The winner of the 2023 Eeckman Art Prize is Rémie Vanderhaegen, a Belgian artist born in 1994 and living in Brussels. He has been exhibiting his work in Belgium at various solo and group exhibitions since 2016 and has been involved in the curatorial projects of the artist-run project space SpareWheel since 2021. We invite you to come and discover his solo show from October 5 to 8 at Art on Paper.
