From April 20 to 23, Brussels will again become the center of international attention in the art scene. One hundred fifty-two galleries from 32 countries can be found at Art Brussels, which aims to attract young, international art in the central hall of the Brussels Expo. Above all, the Brussels art fair has its sights set on collectors with purchasing power from the Benelux countries and the German Rhineland.
One should expect a familiar concept for the fair this April. The makers of the fair are sticking to the tried and tested. This includes - and is pleasing - a large number of curated areas. Among them, one area stands out: "Prime." The idea behind it is to show works by artists with significant exhibitions in international institutions.
What else is there to see? Under the name "Solo," for example, individual artists from 29 galleries will be put in the spotlight. Among others, the video artist Korakrit Arunanondchai, the performance artist Marinella Senatore and the painter Aneta Kajzer. For example, the "Discovery" section deals with sculptural works by the Cologne KuK-Gallery. And: Twelve positions of the 20th century can be discovered in the "Rediscovery" area.
