About Generation Brussels

Since 2018, Brussels Gallery Weekend and its galleries support the young Brussels artists by hosting the show “Generation Brussels”.

Organized by a different curator each year, the exhibition aims at highlighting young Brussels artists who have not yet been called by galleries.

Generation Brussels brings together a range of artists living and working in Brussels, whether they are art school students, recent graduates, aspiring artists or those with a little more experience.

For this year 2018, we have chosen to collaborate with Belgian Curator Maud Salembier. She collaborated with the artists on a transdisciplinary exhibition, revolved this year around the notion of « Care ».

Against the backdrop of Art Nouveau townhouses and regenerated areas a contemporary art scene is flourishing in Brussels. A generation of artists is drawn to the city for its multicultural flavour and vibrant art community, anchored by galleries, non-profits, schools and residencies. Their work deals with themes of nostalgia, the exploration and documentation of architecture and nature and the tropes of disappearance and memory. It plays with the role of description, of telling things as they are, or inventing new realities.

Generation Brussels wants to discover, recognise and give support to this generation and bring together artists based in Brussels and working in different media such as drawing, installation, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography and video.
