Explore Brussels' contemporary art scene at Brussels Gallery Weekend

15:15 24/08/2021

Discover the capital’s contemporary art scene at the 14th edition of the Brussels Gallery Weekend from 9 to 12 September.

The four-day event returns bigger and better after a Covid-modified format in 2020. A record 46 galleries and other art spaces are participating in gallery open door visits, tours, talks and more. 

Brussels Gallery Weekend Antoine Porcher

The annual art bonanza marks the start of the artistic season, showcasing the depth of talent and diversity of the scene in Brussels. It includes the fourth edition of the exhibition Generation Brussels, promoting the work of 10 emerging young artists at the Tour à Plomb cultural centre and Lebeau building in the Sablon. Curated by Dagmar Dirkx and Zeynep Kubat, the show explores the theme of identity.

The ambitious programme is organised around some nine guided tours, each dedicated to different areas of the city. The tours combine visits of galleries and 14 guest venues, which are principally non-profit institutions and artist spaces. Other highlights include a project by young artists (Home 18-24) and an exhibition in the shop window of Kunst Aan Zet.
