Flanders has no huge contemporary art institutions comparable to Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou, nor does it have blockbuster exhibitions, but it does have an exceptional wealth and variety of small and medium-sized museums, art centres, workshops, galleries, festivals and magazines with international reputations and a keen focus on artists and research. Few regions have so many important artists who work and exhibit both in their own country and abroad. The great dynamism between artists, organisations and educational institutions is also attracting more and more foreign artists to live and work here on a temporary or permanent basis.
