To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Weekend, and in recognition of their partnership with GalleriesNow, BGW Director Sybille du Roy de Blicquy highlights 15 exhibitions on in the city during the Weekend.
The Brussels Gallery Weekend is a 4-day event that marks the beginning of the art season every year in September. The next edition will take place from September 8 to 11, 2022.
More than forty galleries and other institutional and non-profit art spaces open their doors to the public to showcase the diversity and richness of Brussels’ contemporary art scene. Within this event, Brussels Gallery Weekend also organises its own exhibition called Generation Brussels which is about highlighting the Brussels young creation not yet represented by a gallery. Every year, the exhibition is curated by a different young guest curator.
This year, the Brussels Gallery Weekend celebrates its 15th anniversary and for the occasion, its meeting point will be located in an exceptional place: the former printing house of the Belgian National Bank. This breathtaking building will host the Generation Brussels exhibition highlighting twelve young Belgian talents, the unique Sculpture Factory exhibition with large-scale sculptures from twelve galleries, as well as workshops, bars, lectures, performances and many other events.
This edition also marks the record number of participants, with 47 galleries and 12 Off Program venues scattered throughout the city. The Brussels Gallery Weekend has become a must in the calendar of professionals and other art lovers, an invitation to dive into the world of contemporary art creation in the heart of the capital of Europe.
