ArtSlant - All venues en-us 40 AEROPLASTICS Contemporary, 32 rue Blanche, 1060 Brussels, Belgium <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="">AEROPLASTICS Contemporary</a> occupies a very special place in the art gallery scene in Brussels and Belgium. Jerome Jacobs' decision at the end of 1998 to take over a large town house not far from the Stephania Square was already of itself inherently unusual. At that time there seemed to be a trend towards moving to the lower part of the city with many gallery owners setting up premises in the vast, disused warehouses along the sides of the canal &ndash; some more successfully than others. By opting for an old building in an upmarket area of the city, Jerome Jacobs was purposely drawing attention to the essentially bourgeois aspect of art collection that others were seeking to dismiss; but above all he was setting up a framework for a hitherto unexplored dialogue between often audacious works of art and rooms more designed to house academic paintings and 1900s curios than multimedia installations. Parquet flooring, red carpet, high ceilings, stucco mouldings and gilding, huge mirrors perched on mantelpieces &ndash; the d&eacute;cor is as far removed as one could possibly imagine from the <em>white cube</em> aesthetic.</p> Fri, 20 Nov 2015 16:51:07 +0000 Albert Baronian, Rue Isidore Verheyden 2, 1050 Brussels, Belgium <p style="text-align: justify;">Albert Baronian opened his first gallery in 1973 and immediately enjoyed international success thanks to the presentation of Arte Povera artists Alighiero e Boetti, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Gilberto Zorio.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Later, as president of the Gallery's Association, the Brussels Art fair took a more international turn whilst under his direction.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Edmond Francey began his career more than ten years ago at Yvon Lambert gallery in Paris.

There, he organised major shows such as "Picasso, Artist of the century" and "Joan Miro a retrospective".

All the exhibited artists are each, in their own manner, able to express their emotions through a political vision of the world while, at the same time, posing questions of representation and taking into consideration their historical knowledge of the media which they choose as their means of communication.</p> Tue, 04 Feb 2014 06:08:38 +0000 Almine Rech Gallery Brussels, 20 rue de l'Abbaye, 1050 Brussels , Belgium Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:24:32 +0000 Antwerp Accessible Art Fair, Radisson Blu Park Lane Hotel, Van Eycklei 34, B - 2018 Antwerp, Belgium <p>The Accessible Art Fairs have a very simple goal: to bring visitors the best selection of contemporary art from all over the world in a casual, friendly atmosphere.”</p> Mon, 20 May 2013 13:29:58 +0000 anyspace, 59 RUE VAN EYCK, BRUSSELS 1050 <p style="text-align: justify;">the |&nbsp;<strong>anyspace&nbsp;</strong>| whatever<br /> <br /> <strong>anyspace</strong> is primarily an area of freedom, an interdisciplinary and multifunctional exhibition space.<br /> <br /> The name "anyspace" is a contraction of "any-space-whatevers" used by G. Deleuze to describe cinematographical shots that create a fragmented space in the narrative, without predetermined orientation and open to an infinite number of possible connections, a "suspended time" of pure freedom.<br /> <br /> Located in Brussels, near the Avenue Louise, in the heart of a district of galleries, this small space opens onto the street through a large window lit night and day. So it is always visible from the outside. This project was initiated by Frederic Collier, independent curator, former director of contemporary art galleries, including Galerie Rodolphe Janssen for ten years.<br /> <br /> <strong>anyspace</strong> is as a platform for projects and artistic achievements in a broad sense, non-exclusive in terms of "style", technique or nationalities. <em>anyspace</em> aims to promote contemporary art and contemporary culture through projects that focus on research, the stimulation of the experimental and the interdisciplinary, in an international context.<br /> <br /> <strong>anyspace</strong> wishes to expose young emerging artists as well as more experienced artists to re-discover. The program will also include "confrontations" and "reconciliations" between artists and small thematic exhibitions. <em>anyspace</em> serves as a multifunctional space for exhibitions, but also screenings or lectures.</p> Tue, 20 May 2014 09:16:20 +0000 Appartement Elisa Platteau, Varkensmarkt 12 rue du Marché aux Porcs , B-Brussel, 1000 Bruxelles , Belgium <p style="text-align: justify;">Appartement Elisa Platteau will host exhibitions for one year.

In a time when digital information overload, industrial populism and corporate branding set the tone, the arts centre devotes itself to new forms of visibility and publicity. Argos&rsquo; territory is comprised of the audiovisual and plastic arts, whereby much attention is given to the interface with other disciplines and to the conscious and alert association with evolutions within the information society.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />Central to the workings is the artist, someone who defends critical singularities and confronts us with what is positioned outside of ourselves. Serving as an intermediary between the artist and the public, Argos strives to be a place for meeting, dialogue, and exchange. Its functions include production, conservation and archiving, as well as presentation &ndash; exhibitions, film and video showings, lectures and performances; additionally, Argos houses a public media library and provides a service for the international <a href="" target="_self">distribution</a> of artists&rsquo; films, videos and multimedia installations.</p> Sun, 09 Aug 2015 15:41:32 +0000 Art Brussels, Tour & Taxis, Avenue du Port 86C, BE - 1000 Brussels, Belgium <p style="text-align: justify;">Every year in April, Art Brussels welcomes 30,000 professionals, collectors and art lovers from all over the world.
