With Beaufort 04, the Triennial for Contemporary Art by the Sea is now in its fourth edition in 2012. The triennial has become a successful and unmissable cultural event. The Flemish coast and contemporary art meet again in monumental installations and intriguing works, embedded in the unique biotope of the dynamic coastal municipalities. For Beaufort 04, curator Phillip Van den Bossche made a well-considered selection of contemporary European artists. The selection of works of art is a reflection of what is happening on today's European art platform. The artists respond to new and existing work in the non-museum environment and make the visitors to the museum part of an imaginative and imaginary world.
