Fine Art Fair Antica Brussels: Second Edition at Tour & Taxis

The Fine Art Fair Antica Brussels is making a return to dazzle art enthusiasts from April 18 to 21, 2024, at Tour & Taxis, Brussels. Following the success of its inaugural edition, this art fair is set to welcome over seventy exhibitors in an exceptional setting.

Over four days, sheds 1 and 2 at Tour & Taxis will be transformed into a space dedicated to art in all its forms: paintings, sculptures, jewelry, furniture, and collectibles will coexist in perfect harmony. This edition will highlight modern Belgian painting while also offering a prominent place to works from all over Europe.

Among the flagship works to be presented, we highlight the creations of Belgian Bram Bogart, an emblematic figure of expressionism and informal art, whose works are recognized worldwide and included in the collections of prestigious museums such as the Guggenheim in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The fair will also be an opportunity to discover unique pieces such as a 1900s bracelet presented by Galerie Cordeau, an exceptional Val Saint-Lambert vase at Het Ware Huis, or an inro in lacquer from the Kajikawa school.
