Art Brussels 2024 marks milestone 40th Edition: Unveiling an International Spectrum
Art Brussels takes place from Thursday 25 April to Sunday 28 April 2024.

BRUSSELS .- Art Brussels is announcing its 40th edition, taking place from Thursday 25 April to Sunday 28 April 2024. One of Europe's most distinctive and established fairs, this anniversary edition of Art Brussels will be held in Halls 5 and 6 of the Brussels Expo, the Art Deco icon built for the 1935 Brussels International Exposition.

While celebrating its 40th edition and being the second oldest contemporary art fair (Art Cologne started in 1967, one year before Art Brussels), Art Brussels remains one of Europe's leading contemporary art fairs and is a highlight of the international art spring calendar.

The past few years and thanks to its rich history, vibrant energy, diverse communities, and thriving arts scene, Brussels has become Europe’s epicentre of contemporary art and one the world’s most exciting creative cities.

The fair returns with an exceptional international programme featuring galleries from 31 countries, offering a unique mix of established artists and emerging talent. Art Brussels is also delighted to announce the continued support of the two main partners, Delen Private Bank and Bank Van Breda.

The fair is pleased to announce the support of the City of Brussels expressed by Philippe Close, the mayor of the city, which is committed to acquiring an outdoor sculpture for a public space. A jury will decide which artist will be chosen from the new outdoor sculpture project, organised by Art Brussels for the first time at Brussels Expo.

Nele Verhaeren, Managing Director of Art Brussels, says:

"The upcoming edition of Art Brussels marks an important milestone, as we celebrate 40 editions. With a significant 60% of returning galleries and notable newcomers, we are extremely proud of the diverse and influential line-up. Art Brussels continues to attract leading international players with established or mid-career artists, and one in four galleries is also part of the burgeoning young art scene. The forthcoming edition promises a celebrative atmosphere with various initiatives, including Prizes for winning gallerists or artists for each section in the fair, an outdoor sculpture project in collaboration with the city, and a nostalgic flashback area where treasured souvenirs will be on display. In addition, numerous receptions will provide engaging opportunities for collectors, exhibiting gallerists and curators to connect and celebrate the rich tapestry of artistic expression."

176 galleries are presented across the fair’s four sections: 119 in PRIME, 37 in DISCOVERY, 11 in REDISCOVERY, 9 INVITED as well as 28 in the fair’s SOLO sub-section.
