Art Brussels

Art Brussels is a long-running event that was first launched in 1968 and have since become a major European art fair. Around 25,000 visitors – art professionals, collectors, museum curators and simply curious – attend the April 4-day fair each year. Divided into 4 sections, approximately 150 top galleries exhibit in DISCOVERY that focuses on very recent pieces by lesser-known and emerging artists, PRIME presents established talents, REDISCOVERY focuses on the 20th century art from under-estimated or forgotten artists, and since 2019, INVITED promotes emerging galleries and art spaces that extend the strict concept of the gallery and which are newbies in the art fair world. Art Brussels is the perfect place to spot the newest trends and purchase cutting edge pieces at all prices. A programme of talks, tours and performances takes place over the weekend.

What would you say is the DNA of Art Brussels?

Besides featuring established galleries representing internationally renowned artists, Art Brussels presses great importance on emerging and undiscovered artistic talent. The DNA of the fair is inextricably linked to the burgeoning local art scene and geared towards the profile of the Belgian collectors who are known for their engaged approach and penchant for risk-taking in their collecting.

What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?

Through four distinct sections, Art Brussels comprises different types of galleries: INVITED focuses on upcoming galleries daring to challenge the classical gallery model; DISCOVERY brings galleries that actively support emerging international artists; PRIME represents contemporary or modern galleries presenting established and mid-career artists; and REDISCOVERY is dedicated to art from the 20th century, by living or deceased artists, who are underestimated or forgotten.

What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?

Art Brussels’ price range fits all categories, from accessible original works to the higher price levels.

“Art Brussels attracts adventurous, thoughtful and curious international collectors of all ages.”

I sat with @pablidelval, the artistic director of @artdubai, who presented me the upcoming edition of the fair, opening next week!
We discuss the fair’s themes of hope, healing and migration, reflecting Dubai’s multicultural landscape. Del Val emphasized the fair’s role in highlighting non-Western art narratives and its impact on Dubai’s dynamic art scene. He also discussed educational initiatives and advised first-time visitors to embrace the unique cultural experiences of Art Dubai.
