curator Sam Dillemans will make an initial selection for the group exhibition, assisted by a jury. During the second phase, BOZAR will offer 15 participants workshops with Sam Dillemans (dates to be confirmed). 

BOZAR and Sam Dillemans want to give unknown artists and beginners some exposure and a little extra support; talent that reflects the diversity of our country. The step up to exhibiting is a major one for many artists. We want to give new stories a chance and encourage interaction between artists. In the case of this project we are relying on the painter’s eye and the guidance of Sam Dillemans, and focusing on painting and related disciplines. 

Belgicart is part of Next Generation, Please!, a project of BOZAR that aims to create civic participation through artistic creation.


*Due to the closing of the Centre For Fine Arts as a result of the containment measures, we have decided to extend the call until April 30 (instead of April 6). The dates of the workshops with Sam Dillemans will be confirmed depending on the reopening of BOZAR.
