The Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles/Paris prize

an exhibition during the 2024 season

The Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles is an Arts Centre, a catalyst of reference for contemporary Belgian creation and the artistic and cultural ecosystem in its transversality.

Through its resolutely deconsecrated and transdisciplinary programming, the Centre is mandated to disseminate and promote the work of artists based in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. Thus it promotes emerging and established approaches, from the peripheral to the established. It helps to stimulate co-productions and international partnerships, and to focus on the Belgian scene.

The Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles/Paris will reward one of the laureates of the ceramic brussels art prize, by exhibiting his/her/their work, in close collaboration with the artist, as part of the Centre’s programme in Paris (4th arrondissement) or within an event of the 2024 Season Xenos & Incommensurables.
