Art Brussels 2023 and Portraits International Gallery


An exclusive visit of Art Brussels 2023 and an evening at the Portraits International Gallery

Preserving its youthful profile as a discovery fair, Art Brussels is one of Europe's most distinctive and established fairs, which will hold its 39th edition in 2023. Since its foundation, Art Brussels has emerged as one of Europe's leading contemporary art fairs and is a highlight of the international art calendar.

With numerous SOLO gallery presentations and a record number of dedicated REDISCOVERY stands, Art Brussels will continue to be more thoughtfully curated, engaging and compelling than ever. The fair will return with an exceptional international programme that offers a unique mix of established artists and emerging talent. The participating galleries are divided into four different sections according to the artists exhibited: PRIME (for mid-career and established artists), DISCOVERY (emerging artists), REDISCOVERY (artists whose works from the 20th Century deserve to be placed in the spotlight again) and SOLO (solo artist presentations).

From 20 to 23 April 2023, the European capital will become a focal point for collectors, gallerists and art lovers from around the world. Art Brussels offers a unique opportunity to explore the artistic treasures and diversity of the city, which is now home to a growing number of emerging and established artists, galleries and curators.

Organised by ENCATC in partnership with the Creative Europe Desks Vlaanderen. in the framework of the very successful Cultural Happy Hours initiative, this gathering is a unique opportunity to explore the artistic richness of Brussels with colleagues from Brussels and beyond.

In order to support the Ukrainian art scene, after the visit of the fair, ENCATC invites you to continue the evening at the Portraits International Gallery to visit the current exhibition, UKRAINIAN 12, a group show of 12 diverse Ukrainian artists, spread over a century and on until 14 May 2023 to support UNHCR association “Ukrainian Voices” and Ukrainian charity Takshtab which supports internally displaced mothers and young children.
