Call for projects CENTRALE.vitrine

The City of Brussels and CENTRALE support emerging artists and their projects.

In March 2021, CENTRALE launches CENTRALE.vitrine, a new space dedicated to Brussels’ emerging talents on the basis of an open call for projects. Artists living in the capital will respond by proposing an IN SITU project for the vitrine of CENTRALE, taking into account the urban environment, the street (Rue Sainte-Catherine is very busy and soon-to-be pedestrian), the neighborhood, the inhabitants, passers-by, walkers who may or may not be sensitive to contemporary art.

The vitrine is a link between indoors and outdoors, CENTRALE and the public space, art and life.
