This year marks the third edition of the much awaited Brussels I Love You Contemporary Art Walk —better known for its BILY acronym. Until February 10, the Belgian capital is turned a cartographic treasure trove of galleries, cultural organisations, artist residencies and exhibition spaces.

The art track has one main purpose: to nudge the visitor to see Brussels’ neighbourhoods under an artistic magnifying glass.

If you’re participating in the walk, here are the toy key things to keep in mind.

Want to join a guided tour for the track? Head this Sunday, February 10 to La Patinoire Royale (15 rue Veydt) and sign up for one of the four tours available, at 14.00, 15.00, 16.00 and 17.00. Do keep in mind that, albeit free, a reservation is needed —you can send an e-mail to info@arkadia.be to join one of the guided walks.

Here is the list of the participating venues. Throughout BILY 2018, entrance to these locations is free. And may we suggest a visit to TLmag’s sister gallery, Spazio Nobile? Be sure to check out the opening of Season VII – Die Werkstatt, starting on February 8.
