PhotoBrussels Festival, organised by Hangar, is a major annual meeting devoted to photography, based on a meaningful theme.
A selection of international photographers and emerging young artists shows viewers what contemporary photography has to say about our time, its struggles, trends and aspirations. Between 100 and 200 photographies, by 15-20 different artists, are exhibited in the Hangar art center, located in Châtelain, a cosmopolitan cultural district in the heart of Brussels.
PhotoBrussels Festival also serves as an exchange platform to spark and confront ideas. The exhibit is designed on the scale of a museum, and it provides an opportunity to organise lectures, workshops and guided tours where some major players (photographers, writers, art schools) are invited to attend.
This year again, an entire photographic tour "Parcours PBF" will be offered to public. The objective of PhotoBrussels Festival is to radiate throughout Brussels and then nationally and internationally, so the festival welcomes the participation of galleries and cultural centres!
PhotoBrussels Festival is open to the public for one month.
After "Landscape" (2016), "Portrait" (2017) and “City” (2018), PBF04 will focus on a theme “Still Life”. Whether traditional or revisited, whether minimalist, experimental, raw or humorous, the fact remains that this theme inspires, more than ever, the photographic creation!
