WHEN ART SEEKS UNDERSTANDING
THE BILLBOARD AS A MEETING POINT
INSIDE The Billboard Project is a collection of artworks, documentation and research of the Billboard Project since 2007 till 2017
The Billboard Project was established in October 2007. Fifty original artworks of different Belgian and international artists were exhibited in the center of Antwerp. These artworks were placed in Agrafa and AC Billboards. The duration of the exhibition was one week. It was presented to the public as Insight and was followed by an opening journey through the exhibition.
Two years later, in July 2009 the Billboard Project was launched again, this time as Artist Statement and Communication‘ AC Billboards offered nine double sided billboards to the artists in one of the most prominent streets in Antwerp, the Schoenmarkt. During the placing of artworks in billboards the passengers manifested a great deal of interest in what was going on.
In year 2011 the Billboard Project seemed to be more than just an open air exhibition.
We became interested in the way the general public perceives the artworks that were constantly changing, depending on the time of the day, the light and the viewer….
In 2016 The Billboard became The Meeting Point, where artists, fine art students, architecture students and public could meet and contribute to an understanding of art…
