About our partners

For TRIBRU24, Bruges Triennial has collaborated with four local cultural partners. Together, they are developing a city-wide programme with Spaces of Possibility as the common thread.

We are delighted to present their programme:

Cultuurcentrum Brugge
The memory as a building

In the Burghers’ Lodge, Cultuurcentrum Brugge brings together six artists with Bruges roots for The memory as a building. Pierre Goetinck, Lisa Ijeoma, Joke Raes, Jasper Rigole, Ria Verhaeghe and Willy Vynck set to work in the historic rooms and present new work in which concepts such as collecting, archiving and conservation are linked to art historical themes, both personal and/or social. Together they search for ‘the memory’ of the Burghers’ Lodge, a wanderspace that has evolved from a commercial site to an Academy, and from State Archives to temporary exhibition space.

Cultuurcentrum Brugge makes stimulating artistic choices with a focus on spreading (inter)national productions. The Cultuurcentrum Brugge is an incubator for young and local talent and presents this creative potential in innovative projects, exhibitions and refreshing festivals.

De Republiek
We wake the city

A city can only truly come to life when there is flexibility. With We wake the city, De Republiek and Architectuuratelier Dertien12 seek out locations that are not governed by rules. By means of minimal injections, they give these places a temporary use, a generous illustration of potential. They unlock surprising places in the city, suggest fresh interpretations, and stir the imagination with performances, installations, walks, and more.

The Republic is a place of encounter and a community of city-makers in Bruges. With a mix of doers, thinkers, makers and entrepreneurs, they are for everyone living and working in our city. They revolt in a positive way from a historic building with unique Grand Café in the heart of the city.

Het Entrepot
At Rise Of Curtain by Brecht Vanhoutte

With At Rise Of Curtain, the Bruges video artist Brecht Vanhoutte presents a versatile project for Het Entrepot that interweaves various art forms, including theatre, dance, performance, audio-visual and visual art. From a place in transformation, the project explores themes such as creativity, identity and mental health, whilst also investigating the impact of audience engagement and the blurring of reality and fiction. What makes this project unique is its translation of a narrative about diverse art media, comprised of four routes.

The Entrepot is a creative haven for young people in Bruges. It encourages, facilitates and highlights various forms of youth creativity.

Musea Brugge
Rebel Garden

With Rebel Garden, Musea Brugge presents an exhibition around today’s most pressing topic: climate change. What is our impact on nature, and how does this affect the environment? Featuring both historic and contemporary artworks, the exhibition takes a close look at the tumultuous relationship between humans and nature and places a finger on the painful wound that is the climate crisis. On show from the permanent collection are works by Roger Raveel, Emile Claus and Otobong Nkanga, amongst others, but also expect top works by contemporary artists such as Guillaume Bijl, Christine Ödlund, Giuseppe Penone, Rose Wylie and Per Kristian Nygård.

Musea Brugge connects art, culture, heritage and people. And all at 13 unique sites within the walls of the city. Connect to contemporary and classical visual art, historic buildings, the best views and exclusive exhibitions.

Triennial Beaufort 2024

We also joined forces with a cultural player in Zeebrugge, where a co-production with Triennial Beaufort 2024 will broaden our programme beyond the boundaries of the historic centre of Bruges.

Triennial Beaufort is a triennial for contemporary art that has been taking place since 2003 along the sea walls, beaches and dunes of the Belgian coast.
