5 new galleries to look out for at Affordable Art Fair Brussels 2021
Affordable Art Fair Brussels (22 – 26 September 2021, Tour&Taxis) is finally back after two and a half years and we are pleased to say that more than 70 galleries will be welcoming you to this 12th edition. Among them, a handful of new exhibitors who will be joining the Brussels fair for the first time. We have picked 5 new galleries with very unique and distinct focuses.
Friday 3 September, 2021
Post Modern Collection (NL)
Founded by curator Woes van Haaften, Post Modern Collection was created with the goal of giving everyone the opportunity to start their art collection with a unique artwork, even on a small budget. This stand will be filled with small-scale sculptures, drawings and paintings by emerging, as well as established artists – all created exclusively for the gallery. We love that the ‘petite’ format often challenges artists to adjust their practice and the revenues of sales are directly reinvested into artistic development. Here, you’ll be able to take a closer look at artworks by Roosje van Donselaar, Sander Wassink, Maarten Bel, Diego Faivre among others.
Galerie Flox (DE)
With Galerie Flox, owner Karl Dominick and the director Hellfried Christoph, aim to present contemporary art in urban and rural areas. This is why they decided to open their galleries in Dresden and Kirschau, Germany where the gallery focuses on presenting realistic paintings, graphics, sculptures, objects and installations. Most of their artists originate from art academies in Leipzig, Halle and Dresden and at their stand you’ll be able to admire, among others, sculptures by Marc Swysen, the humorous works of Sandro Porcu and Hyun Young Lee’s Chinese ink drawings.
Pop My Duke (LU)
This Luxembourg-based gallery focuses on colourful urban, pop and optical illusion art made by a selection of international artists and was founded by passionate art collector, Patrick Denny. Pop My Duke presents unique pieces as well as editions and will be exhibiting works by a big selection of artists such as street artist M. Chat and PIMAX, graffiti artist Psyckoze Nolimit and mixed media artist Koo Seunghwui.
Play it Art (BE)
Are you an art and a football lover? Play it Art’s goal is to merge these two worlds, appearing to be so different, but actually so close. According to them: “Football and art are worldwide spread. Played at the highest level, football is a real art, asking creativity and inspiration.” Play it Art focuses on working with artists who produce exclusive football related artworks for them. Oli-B, Jessica Hilltout, GR170, Atelier Louves are among some artists whose works you’ll find at their stand.
Ruth Gallery (LU)
Joining the fair from Luxembourg, Ruth Gallery represents African contemporary artists and artists from the African diaspora. The motivation of the gallery owner, Lova Ruth Cohen-Sizyandji, is to promote art that reflects current developments in society and contemporary urban realities. Make sure to head over Ruth Gallery’s stand to take a look at the colourful paintings of the Cameroonian artists Emmanuel Aziseh and Emile Youmbi.
