TRIBRU24 strengthens ties with triennials


On Friday 12 January 2024, the Bruges Triennial signed a cooperation charter with the triennials of Kortrijk, Beaufort and Dunkirk (FR). The agreement strengthens the ties between the art triennials in Flanders and northern France by creating a structural framework for future collaboration.

The charter signatories – namely the Flemish triennials of Bruges, Beaufort and Kortrijk and the Triennale Art & Industrie in France – have made an annual commitment to share knowledge and information about art in the public space. By sharing experiences and through professional networking, the triennials want to progress the transformation of the sector with respect for people and the environment.

The charter was signed during the two-day symposium in Dunkirk entitled Collective Energy: Commissioned Art and Public Space. It was the closing event of the second edition of the Triennale Art & Industrie, with the theme Chaleur humaine. The programme included contributions from Shendy Gardin and Sevie Tsampalla, curators of Bruges Triennial 2024; curator Els Wuyts of the Beaufort Triennial; and artist Ivan Morison, a participant in the 2024 edition of the Bruges Triennial.
