Drawing has returned to the forefront of contemporary art and its value, as both a practice and a medium, is widely recognised. Art on Paper is designed to showcase the best in contemporary drawing through a curated mix of established and emerging galleries.
Drawing is rooted in graphic expression. It plays a significant role in international art, whether it’s featured in galleries, exhibitions, biennials and specialised fairs like Art on Paper, or advanced as an art form through the many institutions and individuals who now place drawing at the heart of their collections. While in the past, drawing was confined to an auxiliary, supporting role in artistic practice, today it holds its own in the contemporary art world.
Art on Paper seeks to showcase the broad range of approaches and perspectives that contemporary drawing offers. Some artists dedicate the entirety of their work to drawing, while others connect with it only occasionally. Works in drawing can be figurative, abstract, monumental or minimalist, and even three-dimensional, performance-based, or narrative… In fact, contemporary drawing offers constantly renewed possibilities of both composition and method that contribute to its richness and relevance.
Over the five days of the fair, 40 contemporary art galleries from Belgium and around the world come together at the BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. Each gallery displays a solo show featuring an established or emerging artist whose focus is on drawing.
The fair benefits from an independent selection committee of art professionals and collectors. Together, the committee’s artistic direction draws a line which connects all of the work appearing at the fair, to show drawing at its most innovative, challenging and alive.

The Biennale Interieur npo is a non-profit organisation acting in the field of design, product development and innovation. In 1967, the founder members of the Biennale Interieur npo in Kortrijk (Belgium) were excited by the impossible. One of their aims was to put contemporary design for the home and interior innovations on display for a broad general public and not only for professionals, as was the case with most other fairs. They dreamed of creating a space and an atmosphere that did not obey the laws of traditional lay-out and stage design. The uniqueness of the concept and the increase in international outreach, turnover, number of visitors, number of exhibitors and world-renowned design brands, press articles etc., show that there was a true need for an innovative model for design as a cultural as well as a commercial entity.
The making of a biennale
The ideals that lay behind the establishment of the Biennale Interieur npo in 1967 were closely related to the motives and ideals behind the student and worker rebellions of the late sixties in France, then in Europe and the US. Unlike other furniture shows, which offered a mixture of old, new, kitsch and design, the organisation wanted its Biennale only to promote the latest contemporary forms and creativity in interior design. Moreover, the initiators had much more in mind than pure aesthetics or commercial considerations. The ultimate goal was to encourage a broad public debate, which might lead to the design discipline contributing towards a better world. Unlike other trade fair organisers, the Biennale Interieur immediately adopted the status of a non-profit institution. Interieur took place for the first time in 1968 and will celebrate its 25th ‘silver’ Biennale from 14 to 23 October 2016.
