Vincent Meessen & guests

Project outline

The Belgian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale presents the work of Belgian artist Vincent Meessen together with international guest artists. Meessen’s proposal Personne et les autres breaks the tradition of Belgium’s representation in Venice to date, which has mostly featured solo or duo exhibitions of Belgian artists. It challenges the notion of the ‘national representation’ by moving away from the traditional format of a solo show and opening up to include multiple positions and viewpoints.
