Walking tour

Art along the canal

Brussels is a city where contemporary art occupies an important place, with the presence of important private collections, countless galleries and numerous fairs. The art world gradually moved out of the residential neighbourhoods in the south-east of the city towards the canal where vast spaces were available. While the former Citroën garage, an iconic building situated on the bank of the canal, was converted into a centre of contemporary art by the Region, numerous other initiatives have been developed in recent years including Kanal 20, Argos, the Vanhaerents collection, MIMA, etc. You will learn about them all during this walking tour.

In French only.

In cooperation with Atelier de Recherche et d’Action Urbaines (ARAU).
