Le Wiels Contemporary Art Center

A new and innovative contemporary art center, Le Wiels, has just opened its doors in one of the finest exponents of industrial modernist architecture in Brussels: the former brewery installations of the Wielemans Ceuppens company. The site was built in 1930 by Belgian architect Adrian Blomme and it's defiantly worth a visit.

The site was built in 1930 by Belgian architect Adrian Blomme and it’s defiantly worth a visit.

The renovation and restoration of the building is still ongoing but that probably makes it all the more interesting. Besides organizing exhibitions of some of the most important contemporary artists (the installation that appears in some of the pictures is the work of Yayoi Kusama), the center aims to become a meeting point for artists and the general public and offers a wide range of activities and workshops to that end.

Le Wiels is easily accessible by public transport. More information on how to get there, opening times and ongoing exhibitions on: http://www.wiels.org/site2/home.php
