First Look at the Brussels Art on Paper Fair - ELEPHANT

The Bozar Centre for Fine Arts plays host to the five-day contemporary drawing festival, with solo presentations from fifty galleries.


The Brussels Art on Paper fair focuses exclusively on drawing as a medium, celebrating it as a fine art within itself and using a fairly broad definition that challenges traditional assumptions that render it the process of the draughtsman or the sketcher. It brings together fifty galleries, all of whom present a single artist, making this five-day festival more like a collection of micro-exhibitions than the flurry of over-crowded booths you usually encounter at international art fairs.

Alongside these distilled shows, the Project Spaces initiative presents a further six emerging organisations (encompassing both galleries and not-for-profit initiatives) and their selected artists. These include Marianne Mispelaëre, represented by French space thankyouforcoming, Her mark-making often extends onto the walls and peripheral surfaces around her. Also Christian Camacho (with Mexico City’s Galerie Mascota) whose exercises in spatiality create impossibly surreal architectural.
