During ‘Van Eyck: Cosmopolitan’, twelve different artists with a migration background will enter into a dialogue with the Ghent Altarpiece as painted by the Van Eyck brothers.

They will work on an artistic answer across different disciplines for several months. Apart from the personal diversity of the artists, there is also room for diversity in terms of artistic disciplines: music, word, dance, visual arts and other disciplines can be explored.  The resulsts of this voyage of artistic discovery will be displayed in a unique exhibition at St James' Church. A project by ORBITvzw, Novgorod, De Centrale and VOEM.
