One question that comes often in your emails is “if you only have to chose 5 exhibitions to see this month in Brussels or in London, which one would it be?”.  I have tendency to forget that not everyone has the time or the opportunity to see plenty of exhibitions every week. That is why I always tried to give you as much options as possible, but it’s true that sometimes you just want to know what is completely worthy of your time and go straight to the point.

The thing is, art like everything else is subjective and what I will like is not especially what you would go for, even though I believe that it’s always good to be confront to artworks you are not especially fond of, for the experience that can be surprising sometimes.

So here are five exhibitions to go see in Brussels this month, as usual feel free to add your own recommendations in the comment section.

Susan Hiller “Aspects of the Self 1972-1985” at MOTinternational

  1. Cool je me demandais justement quoi voir. On m’a aussi parlé du show balls ans glory chez Rodolphe Janssens qui apparemment est bien. Des échos ?

  2. I’m coming to brussels to visit my brother who studies there next weekend so will definitely have a look at what your recommend. Best, Martha

  3. Top tour CA, j’ai vu Delta chez Alice et beaucoup aimer. J’ai hâte de voir Buren mais le prix fait quand même mal. Bon weekend

    1. Coucou Louis. Oui ce n’est pas donné mais si tu as moins de 26 ans l’entrée est un 1 euro le mercredi si je me souviens bien donc ça peut être une alternative intéressante.

  4. L’expo à Almine Rech est très belle. Je recommande aussi de passé voir le prix Van de Velde à Bozar sur une note plus design. Bon week-end.

    1. Figure toi que j’avais pensé ajouter le prix Van De Velde également car je sais que beaucoup de mes lecteurs ont un faible pour le design 😉 Merci pour ton partage.

    1. Oui un must! J’en parle dans un de mes derniers poste sur Bruxelles. Il y a beaucoup d’enthousiasme autour de ce magnifique lieu et j’en suis ravie. Bonne semaine Simon.

  5. Your blog is really useful, would be cool if you could let us know about Art in other cities maybe? Also I love your Instagram account, beautiful stuffs. Greetings from Scotland.
