CENTRALE for contemporary art

Show more
Nestled in a former power station in the heart of Brussels, CENTRALE for contemporary art is the contemporary art centre of the City of Brussels. It develops a committed vision of art, beyond boundaries, and connected to the city and to society.

Each year it collaborates with confirmed and emerging artists from Brussels and the international scene to produce exhibitions and multidisciplinary projects housed in its various premises. CENTRALE | hall presents exhibitions where confirmed visual artists based in Brussels enter into dialogue with the artists of their choice, along with group exhibitions showcasing a variety of approaches. CENTRALE | box and CENTRALE | lab host emerging artists and assist them in developing their projects. Since 2021, CENTRALE | vitrine, at 13 rue Sainte-Catherine, showcases the projects of four artists chosen through an annual open call. Stemming from the visual arts, CENTRALE expands its programming with performances, concerts, art film screenings, meetings, debates, and much more. People, audiences, are at the heart of CENTRALE’s missions: everyone – art lover or neophyte, individually or in school groups, with associations or with the family – can discover a work of art or an activity that suits them, be it a guided tour, a workshop, or participation in a work in progress, etc. CENTRALE is ultimately a comprehensive cultural project, the project of a capital city, a project for everyone, a place where art meets life.
