In its second edition this year, the Brussels Drawing Fair – which opens its doors next Thursday 28th April at the city’s White Hotel – has somewhat come-of-age, with its program now open to photography too and an extra day added to the weekend-long festivities. The perfect place to sharpen your eye, beef up your pencilled knowledge and get a foot on the collecting ladder, the BDF thrives on diversity (over 40 galleries from Belgium, France, Germany and Holland are present with more than a hundred artists), intimacy (each one of the hotel’s rooms is converted into a weekend-long gallery space) and accessibility (exhibiting artists can usually be found lounging about the hotel). The weekend of the 29th is shaping up to be quite a busy one already – what with Art Brussels (and it’s official party), Paul McCarthy’s solo show, the Trajector Art Fair and many other going ons – but this is one little fair that any self-respecting art-lover absolutely shouldn’t miss.
