The 39th edition of Art Brussels will take place from Thursday 20 April to Sunday 23 April 2023. One of the most exciting and established art fairs in Europe, Art Brussels 2023 will be held in Halls 5 and 6 of Brussels Expo, the Art Deco icon built for the 1935 Brussels International Exposition.
With numerous SOLO gallery presentations and a record number of dedicated REDISCOVERY stands, Art Brussels will continue to be more thoughtfully curated, engaging and compelling than ever. The fair will return with an exceptional international programme that offers a unique mix of established artists and emerging talent.
“A diverse range of artists and galleries is what has helped to establish Art Brussels as Europe’s leading fair for discovery. We’re excited about the move to Brussels Expo which will inject a new dynamic into the fair experience,” Nele Verhaeren, Managing Director of Art Brussels, said. “We’re working on surprising new elements alongside special commissions and museum calibre presentations. This includes the highest ever number of galleries in REDISCOVERY, featuring works from the 20th century, which will be exhibited in their own dedicated section for the first time.”
