PLATFORM FOR CONTEMPORARY ART
From the Flemish masters to the surrealist movement, Belgium has a strong collecting tradition where artists such as Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Wim Delvoye, among many others, have been supported from their early stage.
This favorable environment, combined with an influx of wealthy French collectors seeking a low tax alternative in Belgium, has contributed to the art boom.
The New York Times recently qualified Brussels as “The New Berlin for Art”. Unlike Berlin, where art is made but generally not bought, or Paris, where it’s often the opposite, Brussels is a city of both commerce and creation.
