Art Brussels: 190 galleries, 2.000 artists, 30.000 visitors, 3 days… An incomplete quick tour
Art Brussels: 190 contemporary art galleries, more than 2.000 artists and probably 30.000 visitors, in 3 days. Curated by Katerina Gregos, and with a programme that tries to be a little bit different. With for instance a modest exhibition focusing on works from Belgian private collections (Portrait of the Collector as a Work of Art). With 29 solo shows, plus 6 thematic group shows selected by Gregos for the Curator’s View section. The most exciting, refreshing part of the fair? Probably the corner with 6 not-for-profit spaces, each presenting a special project for the fair. Just before Art Brussels opened its doors for the vernissage, and just before the crowds arrived, I did a quick tour.
