Art and Bike Tour: Anthea Missy
As part of Urban Summer, Bozar, in collaboration with the ProVélo association, invites you to join in a series of thematic bike rides across Brussels. For this occasion, we asked 4 artists based in Brussels to imagine a route through the city inspired by their artistic practice and their personal experience, each telling a different story of Brussels. From the Mont des Arts to Tour&Taxis, from Porte de Namur to the Parc du Cinquantenaire, join us to discover the places and the stories told by these artists: Anthea Missy, Benjamin Tollet, Anne Paulicevich & Pascal Verbeken.
"L'amour vaincra!" Bike tour, a magical journey of poetry, romance and resilience through the city walls.
Anthea Missy is an artist from street art culture and lives in Brussels. In her murals, she creates stories around cute characters with a pop-art design. Her most notable Brussels works include Ihsane Jarfi, a portrait of an LGTBQI victim, as part of a campaign to raise awareness of the integration of diversity, and Women Bike the City, a work that sees the bicycle as a means of freedom for reconnecting with the inner child and serving female emancipation.
