artbrussels 2006 the European platform for contemporary art

Brussels, the capital of Europe is increasingly profiling itself as a cosmopolitan and multicultural city with an intuitive feel for contemporary art. As a country, Belgium can be proud of the number of its art collectors with world-class collections. Numerous companies are also translating this passion for art into one of the cornerstones of their corporate culture. It is precisely this depth of private initiative and professionalism that combines galleries, collectors and public institutions which gives artbrussels its unique character.
artbrussels has identified itself as the international contemporary art fair of the moment, attracting participants from 20 countries. And through a rigorous selection process that limits the number of galleries taking part, the event has a genuine brilliance that gives it an edge.

The very young – though excellent – emerging galleries from the First Call and Young zones highlight the dynamic character of artbrussels, together with the one man shows they exemplify the truly innovative spirit of the fair.
artbrussels tracks the trends and movements in the international art world closely and as such will be introducing a new zone: Modernist and Contemporary Design. This is a natural choice and evolution as contemporary art and the high-end of the design sector address a similar audience, and thus direct themselves to identical markets. The synergy between the two is clear.

Its no great surprise given the composition and standard artbrussels is year after year the place where the entire international art world comes together.
