Inside + outside Art Brussels, along with Girls Heart Brussels + Independent Brussels, Apr 19 – 23

20 April 2017

The 35th edition of Art Brussels is on at the Belgian capital’s Tour & Taxis landmark building opens April 21 to 23.

The 2017 art fair will be host to 145 galleries, and is divided into sections which include Discovery (young and emerging), Prime (established modern and contemporary artists), Rediscovery (art work spanning from 1917 to 1987, including both living and deceased artists) and Solo presentations, which offer an in depth approach to viewing an artist’s practice.

There are a number of other events happening outside of the art fair that we recommend, including Indpendent Brussels, running April 19 to 23, and the fifth edition of Girls Heart Brussels that focuses solely on “lesbian, queer and feminist initiatives.”

Some of our recommendations include:

–  Sara Sejin Chang (Sara van der Heide) premieres film Brussels (2016) at Les Brigittines, Apr 21
– Miaux live performance at Les Brigittines, Apr 22
Aline Bouvy gives a guided tour of Maison Grégoire, Apr 23

Indpendent Brussels

Mohamed Namou @ Proyectos Monclova, Sep 23 – Nov 5

23 September 2016

Mohamed Namou is presenting solo exhibition Trash-Talking: D’où naît une action parallèle at Mexico City’s Proyectos Monclova, opening September 23 and running to November 5.

Working fluidly with different media, the Paris-based artist explores the image, “tracing out its sources, from the concept to its concrete visibility.” He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2014) and has shown internationally. His last solo exhibition High Resolution, Step 1 was on at Paris’ mor charpentier (2014).

The show is one of over forty exhibitions happening during Gallery Weekend Mexico with over thirty-four galleries and independent spaces participating.

Visit the gallery webpage for more details.**
