Dedicated to contemporary art produced internationally and in Luxembourg, this large-scale exhibition, which started in 2015, is the brainchild of the Agence Luxembourgeoise d'Action Culturelle, the Cercle Artistique de Luxembourg and ArtComptemporain.lu, and is supported by the Ville de Luxembourg, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Economy.
This year, some 80 galleries for established and emerging artists, together with artist collectives will be taking part at the fair's new location at Glacis Square on Fouerplaatz. It will be open to the public on 12 November from 11.00 to 18.00, 13 November from 10.30 to 19.30, and 14 November from 10.30 to 18.00.
From 30 October to 5 December residents in Luxembourg can see a giant and intricate cast iron sculpture (Te Danzante) at the Robert Schuman roundabout, the work of renowned Portuguese artist Vasconcelos. A living piece it will has been planted with jasmine seeds.
Performance projects mostly at the MUDAM and Casino Luxembourg include one entitled Metamorphosis from the ykaskmkmpp artist collective with artists from Luxembourg, Lisbon and Iceland, and the audiovisual project ultra social pop from Filip Markiewicz, which includes film and music linking pop culture to populism. You can get a rubber stamp "tattoo" as part of the Forever Immigrant project to create a community that reflects the permanent uncertainties of immigrants, or hear some rock and metal inspired spontaneous compositions on the electric guitar and drums by PARADICE.
There'll be guided tours of the Family of Man and the exhibition "Stronger than memory, weaker than dewdrops", plus roundtables on how to integrate art in public spaces and the post-Brexit/post-Covid art market.
The fair supports emerging galleries and artists collectives and is a great place to purchase affordable art. Several smaller participating art galleries will continue to hold parallel events and display artworks from a number of countries. You can find out more about Art Week, here.
