20 April-13 Aug. Large-scale exhibition marking the 10th anniversary of Wiels - Center for Contemporary Art which has presented more than 65 shows since it was founded in the former Wielemans brewery site in 2007. Despite not having the official status of a museum, the art institution is generally referred to in Brussels as "the Wiels museum."
Exhibition organisers have taken this widespread recognition, along with the expectation it carries, to put forward a "blueprint for a museum of contemporary art for the capital of Europe", examining the challenges faced by modern-day museums along with the inspiration they generate.
The exhibition features works by 45 contemporary and historical artists, and is on display at the Wiels' newly-refurbished Blomme building as well as in two adjacent buildings.
