Located in the heart of the Belgium Quarter of Cologne Germany, the gallery site consists of more than 160qm of interior space, of which 70qm is used primarily for exhibition and performance purposes. Just 50 meters away from the main entrance of St. Michaels Church at Bruesseler Platz, the gallery space was the former studio of the Hamburg born painter, Egon Karl Nicolaus, who painted there from 1965 – 1988. The Belgium Quarter is now one of of Cologne´s most vibrant cultural, artistic and night life scenes.
It operates as a platform for both established artists as well as new talents of outstanding merit. From Main Stream to Outsider Art, we at Galerie am Brüsseler Platz welcome proposals from artists working in all mediums for upcoming group and solo shows. Our ongoing development builds upon the long history of art presentation in Cologne and its thriving gallery scene. Our program especially supports innovative artists whose ambitious work adds to the reputation of Cologne´s position in showcasing visual arts which offers visitors new ideas thus leading to cross-cultural enrichment.
Established as a multidisciplinary arts space, Galerie am Brüsseler Platz is dedicated to the presentation of contemporary artists and their work, to support our regional creative community and to provide opportunities for the discussion and exchange of ideas. The focus of our programming is to support emerging arts and artists, experimentation, innovation, and new projects from regional, national, and international artists. Exhibitions taking place at the gallery will be dedicated to presenting high quality paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editioned works.
While we currently only have one dedicated space for programming, we are expanding to partner with other venues in the Belgium Quarter as well as other off locations in Cologne for our programming and thus welcome suitable proposals for visual arts exhibitions, music, theatre, film, or other events. We promise to closely review every proposal submitted. We look forward to welcoming you.
With Galerie am Brüsseler Platz, anything can happen.
