BRUssels Non European Art Fair is an event that occurs twice a year, in January and June, dedicated to old and selected tribal arts.
The Parcours des mondes is the most important international fair for extra-European, Asian and archaeological arts in the world. Since 2002, it brings together every year more than sixty of the world's best dealers in their specialties in the Beaux-Arts district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris. It is an opportunity for collectors, enthusiasts, amateurs, specialists and professionals from all over the world to come and discover masterpieces from Africa, Oceania, Asia, the Americas, and antiquities from the Mediterranean Basin and the Middle East. Every year for a week in September, the lung of the 6th arrondissement of Paris takes on the colours of the Parcours des mondes. Exhibitions, presentations, conferences, come and discover hundreds of exceptional pieces.
From 8-11 September, 47 art galleries around Brussels will be open to the public as part of the Brussels Gallery Weekend. BGW were pioneers in this type of event and this year will be bringing the city alive with contemporary art for the fifteenth year in a row. This very special occasion has a special programme to match, with a unique main venue in the former printing plant of the National Bank of Belgium, the perfect setting for large format sculptures. The Brussels Gallery Weekend has become a must in the calendar of professionals and other art lovers, an invitation to dive into the world of contemporary art creation in the heart of the capital of Europe. Throughout the long weekend, Brussels will be buzzing with exhibitions, performances, and installations. This fifteenth edition of BGW will have a record 47 galleries participating, and also a brand new concept: a central focal point in the prestigious surroundings of the Imprimerie– a former printing plant. And of course we mustn’t forget the traditional “off” programme, the “Generation Brussels” exhibition, different talks, and other surprises...
