Vanhaerents Art Collection
CONTEMPORARY ART in Brussels
Brussels is home to the Vanhaerents Art Collection: an astounding private collection of contemporary art that rivals some of the biggest international museums.
The second major exhibition by the Vanhaerents Art Collection opened in Brussels at the end of April 2012, instantly receiving the praise of visitors from near and far. Entitled “Sympathy for the Devil”, the exhibition presents 50 works from 34 international contemporary artists – all of them linked in one way or another to the controversial ideas in the Rolling Stones’ song of the same name. It will run until 30th November 2013.
The exhibits come from the Vanhaerents Art Collection, an exciting gallery of contemporary work assembled by private Belgian collector Walter Vanhaerents. The collection contains works from the 1970s until today, offering a mix of established artists – including Andy Warhol and Bruce Nauman – and emerging young talent from around the world.
Available for events
Since 2007 the collection is housed in a renovated 3500m² industrial building in the Dansaert district, not far from the Brussels Stock Exchange in the city centre.
The venue offers a unique opportunity to experience contemporary art in the company of friends or colleagues. It is ideal for small intimate get-togethers or larger events, either in the gallery itself (capacity up to 250 persons) or on the ground floor (capacity 50 persons) with a guided tour of the exhibition as an add-on. The building has an elevator, cloakroom, technical equipment and car parking facilities. Full information and renting details from Valerie Verhack: firstname.lastname@example.org
For visits, guided tours for groups can be organized from Tuesday to Saturday by reservation; individual visits take place every first Saturday of the month from 14h00 to 17h00.
