This fall, BNP Paribas Fortis is going forward with its existing partnership with the three most prominent Belgian contemporary art museums: the Dhondt-Dhaenens Museum in Deurle; Wiels – the Centre for Contemporary Art in Brussels; and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACs) at Hornu.
This collaboration will continue to provide Belgium’s contemporary art scene with the support it deserves. The initiative is also meant to encourage the bank’s clients and employees to explore the lively world of contemporary art.
The exhibitions that will benefit from this ongoing support are:
WIELS, Centre for Contemporary Art from 22 September 2012 to 6 January 2013
Exhibition by Belgian conceptual artist Joëlle Tuerlinckx: ‘WOR(LD)K IN PROGRESS?’
