POPPOSITIONS is an annual assembly in Brussels of galleries, artist initiatives and project spaces. Conceived as an experiment with the art fair format, POPPOSITIONS aims to occupy an independent and critical position.

POPPOSITIONS’ 6th edition will take place at the ING Art Center, centrally located at the heart of Brussels museums quarter, from 20 until 23 April 2017. With the leitmotiv “Don’t Agonize, Organize” as a leading principle, the jury has sought for proposals that steer and reinvent the political imagination by proposing diverse forms of political opposition that are rich in alternatives, concrete in propositions, and delivered through everyday projects. On this premise, the jury has selected 21 project spaces, artist initiatives and galleries that re-envision what it means to be grounded, accountable and active as part of a community with shared hopes and aspirations.

VITRINE will present a solo booth of Sam Porritt. In much of his work across various media, Porritt sublimates complex questions concerning the human condition into artworks that are simple to grasp yet sometimes dizzyingly multifaceted.

Porritt will show a series of new and existing drawings alongside a new work especially made for the fair titled ‘From Bad to Worse and Back’ (2017); a carpet of the artists design made by the renowned Belgian company Limited Edition. The design of the carpet brings together two aspects of Porritt’s drawing practice by combining both his figurative and abstract tendencies.
