Beaufort 24, the Triennial of Contemporary Art by the Sea, returns to the Belgian coast in 2024. From March until November, 18 installations will be on display in the provinces of West Flanders and Westtoer, Belgium.

First created in 2003, for the eighth edition the organisers are emphasising Beaufort’s seaside setting and accessibility, as well as the permanent sculpture park. The exhibition is free to the public. Eight of the sculptures will become part of the sculpture park.

“The eighth edition of the Beaufort Triennial is …an invitation to explore various perspectives and familiar expressions, and to unravel the intricate web of relationships, threads, loops, braids, cables, swarms, and scales,” says Wuyts.

You can also visit the Beaufort Sculpture Park, which has 30 sculptures from previous versions of Beaufort. Selected sculptures from this year’s festival will be displayed here permanently.

Beaufort is not the only triennial in Flanders in the summer of 2024. Read our preview of the Bruges Triennial which takes place at roughly the same time. The triennials overlap in Zeebrugge where a shared artwork by British artist Ivan Morison will be on display to the public.
