Nestled in a former power station in the heart of Brussels, CENTRALE for contemporary art is the contemporary art centre of the City of Brussels. It develops a committed vision of art, beyond boundaries, and connected to the city and to society. Each year it collaborates with confirmed and emerging artists from Brussels and the international scene to produce exhibitions and multidisciplinary projects housed in its various premises.

CENTRALE.hall presents exhibitions where confirmed visual artists based in Brussels enter into dialogue with the artists of their choice, along with group exhibitions showcasing a variety of approaches. CENTRALE.box and CENTRALE.lab host emerging artists and assist them in developing their projects. Starting in 2021, CENTRALE.vitrine, at 13 rue Sainte-Catherine, showcases the projects of four artists chosen through an annual open call.

Stemming from the visual arts, CENTRALE expands its programming with performances, concerts, art film screenings, meetings, debates, and much more. CENTRALE is ultimately a comprehensive cultural project, the project of a capital city, a project for everyone, a place where art meets life.
