Asian Art in Brussels

Dear Friends,

On the 12th of June, “CULTURES, the world arts fair” throws open the doors to about 50 exhibiting galleries at the Sablon in Brussels. The 3 associations AAB (Asian Art), BAAF (Ancient Art) and BRUNEAF (Tribal Art) joined forces again. Our aim is to build opportunities for both the participants and the visitors of the fair. AAB is organizing a lecture on Thai Silver and Nielloware, by Paul Bromberg (Friday, 14th of June), who for the occasion will introduce his new book on the subject. The lecture will be filmed and will be available online for those who will not be able to attend, and for those who still want to share this moment.

With a wide variety of art objects from diverse cultures we are also hoping to entice a younger generation of art collectors. Note that a large part of exhibited items would fit in modernist / contemporary interior design. The best of these artworks will be recorded in our catalogue.

The collaboration with BAAF & BRUNEAF has produced an extensive campaign of communication in all major art magazines. We were rewarded by enthusiastic response and this initial success has been for us a great motivation to prepare the 2019 edition.

CULTURES brings together many nationalities from all over the world…something to fight for. We hope that the visitors will enjoy this fantastic week of art, culture and events, which is an opportunity to acquire one or more selected artworks that have passed through the hands of our vetting committee, who along with Art Loss Register, have assured the impeccable quality of the exhibits.

We hope to see you soon.
