Rue saint-georges, 6
Xavier Hufkens is one of the most influential galleries for contemporary art in Europe. Since its opening in 1987, the gallery has represented (then emerging) artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres and British sculptor Anthony Gormley. Today, the gallery represents more than forty leading artists, from Louise Bourgeois to Thomas Houseago, Hans Op de Beeck and Christopher Wool. The gallery, which is close to Avenue Louise, has just been extended and magnificently transformed by architects Robbrecht & Daems. They have added an impressive, resolutely contemporary volume to the old historic mansion, which is worth a visit in itself. Xavier Hufkens has consolidated its pivotal position and is more than ever a must-see for any contemporary art lover visiting the capital.
