Art in Bruges takes all forms, from musical groups on the streets, to the requisite mimes, to installations of contemporary art and of course the art of the region in the museums. This is a good example of a city that has invited international artists to “respond” to the environment of Bruges with installations throughout the city. It is also a city whose museum is limited to artists who have had a relationship with the city hence, leaving out Belgian artists who have created amazing works of art and concentrating on native sons and daughters whose work is completely derivative and not so interesting. The not so primitive Flemish Primitives are of course the stars. Not much of interest past the 15th century in the Groeninge Museum.
