For each new exhibition, together with the artists, the team at Xavier Hufkens Gallery develops an individual vision for space and presentation. The necessary scope is created by the distinctive building annex – and a lighting system that unites flexibility with highest quality of light.
Xavier Hufkens has been dealing in contemporary art for over three decades, and today his gallery is one of the major names on the scene, operates from several locations in Brussels and represents international artists such as Antony Gormley and Tracey Emin. Robbrecht en Daem Architects from Ghent have now extended the historic town house headquarters by creating a striking extension of concrete and glass. With exhibition spaces on five levels, it creates flowing transitions from old to new building. This establishes a wide variety of spatial situations with varying amounts of daylight, thus providing a versatile background for up to six temporary exhibitions per year.
