Billboard series

Billboard Series is a long-term art in public space project at Dok Noord, Ghent. Part of the former industrial port, this area is currently a section of the inner city ring, and is in full development to be reconverted into one of Ghent’s new quarters. Billboard Series is a sequence of site-specific art commissions, occupying a 50 square meters billboard on the South façade of 019.

Each year, four artists are invited to create a work that considers the status of the image and fosters a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighbourhood and urban landscape. The presentation of each new Billboard will be accompanied by an evening curated by the artist, filled with lectures, performances, film or music.
