Gerie Ravenstein 46
Moussem Nomadic Arts Centre has recently moved to the Galerie Ravenstein in Brussels. Our offices overlook the main atrium of this historical building where daily thousands of people pass through. With the new project Moussem Vitrine we use our new location to strenghten our visual arts program. A large office window has been transformed into an exhibition space that permits us to showcase visual artists towards the diverse urban audience passing in the Galerie. Every year we will invite a collaborator to propose 5 exciting new artists for a bi-monthly showcase of their work. For the inaugural program 2017-2018 visual artist Younes Baba-Ali will propose his selection of artists.
