The sequel to The Sea - Salut d’honneur Jan Hoet (2015) opened on the 22nd of October 2017. In this second edition of the international triennial exhibition, the ‘raft’ plays a pivotal role.

The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely  is an exhibition about the imagination of the expedition and the destination of the artist.

Earlier this year, the artist Jan Fabre was invited to curate this new edition, a challenge that he accepted with enthusiasm! Joanna De Vos will co-curate the project.

Some names : Théodore Géricault, Michael Borremans, Luc Tuymans, Steve McQueen, Mike Figgis,...
