According to the Bruthaus philosophy, contemporary art must possess contemporary relevance, references to socio-societal themes and preferably fulfil a broader role..
Bruthaus Gallery organises around five exhibition events a year, most of which are solo exhibitions. These exhibitions are a moment for art collectors, curators, highly interested parties and artists to meet. At these Meeting-Points the exhibiton is disected from three perspectives: its art historical positioning (by an art critic), the gallerist's vision and by the artist.
In addition to our gallery activities, each year we offer an artist the opportunity to create a grand contextual installation in the former Claessens Canvas factory buildings located next to Bruthaus Gallery, as part of a co-production with Be-Part (West Flanders Platform for Contemporary Art).
From September 2016, the gallery will expand to provide an additional exhibition space covering approximately 200 square metres. Thus Bruthaus Gallery will increase its activities and introduce a double programme.
Joris Van der Borght and Nancy De Vos founded Bruthaus Gallery in September 2012. Van der Borght has been president of Croxhapox vzw since 2005.
