Located in the heart of Europe, artbrussels will welcome 170 galleries from 23 countries, representing contemporary art by more than 2000 international artists. More than 30.000 visitors will travel to Brussels to be part of the spring’s most exciting contemporary art event.

Next to the great number of exhibitors participating for many years, artbrussels is proud to announce the arrival of 59 galleries participating for the first time and thus contributing to the uniqueness of the fair. Other than works by internationally renowned values, collectors, art critics and curators love the fair for the multitude of new talent and trends to be discovered.

An impressive number of Belgian established artists and upcoming talent such as Hans Op de Beeck, Koen Van den Broek, Jan Vercruysse, Wim Delvoye, Jan Fabre, Michel François, Panamarenko, Walter Swennen and Marthe Wéry , are joined by great artists from abroad amongst who Louise Bourgeois, Wang Du, Damien Hirst, Julian Opie, Tony Oursler, Robin Rhode, Ed Ruscha, Sam Samore, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Su-Mei Tse, Franz West and Erwin Wurm.

The exhibition ‘Ephemeral Fringes’, a project curated by Filip Luyckx, consists of art works and installations created especially for the event and spread throughout the fair.
Participating artists are: Georges Adéagbo (Benin), Michaël Aerts (Belgium), Philip Metten (Belgium), Veronica Brovall (Sweden / Germany), Rainer Ganahl (Austria), Fabrice Gygi (Switzerland), Honoré d’O (Belgium), Nedko Solakov (Bulgaria) and Koen Vanmechelen (Belgium).

Interesting debates concentrated on Saturday 19 April and an extensive OFF-programme including great exhibitions in museums and visits to private collections add an extra value to the fair and turn it into the exciting event it has become.
