The 68th edition of the Brussels Art Fair (BRAFA) opened its doors on January 19 at Brussels Expo, in a setting based on the theme and signs of Art Nouveau. It will remain open to the public until February 5. Renowned for its range of specialties, the fair brings together collectors from all over Europe and beyond. Our advice for a successful visit.
Art Nouveau is omnipresent in the architectural heritage of Brussels. But as soon as you enter the Brussels Art Fair (BRAFA), that’s where the magic really happens. Created in 1956, BRAFA is one of the oldest and most prestigious art fairs in the world. With the theme of Art Nouveau, the 68th edition of the Brussels Art Fair brings together no less than 10,000 works dating from antiquity to the present day, presented by 130 internationally renowned galleries from 15 countries. The stands offer a veritable journey of almost endless discovery. Prior to the opening of the Fair, paintings, furniture, art objects, jewelry, sculptures and more are studied by more than 80 experts from around the world, analyzed by a scientific laboratory and checked by the Art Loss Register.
What makes BRAFA so special is the originality of the works presented and the eclecticism of the fair. “Diversity and upward mobility are essential impulses that animate any healthy and dynamic society that at the same time assumes its primary values and projects itself in visionary advances. BRAFA is a microcosm that reflects this approach in a world where technology transcends the material, which then accesses a sphere that highlights the wealth of an artistic heritage with a thousand nuances”, said Christian Vrouyr, Secretary General of BRAFA.
