Brafa Art Fair, a top destination for antique dealers in Brussels

Brussels will celebrate all forms of art during Brafa, the number-one destination for antique galleries in the Belgian capital.

From 26 January to 3 February 2019, Brafa’s 64th edition will feature 133 Belgian and international galleries at Tour & Taxis. Featured guests include Gilbert & George, two artists specialised in eccentric and surrealist pieces. This year will also mark the 100-year-anniversary of the Belgian Royal Chamber of Antiques and Art Dealers.

Antique dealers descend on Brafa

Collectors will flock to art dealers’ booths, which will feature the rarest, most beautiful, and most valuable pieces from their inventory. Visitors will have the chance to meet a wide variety of interesting people in this vast temporary museum as they take in an overview of human history that includes everything from archaeological finds to modern items. Works from a range of periods, styles, and continents pay tribute to artistic creation in all its forms.
