Art on Paper: The Brussels Contemporary Drawing Fair at BOZAR

New edition, new scale, new space, new side projects! 

Thursday, August 16, 2018 — The Brussels fair for contemporary drawing Art on Paper will be held for the fourth time in BOZAR this year, from 6 to 9 September 2018. The big principle of the event has remained unchanged since the beginning in 2015: one stand, one gallery, one artist. Thus, for 5 days, 50 Belgian and international galleries are investing BOZAR exhibition spaces to offer, in the heart of Brussels, 50 SOLO SHOWS from established and emerging artists: the best of contemporary drawing. Building on the success of its latest editions, Art on Paper is setting itself up this year in the prestigious "Ravenstein Circuit", always in collaboration with BOZAR, and has new parallel projects to reflect the most current creation and the most experimental practices in terms of drawing.

New this year is that there will be a seperate room for young talent. The Project Space will present 6 young artists but also the 6 structures presenting them: these will be very young galleries (under 2 years of existence) or "non-profit spaces" or "artist-run spaces" that make contemporary creation. This space will be dedicated to the rubbing of the eye and drawing, contrasting them.

Michel Culot, founder of the "Art on Paper in collaboration with BOZAR" formula appreciates for this new edition to have left the basement to go out in the open air and be integrated into the official circuit. The show has opened up more to foreign gallery owners. It brings together today, around Brussels’ gallerists, a balance between gallerists of the north and the south of the country.

"Growing an event of this quality in Brussels is an asset for the image of the City and the Region". The Belgian scene is very active and the positioning of Art on Paper on the international scene is a driving force for the entire contemporary art sector: "drawing is one of the bubbling niches of contemporary art and we are considered as one of the major fairs in the world devoted to drawing ". This greatly benefits Brussels, the capital of Europe, as well as all the stakeholders involved in this unique event by proposing solo shows, just solo shows!
— Michel Culot, founder

The 50 solo shows have been painstakingly selected from a hundred entries around the world. After the development of Japan and Korea last year, this year the doors opened to Latin America with the participation of exhibitors from Mexico, Argentina and Colombia.
