In the spirit of camaraderie and collective action, Brussels-based galleries (Harlan Levey Projects, Super Dakota, Ballon Rouge, Walburger Wouters, and Stems) present an encounter between a diverse range of contemporary artists.
6 Degrees of separation is the idea that all people are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. The phrase was coined in the early part of the 20th century - a thesis made because of technological advances in communication and travel.
The exhibition explores questions central to contemporary society and civic rights, revealing the threads and links that are created and that connect the core of contemporary art today. For all participating artists it will be their first exhibition in Kortrijk, Belgium.
Ballon Rouge presents works by Carmen Argote, Nokukhanya Langa, and Murat Önen.
