After the successful launch of INVITED last year, Art Brussels decided to again endorse galleries that are championing the evolving art market, as well as a younger generation of international galleries. As part of Art Brussels Insights, we spoke with Matteo Consonni, the owner of Madragoa, about opening up a gallery in Lisbon and about his upcoming presentation in INVITED at Art Brussels 2020.
SOLO presentations at Art Brussels are individual, ambitious projects dedicated to the work of a single artist. This year, the fair shows its dedication to curated displays with 3O SOLO presentations. At Art Brussels 2020, Knokke-based gallery Patrick De Brock will present a SOLO by the American artist Joel Mesler, who will be holding live portrait sessions at Art Brussels.
Art Brussels was inspiring – through the Discovery and Solo sections I had my first encounter with some exciting bodies of work that will help shape our curatorial vision for the future.

Michael & I buy what we love and there was a lot to love at your fair. Art Brussels is the most welcoming, friendly art fair that we have ever experienced and we made many new discoveries.

Now in its 37th edition, the Belgian capital’s annual Art Brussels has firmly established itself as the discovery fair of the contemporary art scene.
