About the fair

History of the fair

The fair was founded in 1968 by the Association of Galleries based in Brussels and carried the nameFoire d’Art Actuel / Actuele Kunstmarkt”. In the beginning, the event was biennial, local and organised in various smaller venues all over Belgium. Princess Paola visited the fair several times. As from 1997, when Artexis (now named Easyfairs) took over the fair, it became Art Brussels, a yearly not to be missed rendez-vous for the entire international art community, organised at Brussels Expo. From 2016 till 2022, Art Brussels has been held at Tour & Taxis. In 2023, Art Brussels moved back to Brussels Expo, in the most emblematic halls of the venue 

Art Brussels is deeply grateful for the ongoing support from the expansive community of art enthusiasts across Europe. The success of Art Brussels is underpinned by Belgium’s reputation of having the highest number of art collectors per capita globally, fostering a dynamic artistic landscape with top-quality galleries and artists supported by a large amount of art lovers. 


Retaining its youthful profile as a discovery fair, Art Brussels brings together each year more than 150 contemporary art galleries among the most important of the international scene, gathered in four sections and 1 sub-section:

DISCOVERY: the focus is on young, emerging and lesser-known artists with recent works (2017-2020).
PRIME : the focus is on established artists from modern to contemporary.
REDISCOVERY: dedicated to art from the 20th century, this section presents living or deceased artists who are underrated, underestimated or forgotten.
SOLO: Art Brussels presents a selection of SOLO presentations: each presentation is an individual, ambitious project dedicated to the work of one artist; a one-artist show in the entire stand or as an extension of the main stand.
INVITED:  is a diverse section that champions the evolution of the art market and provides booths to young and upcoming galleries who have never participated in Art Brussels before.
