Generation Brussels

Generation Brussels is an exhibition that highlights young artists not yet represented by galleries.

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.

Generation Brussels revolves this year around the notion of « Care » as developed by Joan Tronto, following Carol Gilligan. It appeared to the curator that many emerging artists developed practices that take into account caring for others, interdependence, relationships, with the individual and/or his environment, but also the notion of vulnerability of life and matter. In a world caught up in visible and invisible flows, sometimes constraining, sometimes carrying lucky coincidences; the hand that gives, heals or repairs, the speech that soothes or the ear that listens, nature recomposed or mystified, as well as the receptacle space of minute signs of mutation, bring about surprising forms, informed witnesses and subjective of the upheavals that our daily lives are undergoing”.
