public art experience


contracting authority

The Public Art project is initiated by Fonds Belval in its role of a public contracting authority required by law to invest in artistic creation. Implementing a project of this nature, which has the ambition to unfold over several years and eventually become an institution in its own right, demands sustained and competent management. This calls for a permanent body with adequate levels of expertise. For this permanent body to succeed it must be intellectually autonomous as well ideologically and financially independent, while taking full responsibility for the obligations deriving from this freedom. Based on this assessment Fonds Belval has set up the Artistic Advisory Board entrusted with supervising the public art project and endowed with the necessary funding.
