Brussels Gallery Weekend

Brussels Gallery Weekend celebrates the general reopening of Brussels contemporary art galleries and non profit spaces, gathering together great shows all around the city.

For a general overview of the event:

This year the Brussels Gallery Weekend has its Meeting Point in the center of Brussels where you will be able to enjoy drinks but also a show and finally discover some projects around editions :

The Bar | Gather around a drink and exchange about the gallery shows. This will be the perfect place to meet before, during or after your visits.

BGW Show – “Fried Patterns” | An exhibition bringing together a diversity of artists, reflecting Brussels as a dynamic hive for contemporary art, while placing a special emphasis on emerging and young artists.

Kunst Aan Zet | This Flemish initiative collaborates with multiple art galleries to promote and exhibit the work of Flanders and Brussels based artists. The participating Brussels galleries present a selection of affordable artwork. Thanks to the interest-free art loan, a wider audience of art lovers can enjoy purchasing art.

Triangle Books Triangle Books presents its two new publications in a site-specific display. “Ads” reproduces Pierre Leguillon’s collection of advertisements featuring artists, while “ The Anthology 2011-2016” gathers the archive of the editorial and curatorial platform Le Salon, which is also reinterpreted in a new sculptural installation by Willem Oorebeek.

Rectangle Collaborating with Rectangle’s signature billboard, Dome Wood takes the opportunity to campaign his vision of an “Artificial Meditation Centre for Autonomous Power” while interweaving the upcoming catalogue of Rectangle’s exhibition history. As such, propaganda and art come together in the manner of ‘diagrammatic narratives’ already seen in the work of Dome Wood.

EAT MY PAPER EAT MY PAPER is delighted to invite twelve artists based in Belgium from various artistic spheres with self-publishing as common trait : fanzine, book-object and multiple. EAT MY PAPER wishes to show the field of independent publishing.

The Skateroom At the occasion of Brussels Gallery Weekend, The Skateroom is presenting unique limited boards imagined and created by several Belgian artists. The aim of this project is to fund 1000 skate lessons in Brussels for unaccompanied minor refugees. Are participating: Nel Aerts, Charlotte Beaudry, Martin Belou, Jana Cordenier, Hadrien du Roy, Michel François, Gaillard & Claude, Jurgen Ots, Sebastien Reuzé, Michael Van den Abeele, Els Vermang, Pieter Vermeersch, Leen Voet as well as the Van Eyck gallery.
