A future cultural hub.
This month Brussels welcomed an incredible new art venue: the Kanal – Centre Pompidou http://www.kanal.brussels/, located in the former 1930s Citroën Yser Garage on the banks of the Brussels-Charleroi canal.
The opening marks the first phase of an even more ambitious project, which will see this wonderful Art Deco structure transformed into a breathtaking 35,000 m2 space for contemporary and modern art and architecture by the end of 2022. Work will start on the transformation in Autumn 2019, but until then, this spectacular industrial cathedral is hosting a taster of what the space will become in its “raw” state, hosting a year of temporary art and architecture exhibitions, installations and brand new works from Brussels-based artists.
There will also be a full programme of performances, concerts and events in partnership with some of the city’s most prestigious cultural venues: Flagey, Botanique, Bozar and more.
