Arthur Cordier


The practice of Arthur Cordier (1993, BE) is that of an artist and exhibition facilitator working between Brussels and The Netherlands. With a background in communications and urban space, his work often involves the study and tactical reassembly of business strategies, efficiency and advertising. The breadth of his proposals includes the aesthetics and politics of bureaucracy, entrepreneurship and productivity, which sometimes translates into exercises taking the economic condition of the artist as a starting point. More recently he looks at landscape through the lens of highways and visual communication. He is interested in what we associate with the parasite.


Interested in organising artists into collectives, in 2018 he co-founded The Balcony in The Hague, a contemporary art venue exploring, among other themes, the paradoxes of creative work and the role of the artist as a reflection of society.

Arthur completed a master’s degree in artistic research at the Royal Academy of Arts The Hague in 2019. He has had solo exhibitions at IKOB Museum of Contemporary Art (Eupen), Hgtomi Rosa and TRIXIE (The Hague), as well as group exhibitions at the Maurits van de Laar Gallery (The Hague), the

TORCH Gallery (Amsterdam), the Bregenz Biennale (Austria), Cas-Co (Leuven) among others. In 2022 and 2023 he received the Kunstenaar START scholarship from the Mondriaan Fonds, as well as PRO Invest from Stroom Den Haag for his residency.

Arthur participated in the RAVI residency, also in Liège, in 2019.
