What the flag?! 2022

‘What the flag?!’ is a project in close collaboration with Greylight Projects in which artists design flags that are hosted on flagpoles outside or inside the venues of the Very Contemporary network partners and in the public space of the centre of Heerlen (NL).

Very Contemporary, 2022 ‣ What the flag?!

The Very Contemporary network partners invite artists (of their current exhibitions or as part of their collection) to design a print for the flag. A flag from each Very Contemporary venue will be raised at a different Very Contemporary venue to show the relationship between the venues in the network.

The flags at the Very Contemporary venues are an addition to the What the Flag? exhibition in the centre of Heerlen (NL). As part of the city-centre exhibition, Greylight Projects invited a group of twelve international artists to translate their work to one or more flags, spread over different locations. A map with the locations can be found via #mappingheerlen.
