artists from Brussels & periphery

From to


On the occasion of its reopening after refurbishing its spaces, Centrale presents the exhibition hosting (10.10.2024 > 09.02.2025).

hosting welcomes and celebrates the artistic diversity of the Brussels scene, opening up to the city, to its periphery, its artists and its audiences. The exhibition is presented as a large-scale cabinet of curiosities occupying all of Centrale’s spaces.

Inspired by the Summer Exhibition, an annual event held at the Royal Academy in London, hosting is an open call to Brussels-based artists of all generations and disciplines in the visual arts. The Brussels Art Centre is intent on welcoming artists from both the city’s center and its periphery, thus outlining the contours of a wider and more inclusive city, whose perimeter might be called, as says artist Pélagie Gbaguidi, the 20th commune of Brussels. The exhibition hosting questions the notions of hospitality, of territory, of solidarity and of emergence in today’s art ecosystem. Talks and performances will take place in connection with these questions.

The works are selected and curated by an artistic committee including guest artists Manon de Boer, Pélagie Gbaguidi, Juan Pablo Plazas and Richard Venlet, and Tania Nasielski, artistic director at Centrale.

A sale of the exhibited works is organized at Centrale, of which all proceeds go to the artists: a solidarity fund (20% of the proceeds) will be redistributed to all the exhibiting artists of hosting.
