The 35th edition of the fair Art Brussels will take place between April 20-23, 2017 gathering a total of 142 galleries from 28 countries across the fair’s main section and Discovery, Solo, and Rediscovery, the three areas that focus on emerging artists, solo presentations, and overlooked figures respectively.

The 2017 edition will host a total of 33 newcomers, including David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles), Pearl Lam Galleries (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore), ProyectosMonclova (Mexico City), Gallery Baton (Seoul), and Skopia Art Contemporain (Genève).

Key galleries that are returning to the fair are Bernier/Eliades (Athens), Galleria Continua (San Gimignano, Beijing, Les Moulins, and Havana), dépendance (Brussels), Xavier Hufkens (Brussels), Galerie Lelong (Paris, New York), KOW (Berlin), Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna), Galleria Massimo Minini (Brescia), New Art Centre (Salisbury), Almine Rech Gallery (Paris, Brussels, London, New York), and Tina Kim (New York).

“The applications to Art Brussels this year have been of an exceptionally high standard: exclusive, original and highly distinctive, in other words, wholly in line with our concept for the fair,” Anne Vierstraete, managing director of the fair, said in a statement. “We were delighted to see a high level of renewal within the list of galleries who applied, and to have already experienced such high enthusiasm for the fair ahead of our promising 35th edition,” she added.

The 2017 edition will be again staged at Tour & Taxis, a centrally-located Brussels landmark that the fair relocated to last year in order to make it more accessible to the public, and more competitive since the arrival of the Brussels edition of the Independent art fair, which launched just a day before the 2016 edition of Art Brussels at the heart of the city, to great acclaim.

Last year also marked the departure of the fair’s artistic director since 2012, Katerina Gregos. No replacement has been appointed yet, but a press representative for the fair told artnet News that an external curator who will be responsible for a special project will be announced in early 2017.

In the meantime, the fair has appointed two new members to the selection committee, both of whom have curatorial backgrounds: Tania Doropoulos, artistic director at the gallery Timothy Taylor in London and New York, and Eva Birkenstock, director of the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen in Düsseldorf.
