This coming April, the 29th edition of the Art Brussels, contemporary art fair, features 170 of the world’s leading galleries from 26 countries. The high quality mix of young talent galleries and established names is enhanced by a great number of major newcomers from leading art capitals. The complete exhibitors list is available here.

Besides strong gallery presentations, Art Brussels hosts 6 ARTIST PROJECTS, commissioned by Mousse. Mousse invited Matthew Brannon, Claire Fontaine, Liam Gillick, Linder, Nora Schultz and Andrea Zittel to work inside the structure of the fair—its identity and institutional character—in order to explore the very experience of visiting the fair.

Art Brussels 2011 offers an exciting off-program with visits to museum shows, off-events, private and corporate collections, receptions and parties, the sculpture exhibition “Art in the City” and the Brussels Gallery Night.
