For the Province of East Flanders, the biennial prize for visual art is an excellent way to discover promising artists and then encourage and offer them opportunities to develop further in their continued artistic career.

Martin Uvijn - The Tribute, 2012

The work of Martin Uvijn (°Ghent 1960), whether it’s his paintings, drawings or very recent gouaches, feels surprising and mostly oozes symbolism. It looks like simplicity itself, but on closer inspection, this is purely illusory.

expo Martin Scorsese

On the occasion of its fortieth anniversary, the Ghent Film Festival in October 2013 and in collaboration with the Provincial Culktural Centre Caermersklooster will honour one of the greatest American directors ever, with a spectacular retrospective exhibition of the work of Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Shutter Island, The Departed and Hugo), to be held at the Caermersklooster - Provincial Cultural Centre in Ghent.

The Serbian painter Goran Djurovic was born in Belgrade in 1952. He studied painting at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts in communist former East Germany and has lived in Berlin since 1980.

Djurovic had little interest in being taught by a master, but had been fascinated by Dostoevsky since his youth and experienced a sense of déjà vu when reading his novels. In a similar way, we feel that we already “know” Djurovic’s works.
