My very favorite art fair in Europe, the Brussels Art Fair (BRAFA), is launching a new initiative today, called Brussels Art Walk, with the participation of art dealers from Belgium, France and UK.
“From Thursday, February 17th, until Sunday, February 20th, 2022, in Brussels, collectors and art lovers will be able to meet up and discover the most beautiful pieces in ancient, modern and contemporary art exhibited by 36 galleries represented at BRAFA”, the official announcement says.
Designed as a taster event to the actual BRAFA in June, the Brussels Art Walk was a proposal by several Brussels dealers who will welcome their Belgian and foreign colleagues to exhibit in their galleries; 8 Parisian galleries and 1 London gallery will feature among the 36 participants.
The art walk will take place mainly in the historic neighborhood of the Sablon, in the lower part of the city, as well as in the galleries on both sides of the Avenue Louise, in the most high-end area of the Belgian capital.
“The initiative aims to support BRAFA exhibitors by offering them additional visibility, but its objective is also to maintain a link with collectors and to reach a new audience. It favors conviviality and exchanges, essential in these times of restrictions”, the announcement explains.
“Nothing beats the emotion experienced in front of a work of art, and since Brafa 2022 has been postponed to June 19th-26th, the galleries will present a sample of what the fair brilliantly succeeds in delivering every year: a perfect blend of styles and eras, a true journey through time and across cultures!”

Opening: Thursday February 17th, 2022, from 2pm to 9pm.
From Friday February 18th, 2022 to Sunday February 20th, 2022 from 11am to 6pm
