Contour On Tour: video art in the Flemish Parliament.

De Loketten is a monumental space in the House of the Flemish Representatives. In this space, the Flemish Parliament pursues an active exhibition policy in which contemporary art plays a prominent role.

The Flemish Parliament has presented prior exhibitions which focus on specific media, such as 'Design Icons in Flanders' (2003-2004), '6+ Antwerp fashion in the Flemish Parliament' (2007) and 'Screen Worlds: Contemporary photography in the Flemish Parliament' (2008). The current exhibition, 'Contour on Tour', highlights video art in Flanders.

Contour is the co-ordinator of 'Moving Stories', an international co-operation project supported by the European Union (part of the European Cultural Programme 2007-2013). With co-organisers from Italy, Austria, Germany, France and Poland, Contour has produced 6 new works of art in 2009-2010. They all recount a moving image story - each in its own way. For this project, Contour selected the upcoming Belgian artist Nicolas Provost.

The participating partner organisations are exhibiting the works in 2011.

Together with their organisations, the 6 selected artists will investigate new forms of narrative art with moving image. The results will lead to a publication.

Contour presents its partners:
