There are a number of things Bruges is known for, a unique tourist destination, a medieval metropolis of Flanders, the Venice of the North and for me as a young French Art major, it is most famous for being the cradle of Flemish Renaissance art. But this summer Bruges will stand for something a little more modern: contemporary art. Until the end of November the city is hosting the Bruges Triennial featuring 18 international contemporary artists who have created installations displayed throughout the city.
