This summer, BOZAR centre for fine arts opens an exhibition together with artist-run galleries from across Europe. Jaakko Pallasvuo & Viktor Timofeev are represented by the Brussels-based Komplot gallery.

The exhibition brings together the multiple realities of art practices from all over Europe. It is both a meditation on Europeanness and an attempt to gather stories, experiences, relations and encounters from a wide range of artists, curators and other engaged individuals. BOZAR gives carte blanche to five artistic constellations: Brussels-based art spaces Etablissement d’en face, Komplot and La Loge; KASK School of Arts (Ghent) and its Kunstenbibliotheek and students of Curatorial Studies; and the Orient project presented in collaboration with Kim? Contemporary Art Center (Riga) and Bunkier Sztuki (Kraków). Together they engage in a journey seen from a point in space and time, constructed with artists chosen not upon nationality but via relation. Somewhere in Between provides a unique window on today’s artistic hotbeds of Europe, it’s developments and conversations across the continent, from Brussels to Riga, from Prague to Athens, from Kraków to Lisbon, from Tbilisi to Rotterdam,…

These alliances are indicative of today’s European art scenes, where artists roam freely, without the geographic restrictions or institutional constraints that once defined the continent.

The exhibition is open from 20 June until 19 August 2018.

This project has been supported by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
