For the sixth time, the international contemporary art exhibition in Esch-sur-Alzette, bringing together artists from the Grand Duchy and further afield, is to be held in the main town in the former mining area of the Grand Duchy. Organised by the friendly association of former workers at the ARBED VII rolling mill in Esch-Belval and the Cercle artistique Esch, the exhibition has attracted 17 artists from six different countries, showcasing artistic creativity and the cultural aspect of a town heavily marked by its steelmaking past.
This year will be the first time the works will be shown in the art gallery at the theatre in Esch, a change welcomed by the organisers. A panel will select the winner of the Grand Prix offered by the town of Esch-sur-Alzette, and the winners of the prizes in the two- and three-dimensional art categories.
The exhibition will open its doors at 6 p.m. on 12 February. The works will then be on display until 11 March, from Tuesdays to Sundays, between 3 and 7 p.m. It is closed on Sundays and during bank holidays.
