Risquons-tout (“let’s risk everything”) exhibition at WIELS

Risquons-tout is an ambitious thematic group exhibition at the Wiels Museum in which 38 contemporary artists explore risk, the unpredictable while using unexplored alternative rules. Much of it revolves around transgressions and the changes that digital culture and artificial intelligence bring in our consciousness and imagination.
