Do you think traditional art venues could benefit a few lessons from urban artists? Great, we asked passionate individuals and groups of Brussels to take over our museums so just chill & enjoy this lil’ urban trail we’ve put together for you.
Start at the Jewish Museum, there’s a mysterious “dark box” to explore and live painting to witness by street art collective Farm Prod! Middle Eastern music gets you in the groove to understand each of the +180 nationalities of Brussels with the “Brussels, a safe haven?” exhibition.
A few blocks away at the Belvue Museum, VK Concerts has put together a 100% women-led scene bringing together Belgian hip hop, dance hall and soul! Among other things, don’t miss an opportunity to make a sculpture of your own body using adhesive tape and paper: sounds promising to us!
We’re taking you further to Train World with tram 92 (enjoy, it’s free). At the heart of the amazing scenography of the venue, artists are offering various workshops including graffiti, serigraphy and film. Young gymnasts are providing the “pow” with daring acrobatics amidst the beautiful vintage trains.
Now let’s go back to the centre and head to the MIMA with our red shuttle to face Akay & Olabo’s challenging exhibition recalling their personal forbidden explorations of abandoned locations. It’s a ‘Wonderland’ where the two Swedish artists recreated a urban adventure for you to explore.
Don’t say this urbex won’t keep you awake until the afterparty hits until the small hours of the morning !
