Expo

07.09 — 28.10

A yearly exhibition of in-situ visual art in the public space surrounding the Horst Castle. The objective is to produce profound and bespoke art that establishes a dialogue with its context: the historic framework of the castle, its green rural setting and the presence of the festival itself. Expect a series of temporary and permanent interventions that highlight existing elements and reframe the current castle's surroundings.

Arts curated by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh.
