artbrussels celebrates its 25th edition!

From Friday 20 to Monday 23 April inclusive, the 25th edition of the contemporary art fair artbrussels takes place in Brussels Expo. A select group of leading galleries from 20 countries brings work by both established and young, up-and-coming artists. Visitors can look forward to browsing more than 2,000 artworks, offering a fantastic, actual overview of the latest developments in the contemporary art world.
artbrussels may have a youthful image, but it also has 25 years of experience. It first saw the light of day as a modest art fair in 1968. Art Actuel, as it was then called, was a cutting-edge biennial fair with art from leading galleries, brought together at the invitation of the foremost Belgian exhibitors.

By 1997 the foundations of a new future had been laid. After several major changes, including the transformation from a biennial to an annual fair, it grew into an internationally recognised event of some stature. artbrussels is now a top-class player on the international art market.

From the start artbrussels has had the profile of a contemporary art fair for established and for young talent. The fair is a favourite of collectors and curators alike, a place for real discoveries. artbrussels can therefore justifiable be described as the contemporary art fair of the moment.

The 25 th anniversary will not go by unnoticed. For this jubilee edition the fair has been restyled, with an interesting line-up of new projects.

They include the exhibition “25/25″ in which 25 artworks will be selected from works acquired over the years by collectors, institutions and museums at artbrussels. For the very first time, Belgian artists have been invited to create an intervention for the fair: Jan De Cock, Eric Duyckaert, Ann Veronica Janssens, Chris Martin, Hans Opdebeek.
