Art Brussels 2010 Breaks All Records!

BRUSSELS.- The 28th edition of Art Brussels has turned out to be an unprecedented success. Sales were clearly up for the young section as well as for the new and returning key galleries. Besides the local collectors, impressive numbers of foreign collectors made their way to Brussels. Unfortunately, the Icelandic volcano eruption made it impossible for –only – 7 galleries to be present at the fair. Despite cancellations from overseas guests, local and international collectors, curators and professionals attended en masse. On the curator front, many faces were recognised wandering through the fair. Amongst them museum directors, independent curators and others professionals; Kris Dercon from Haus der Kunst-Munich, Peter Dorochenko-curator, Marc-Olivier Wahler-Director Palais de Tokyo, Ziba de Weck-Parasol unit Foundation London, Martin Hatebur-President of the Kunsthalle Basel, Florence Parot-Centre Pompidou, Chantal
