A “standout in the overcrowded global art scene…”
New York Times – Scott Reyburn (April 2017)
Retaining its youthful profile as a discovery fair, Art Brussels, one of Europe’s most original and most established fairs, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018. The fair can for the second year count on the main support of Belfius Wealth Management.
As Belgium’s leading fair, Art Brussels continues to build on its profile and track record as one of “Europe’s foremost discovery fairs”, as stated in the New York Times. Art Brussels brings something different to the international art fair practices by privileging solid artistic content and profiling surprising artistic practices which one does not see at other art fairs.
At the same time, the fair welcomes a large number of important international established galleries, many of which presenting outstanding booths in the PRIME section (focusing on established artists from modern to contemporary) and some museum-quality presentations in the REDISCOVERY section (dedicated to art from 1917 to 1987, presenting living or deceased artists who are under-recognised, underestimated or forgotten). Together with the DISCOVERY section (where the focus is on young, emerging and lesser-known artists showing recent works (2015-2018)), this mix provides the necessary equilibrium a fair needs between the young and upcoming and the renowned and recognised. Moreover, Art Brussels has always emphasized SOLO presentations (an individual ambitious project dedicated to the work of one artist) thus offering the opportunity to get a more in-depth approach of the work of an artist.
