The vernissage of the "Belval Plaz'ART" event will take place this evening from 17:00 to 21:00; the artistic event runs from 26 April to 6 June 2019 in Belval Plaza in Esch-Belval.
Initiated by Belval Plaza and implemented by Art Work Circle, an online platform for selling and renting works of art and promoting Luxembourg artists, Belval Plaz'ART exhibits art in its various forms. The exhibition areas are spread over the entire Belval Plaza site in Esch-sur-Alzette.
In addition to its desire to promote the attractiveness of the shopping centre, Belval Plaza wants to offer a new platform of visibility to Luxembourg artists. As such, Art Work Circle has used shop windows to present original, quality works of art, allowing visitors to enjoy the art as they walk through the centre. Both floors will exhibit works by Ben Carter, Frank Jons, Rom Lammar, Sandra Lieners, Chantal Maquet, Armand Strainchamps, Dany Prum, Marc Wagner and Christian Wilmes.
The artistic journey is completed by a Showroom installed in a currently vacant commercial cell. A little more than 30 works are presented during the opening hours of the shopping centre, constituting an exhibition in an unexpected place for contemporary art.
All the works presented, both in the showcases and in the Showroom, have the distinction of also being for sale. Here, visitors can scan a QR code placed near the works and easily access the Art Work Circle online platform for purchase. The list of exhibited works is available on www.artworkcircle or belvalplazart.lu.
In addition to the mentioned exhibitions, specific projects will be conducted with guest artists. Three large murals will be made directly on the walls of the Belval Plaza by street artists. They are the work of Daniel Mac Lloyd, Stick and Sader who will paint their work under the eyes of the customers of Belval Plaza. Two installations designed by Luxembourg artists are also on the programme.
Finally, a creative and educational workshop entitled "Initiation Graffiti" will take place on Saturday 18 May 2019 by street artist Sader. All audiences and, in particular, young audiences are invited to participate in the creation of a unique, collective and original work on a ten-metre-long wall. The result of this workshop will remain visible until the end of the event.
