About the Art Brussels contemporary art fair taking place from 28 April to 1 May in Brussels.

Art Brussels, one of the largest contemporary art fairs in Europe, offers fascinating (re)discoveries in 34 solo exhibitions. Needless to say, this year's fair, which has been cancelled two years in a row, is a real treat for collectors with its countless works of art for sale! Of the 156 art galleries present, 64% came from abroad. And within an event that strives to avoid art market trends in favour of "studied approaches, works that tell a story or have an intimate or societal dimension that interacts with the viewer", as its general manager Anne Vierstraete explains, the "Discovery" section devoted to emerging artists is inevitably one of the most magnetic. This year, the sculptures made of toothpicks by the young South African artist Chris Soal are particularly appreciated, as is the multidisciplinary work of the Brazilian artist Elen Braga, which is in dialogue with the paintings of Julien Saudubray, born in Paris and living in Brussels. But it is in the 'Rediscovery' section that the delicate applied fabrics of Japanese artist Ayayko Miyawaki (1905-1995) are fascinatingly displayed, while the 'Solo' section highlights the paintings of Viennese actionist Hermann Nietsch and Nathalie Du Pasquier.
