Much has been said about the so-called “Belgian collector.” For captains of industry and local dentists alike, collecting contemporary art almost seems to be part of the Belgian DNA—which explains why the country is reputed for having the highest concentration of art collectors per square kilometer. Yet, as more and more Parisian collectors make the move to Brussels, the Belgian collector is becoming increasingly French. In addition to Art Brussels’ Portrait of the Collector as a Work of Art, the strong presence of collectors i... [more]

Comparison Leads to Violence In her dreams Hillary Clinton was funny and poignantly critical. In one such dream she found herself back in the dreaded and competitive atmosphere of parenting a child through a junior high school science fair. Where all around her were the co-labourings of father and daughter, mother and son, she had left her younglings to their own device to discover themselves as amateurs. The theme of this years fair, though not outwardly stated, was the crustacean-like-penis. Ebo... [more]

What are States of Mind, if not the union of our bodies and souls, our thoughts and emotions? Our states of mind form the essence of our connection to the world, ushering us through each moment in our lives. Remembrances, lapses, feelings, thoughts confessed or repressed… States of Mind invites you to stroll through a House, a metaphor for our unconscious, in which each room, salon or chamber, represents a section of our brain, the image and representation of our soul.The House as an a...

The Nathalie Obadia Gallery is pleased to present the work of Joris Van de Moortel in his first solo show in Brussels. Painter, sculptor, performer and musician, Joris Van de Moortel will use the post-industrial architecture of the gallery to encompass his many-shaped work that is transformed to set off the space exhibiting it.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: ART BRUSSELS 2013 By Andrea Alessi Planning a trip to art fairs – plural because, let’s face it, where one art fair goes, others are sure to follow – is an exercise in strategic thinking. Tactical decisions balance hopes, dreams, and opportunity costs, and every choice you make could lead you to find, or miss, the best deal, most worthwhile elbow-greasing, sickest party, most enlightening roundtable, or tastiest canapé. The simultaneity of fairs and events within a short t... [more]

Greta Meert Gallery presents its first solo exhibition by Valerie Krause (°1976, Herdeke, she lives and works in Düsseldorf). Valerie Krause's method is synthetic; her formal language is free and open. With this exhibition she shows the immense potential of her design practice, ranging from robust works to more spatial constructions, the strong linearity of which creates lines of fracture in the space. The materials used and their qualities dictate the design; moments of transition, such as the transfo... [more]
