The exhibition “Elo” (“now” in Luxembourgish) offers a snapshot of contemporary artistic creation in Luxembourg. Rather than a selection of artists, “Elo” is a platform for new creations, since the great majority of the artworks has been produced for this exhibition. It is not a question of summing up what is happening in Luxembourg in terms of contemporary art, but rather of highlighting a situation resulting from one of the most important decades concerning the development of the visual arts in Luxembourg. This rapid evolution occurred within the framework of a cultural policy and the creation of several cultural institutions, but also – on an individual level – with the growing number of artists living in Luxembourg.
