Maison Particulière in Brussels is a non-profit art center created by the initiative of a couple of art collectors. Maison Particulière took form out of their deep desire for sharing their joy of living among ancient and modern works of arts. Theirs is a creative project on a human scale that gives them myriad options for expressing their boundless love of art, in a residence open to the public without previous appointment.
Set in the heart of Brussels by the Place du Châtelain, this elegant townhouse has been converted into a unique setting that reinvents the interior space of a private residence, thus creating a novel approach to exhibiting works of art.
As a way of enjoying art every day in a home environment, and by inviting art collectors to also exhibit select pieces from their own collection, Maison Particuklière stimulates an individual response on the part of the viewer contemplating works of ancient or contemporary art. Thus, Maison Particulière is not merely an outlet to exhibit their private collection exclusively. On the contrary, they present temporary installations grouping several contributors: collectors, artists and others, with a passion for the arts in common. Each installation features a main theme that serves as a thread to the subjective (and often unexpected) selection offered by the various guest- patrons. This unique space is truly a place to engage in exchange.
Since its opening in spring 2011, Maison Particulière has welcomed more than 26.000 visitors. Central to their appreciation of the art center is the special atmosphere dedicated to conversation and exchange, and the opportunity to settle comfortably, make oneself at home, and simply live with the art.
Maison Particulière is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday without previous appointment, from 11 am to 6 pm. Admission is 10 euros per person. Admission is free for members of the association, under 18 and students under 26 with ID. A commented visit for groups (maximum 15 persons) during the opening hours of Maison Particulière can be arranged upon request.
Maison Particulière is a nonprofit organization with a single objective: to share a passion.
