Mind the Artist

Mind the Artist

The artists of Bruges have been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis, so Musea Brugge has launched a new series of festivals, Mind the Artist, to give them a forum for just over a year. Until the beginning of 2022, seven artists will be given a unique opportunity to develop a project with a link to the museum collection – an inspiring dialogue between contemporary and old(er) art.

Take a look at the expo video of Strook.
