In 2010, Yia Art Fair was created in Paris. It stands for Yesterday is Aujourd’hui in other words, “Yesterday is today”. Once again it confirms to be a must in Contemporary Art like its name suggests. It consists of 5 exhibitions 4 of which are in Europe: Maastricht, Brussels, Basle, Paris, and one in New York.
This year, Paris and Brussels appear to be more connected than ever thanks to Contemporary Art week held in the Belgian capital. The city is undoubtedly a landmark for both international politics and art interacting in a fascinating way .
Brussels is simultaneously a French community and a Flemish one in Belgium. This feature conveys a sense of internationality to anything concerning communication and expression in many fields. Furthermore, if we consider that Brussels has an area whose worth is more than 1,8 million inhabitants, it is easy to understand the importance this city has on a European level and beyond.
So, it is no coincidence that 2017 Yia Art Fair # 09 is held in Brussels specifically at Square Brussels Meeting Centre in the heart of the city from April 20th -23rd. This venue is a unique location where conferences, workshops, seminars, exhibitions and many more events are held every year.
