American artist Craig Havens' work entitled Wheel of Fortune will be on view during Triennale Brugge in collaboration with Cultuurcentrum Brugge, opening on April 13, 2018.

This large-scale print series represents a memorial record of the inflationary character of the American economy as depicted in five Wheel of Fortune television game show wheel designs from the mid 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, 2000's and 2010's.

Outlining in stark, colorful relief the hidden social and economic implications of frequent "boom and bust" cycles, the works reveal the vagaries within an increasingly risk-tolerant global finance system over the course of the game show’s syndication and the years of the artist’s lifetime.

The work is installed in the historic De Bond site, a former cotton and wool weaving mill (1861) located just outside the city walls, and organized in partnership with Cultuurcentrum Brugge.
