Menart Fair Bruxelles

Monday, January 30, 2023
In a few days Menart Fair Brussels, D-4
Our first thought was for Brussels when we looked to the future. After the success of the two Paris editions, the influence of arts from MENA in Europe would depend on their visibility in a major capital.
Brussels came to us naturally, as Belgium is probably the European country with the largest concentration of art collectors!

Thank you to the Boghossian Foundation, a centre for art and dialogue between Eastern and Western cultures since 2010, for hosting the first Menart Fair in Brussels, in the precious setting of the Villa Empain.

Thank you to the galleries and the artists they represent for their trust, their investment and their renewed commitment to us, sometimes for many years, especially in Beirut and Paris. It is to them that we owe the great richness of this first meeting!
Brussels has a new feature: the scope of Menart Fair has been extended for the first time to include design from the MENA region, which has some surprises in store for you.

Art is an essential vehicle for peace, in all its forms. It is the key medium for perceiving and understanding the complexity of the MENA countries, appreciating their singularity, enriching ourselves with their sensibility, and confronting our respective perceptions. Art is our link.
