Les Mondes Inversés

Following extensive renovations, B.P.S.22, the Centre for Contemporary Creativity in Hainaut, will reopen its doors as part of Mons in 2015 with a contemporary art exhibition devoted to popular culture, entitled Inverted worlds. Throughout history, artists have been inspired by the popular culture that surrounds them. The varied sources include objects, crafts, patterns of social organisation and behavioural practices. Even today, in Europe and
elsewhere, numerous visual artists draw inspiration from this quarter. 

Inverted worlds brings together a significant collection of contemporary art which borrows in various ways from popular culture. Crossing disciplines and drawing on the roots of local cultures (the Ducasse de Mons, Binche Carnival, etc.), it invites international artists to take part in a major public encounter between contemporary art and popular culture.
