art in public space
pit is a Z33 - art in public space project organized by Z33, the house for contemporary art in Hasselt. Z33 - art in public space came into existence from the conviction that there is so much room left for art in the public space in Limburg. With Z33 - art in public space, Z33 brings art on location that dialogues in a formal as well as intrinsic way with the environment. Both national and international artists encourage passers-by and visitors to take a different look at the environment. All this fits perfectly in the mission of Z33 to invite visitors to look at everyday objects from a different perspective.
Z33 - art in public space was initiated by the famous ‘Badeend’ (2008) by Florentijn Hofman and the mega sculpture INNERCOMA (2010) by Philip Metten. In 2011, pit took off in the region of Borgloon-Heers.
De Unie Hasselt-Genk, a unique route with contemporary art in and between Hasselt and Genk, started on 21 June 2014. Find out more at www.uniehasseltgenk.be
Z33 - art in public space is a long term project that will run over several years. In the coming years, Z33 - art in public space will also settle in other landscapes and regions in Limburg, such as the Maasland and Zuid-Willemsvaart.
Z33 - art in public space is supported by the fonds voor culturele infrastructuur van de Vlaamse Overheid.
