09sepAll Day12BRUSSELS GALLERY WEEKEND

Event Details

After this tumultuous year, the Brussels Gallery Weekend is immensely excited to return to the capital of Europe from Thursday, 9 September. This fourteenth edition of the event is set to be a feast for the eyes, packed full of surprises, with no fewer than forty-six art galleries participating in the circuit this year.

As a regular fixture on the annual arts scene for almost fifteen years, the Brussels Gallery Weekend aims to highlight the dynamism of the arts sector, showcasing the know-how and talent of artists with reputations stretching far beyond Belgium, thereby affirming our support and engagement with the Belgian art scene.

Last year, the event was of course disrupted, but looking to the future, the team have made the best of things, modernising and becoming ever stronger, thanks in particular to the brand new website and exhibitions in shop windows. The team of organisers – led by Sybille du Roy de Blicquy, director of BGW – are delighted to be welcoming public visitors back to this fourteenth edition, with a focus on art that is pleasing to the eye while of course still paying attention to the health and safety of visitors.

This year, the BGW is bigger and better than ever, involving a total of forty-six galleries (including Baronian Xippas, Clearing, etc.) – equal to a twenty percent increase – including a number of newcomers such as Jacqueline Martins, Nino Mier, Super Dakota, Ballroom Project or Nosbaum Reding (the full list can be consulted on: www.brusselsgalleryweekend.com).

Fourteen guest venues – mostly institutions and artist spaces are being added to the route and complete the programme, helping to keep art thriving in Brussels.

This year also sees the return of the “Generation Brussels” exhibition. The exhibition’s fourth edition, coordinated by its two curators, Dagmar Dirckx & Zeynep Kubat, will explore identity, showcasing work by eleven young artists, at the Tour à Plomb cultural centre and the Lebeau building in Sablon.

Other highlights include the Project by young artists from Home 18-24, the shop window of Kunst Aan Zet, a project by IRSA, as well as our highly popular guided tours which will also be on offer again. And another new thing: you can find QR codes at the entrances to the galleries; simply scan these using your mobile phone to access a sound file in which gallery owners present their spaces and works, offering a more personalized experience…

Yet another reason to save the date of the weekend of 9-12 September, and make sure you don’t miss the fourteenth Brussels Gallery Weekend.
