Talent watch: The HISK Affair at Gosset site
Opens Thursday, 24 June, 18-22h00 Brussels
Reputed Ghent art school HISK is coming to the Belgian capital, where it inaugurated a satellite art space in a former factory in Molenbeek last year. Playfully questioning the long-standing art fair model that has experienced quite some troubles during the ongoing pandemic, the 23 current HISK students have opted to present their midterm exhibition against the backdrop of an art fair scenography. Expect booths of various sizes, colored carpets, a screening room, a performance stage, a champagne bar, and of course a glimpse into the future of the art world with works by Elisa Pinto, Juan Pablo Plazas, and many others.
Summer vibes: Recyclart holidays

Summer vibes: See U Festival
Until 19 September Brussels
This summer, options to catch some sunrays while getting a dose of culture as well as refreshing drinks are galore. Besides the above-mentioned Recyclart, there is also See U for example, a project that has managed to transform the former military barracks in Etterbeek into a gigantic playground. Every week from Tuesday to Sunday there’s a multitude of activities to choose from: dance classes, yoga, concerts, exhibitions, movie screenings, kids workshops, … or you can just drop by to hang out on the wooden velodrome and enjoy an ice-cold beer.
