Organized annually without fail since 2008, the Brussels Gallery Weekend stands as the second-oldest event of its kind, with the Gallery Weekend in Berlin holding the first position.

From its beginning, the BGW has aimed to showcase the vibrant and diverse contemporary art scene in Brussels where many of the participating galleries have established a strong presence within the artistic landscape. Moreover, this year marks some significant milestones: Albert Baronian gallery will be celebrating its 50th anniversary, Michel Rein's Brussels space its 10th and Galerie Nathalie Obadia has just celebrated its 15th birthday earlier this year.

With its esteemed institutions and a range of private initiatives, including foundations, artist-run spaces, and established galleries, Brussels' art scene has continuously strengthened its position on the international stage in recent years. The city offers a fertile ground for artistic expression and has become a hub where creativity flourishes. As a result, alongside many long-standing galleries, Brussels welcomes new spaces each year.
