About The Solo Project
All five floors will be occupied by the artists (all media in contemporary art will be on display: photography, painting, sculpture, installation, African contemporary art, objects, ….)
This art project follows a very independent and idiosyncratic course. Artists stands central – together with their respective galleries and organizations they have been invited by the five curators. The curators are: Francis Boeske and Twan Janssen, Charlotte Lidon, Tanya Rumpff, Caroline von Reden.
The complete list of participants will be presented at the end of February. The Solo Project is organized in accordance with all covid-19 restrictions that apply to the museums. Mrs. Delphine Houba, Alderman for Culture of the City of Brussels, will officially open the project on Wednesday, April 21st 2021 at 10 am.
It will undeniably be a very beautiful and interesting initiative that can still be organized despite these difficult times.
Please don t hesitate to get in touch with our team if you would be interested to get more information.
The fair is an initiative of Paul Kusseneers (Kusseneers Gallery in Brussels).
After nine editions in Basel, the first Belgian edition of The Solo Project takes place in the heart of Brussels in the beautiful Vanderborght building.
The architecture enables the interaction with art and guests and is entirely in tune with The Solo Project’s philosophy of transparency.
The show will make a serious attempt to focus the art gallery going public on this carefully selected group of artists, each presenting solo or collaborative projects.
This project is not an attempt to replicate already existing art fairs but rather a chance to enhance the contemporary art experience presenting a more in depth view of each artists work. It is the plan of The Solo Project to take a different approach, resembling more, a series of considered gallery type shows in well constructed spaces for each gallery, giving the works more ‘room to breath’, the artists more room to make a clear presentation and the visitors an environment in which the works can be considered as a body of work rather than as loan pieces. The selection committee consisting of international curators, ensures a high quality international selection.
