Exclusive: Here’s the Full Exhibitor List for Independent Brussels 2017
See who will be participating at the second edition of the fair.
Independent Brussels has announced its 2017 exhibitor list, revealing a total of 65 galleries—one more than last year—of which 25 are newcomers.
This will be the second edition of the fair—directed by Laura Mitterrand—the European branch of the longer-running Independent New York, founded in 2010.
It will return to the Vanderborght Building in central Brussels from April 19-23, 2017, coinciding again with competitor Art Brussels, which runs from April 21-23.
In total, 30 cities from 17 countries will be represented, including Belgium, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UAE, and the US.
In terms of big names, David Zwirner (New York/London) makes a triumphant return, as does the New York and Brussels-based Gladstone Gallery.
Significant newcomers include Sprüth Magers from Berlin, London, and Los Angeles; and Capitain Petzel from Berlin.
Two exhibitors hail from Latin America: new addition Mendes Wood DM, based in São Paulo, Brussels, Berlin, and New York; and returning gallery Travesía Cuatro, based in Guadalajara (Mexico) and Madrid.
Meanwhile—in keeping with Independent’s 30 percent rotation rate of participants for each edition—Almine Rech (Paris, Brussels, New York, and London), which gave its booth to the curatorial platform Le Salon last year, Gavin Brown’s Enterprise (New York), Galerie Micheline Szwajcer (Brussels), and Galerie Meyer Kainer (Vienna) are absent from this year’s list.
Of artnet’s top ten booths of 2016, seven galleries will return: the aforementioned Zwirner, Office Baroque (Brussels), Gregor Staiger (Zürich), Galerie Jocelyn Wolff (Paris), Mary Mary (Glasgow), GB Agency (Paris), and Elizabeth Dee (New York) and Peres Projects (Berlin), which shared a booth.
Independent New York, founded by dealers Elizabeth Dee and Darren Flook, is now in its eighth year, with a rotating network of participants comprising more than 200 international galleries.
Participation in both fairs is strictly by invitation.
