Art Brussels to celebrate 30 years of innovation
The 19th of April will see the return of Art Brussels for a very important milestone in the event’s history, as it marks its 30th birthday.
Art Brussels sees a mixture of artwork featured, with pieces by both young, emerging artists and more established figures in the art world being displayed, making it a must-visit event on art lovers’ calendars.
This year’s monumental event will see a total of 182 international contemporary art galleries housed for attendees to peruse. These will include more than 2,000 artists of varying levels of fame and notoriety.
The event has a real global feel, with pieces from a variety of nations. Around a quarter of the work on display hails from the host nation with the rest being made up other European countries’ works and pieces from around the world.
Some 25,000 people are expected to attend the fair with the variety and diversity among guests also adding to the mix of flavours available. One in every three guests are expected to come to the event from outside Belgium.
A number of these will undoubtedly be collectors and investors looking to see what the event has to offer. Up for grabs will be a variety of works ranging in price and topic.
Works can be purchased for anywhere between €2,000 and upwards of €300,000 with meaning that whatever level of collector or however much buyers wish to spend there will be something out there.
On show will be works of contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, video installations and performance art, many of these being put together by respected names.
Again, whichever type of art buyers are looking to acquire while at the festival, they shouldn’t encounter too many problems.
Galleries such as First Call, Young Talent, The Gallery Zone and New Look will occupy the event with each one bringing something special to the party.
Art Brussels runs until the 22nd April and it seems as though there could be plenty more birthdays left to celebrate if things continue as they are for the event.
