The Halles Saint-Géry are happy to contribute to the amazing programme of the Grand Départ through the exhibition “Allez le Tour”.
Journalist Nicola Meskens followed the Tour de France for 15 years with the purpose of taking analog black and white pictures of “the most colourful event in the world”. Her originality can also be found in her approach of photographing the side of the road, where the loyal followers in their caravans gather up to attend one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
The Halles Saint-Géry, the regional exhibition space for cultural, environmental and living heritage of Brussels, also aims at offering a truly Brussels perspective on the bike. Therefore, “Allez le Tour” will be accompanied by a critical view on cycling in the city, thanks to Bike for Brussels (Brussels Mobility) and thanks to Critical Mass, a citizens’ movement raising awareness for bikers in the urban landscape.
