SUMMER SALON 2021:
BUY LOCAL #2

NO SUMMER SALON IN 2022

After two successful editions we're taking a break: in 2022 there will be no Summer Salon. The concept was a response to the corona crisis and the difficult situation this created for many artists. We are working out a concept for a renewed edition in 2023. To stay up to date, please register for the newsletter at www.kunsthal.gent!

Team Kunsthal Gent

On Friday 2 July at 20.00: Summer Salon 2021 - BUY LOCAL #2 will officially open. 742 works of art fill Kunsthal Gent to the brim with a cross-section of Ghent's lively visual arts scene.

With participants between 18 and 84 years of age, BUY LOCAL brings generations of Ghent artists together in an exhibition with one major common denominator: everything is for sale.

From Friday 2 July at 20.00 the works will be on show in Kunsthal Gent, but also online at zomersalon.gent, where interested buyers can get in touch with the artists.
