A townhouse of a different kind: Maison Particulière (Brussels) presents contemporary art from private collections

If only my house would look like this… I finally managed to pay a visit to an art center of a wonderfully different kind in Brussels: Maison Particulière. This renovated townhouse devoted to contemporary art opened in April 2011 and in its many rooms the owners present temporary, rather eclectic exhibitions with works of art from private collections. You can wander around freely through the house, sit in one of the many couches and flip through the catalogues with info about the artists presented. Tomorrow is the last day for a visit to Lightness?. On April 19 Maison Particulière opens its next exhibition: Struggle(s), with works by Ai Weiwei, Louise Bourgeois, Elmgreen & Dragset, Paul McCarthy and Thomas Schütte. Nice. Just one small thing: too bad you have to pay €10 for a visit, which is what you pay for a big exhibition at a big venue such as Bozar.
