Dansaert Brut + auction
This event has already passed
From 18 April to 17 May 2018 in the boutiques of the Dansaert quarter.
While the Art Brussels art fair is starting next week, the traders' association of the Dansaert quarter organizes an 'art brut' (outsider art) trail in around thirty shops. Outsider art is a collection of art productions that escape cultural and aesthetic norms. The traders of the Dansaert district want to put this art movement in the spotlight during Dansaert Brut. For a month, 35 boutiques exhibit works of art made by people with a mental disability. At the origin of these works are artists from the Atelier Art Nivo (Cultural Centre of Strombeek) and from the Le 8ème Jour non-profit organization (Brussels).
Auction at the MAD
The Dansaert Brut trail will be closed on Thursday 17 May (at 7 pm) with an auction at the MAD (Centre for Fashion and Design). The proceeds go entirely to the Le 8ème Jour non-profit organization and the Strombeek Cultural Centre.
The auction is free and open to everyone. The starting price per work of art is 100 euros.
Free shuttle service between Art Brussels and Dansaert
During Art Brussels, on 19, 20 and 21 April, free shuttle buses will take visitors to Tour & Taxis and the Dansaert district, between 11 am and 6:30 pm. The stops are located at the exit of the art fair and in front of the MAD building.
