Last Wednesday Emma Hart won the 6th Max Mara Art Prize for Women, following in the footsteps of internationally acclaimed artists like Laure Prouvost and Andrea Büttner. As the prestigious award finds another winner, we learn more about the practice of an exciting emerging artist. But the announcement is also an opportunity for reflection: is an art prize exclusively for women still necessary in 2016, a time when not just art institutions but also the rest of the world are paying increased...

So you walk into El Floridita, one of many Havana bars that prides itself on being a former haunt of barfly Ernest Hemmingway, and there is Guillaume Bijl, the Belgian artist known for absurd installations in which he brings a driving school or travel agency into a museum context. On your way out, you try to hail a taxi, but it is already occupied by Joëlle Tuerlinckx. In a nearby eatery, video artist Johan Grimonprez is having lunch. It feels like Havana is having a Belgian moment—and in a... [more]
That Brussels has a thriving art scene is no longer a secret to the international art community. We’ve reached the point where some media have even baptized what was formerly regarded as a dull and grey city as the “New Berlin.” There’s no better moment to check it out with your own eyes than during the seventh edition of Brussels Art Days (BAD), Brussels’ reply to the Gallery Weekend in Berlin you might say. Twenty-nine galleries open their doors next weekend, while others not affiliated under... [more]

Among Belgium’s many private collections, one of the most impressive is definitely Annick and Anton Herbert’s. Focused on minimal and conceptual art from 1968 to 1989, it is internationally respected and of a museum-like quality. Indeed, various institutions (Eindhoven’s Van Abbemuseum, Barcelona’s MACBA, Austria’s Kunsthaus Graz…) have already dedicated exhibitions to it. Since June 2013, the collection has also found a permanent dwelling in a former industrial building in Ghent, the city... [more]

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’ , the strong presence of collectors in...

With a great deal of high-quality exhibitors and artworks, exciting satellite shows, and a breath-taking setting – imagine an overwhelming skyline, palm trees, and a relaxed, holiday-like atmosphere – Art Dubai can look back at a successful 8th edition. “This is one of the most globalized art fairs in the world,” says Antonia Carver, Art Dubai’s director. “One third of the artists are from the Arab countries and half of them are from the Middle East and Southeast Asia.” Thanks to its...
