The Out-Door-Cinema Invites Exhibition Visitors to Tune in From Outside

Art has long existed outside of gallery spaces, but it's interesting to note the dynamic established with the Out-Door-Cinema. This project blurs the threshold between the inside and the outside of that wall; between what's considered a closed collection and what's on public display in the city.

The Strombeek Cultural Center in Belgium now features this unique architectural extension by Pawel Grobelny that exists as a fascinating piece itself. Its steel frame cantilevers out from the concrete of the main building, providing a built-in wooden bench for visitors and a great view inside the exhibition hall.

From here, people can sit down and watch a video that plays on a television screen inside, 24 hours a day. When you're indoors, the sound is muted; however, the Out-Door-Cinema provides the audio through speakers.
