Collectible is a pioneering fair exclusively dedicated to contemporary collectible design, gathering unique pieces and limited editions of 21st century. It will happen from 7-11 March 2018 in the former Vanderborght Building in Brussels. This extraordinary building was commissionned by the Vanderborght Brothers and built up in the 1930s. It opened in 1935 as a furniture department store. After several decades the building was acquired by Dexia to house its art collection. It has already hosted Independent Art Fair, the KunstenFestivaldesArts during Brussels European Capital of Culture in 2000 and has welcome several cultural events in the past few years. The City of Brussels owns the Vanderborght building since 2012.
COLLECTIBLE is a fair with global ambition which operates as a European convergence point bringing together the finest international galleries and design networks. A driven and highly skilled team, an internationally renowned selection committee and a well thought-out location guarantee a new approach, breaking the mould of traditional fair formats. The atmosphere and setup will be more similar to an exhibition than typical fairs. The architecture of the Vanderborght building is perfectly suited to hosting Collectible and allows the visitor to naturally navigate the pathway.
Collectible is an idea of Clélie Debehault and Liv Vaisberg, both active in the art and design sector for more than 10 years.
Clélie Debehault is an art and design consultant based both in Paris and in Brussels. Her experience includes working in the primary and the secondary art market as former director of Vedovi and associate director of Daniel Templon. She currently advises art and design companies – brands, online platforms, galleries, architects and designers – with the national and international development of their activities.
Liv Vaisberg is an international art director based in Antwerp. She is known for her strong art fair experience and her paradigm-shifting ideas which she brings to Collectible. She is the initiator of the critical Brussels based art fair Poppositions, the former co-director of the hip New York born fair Independent Brussels and founder of Complex, personalised art and design tours for Brussels.
A strong selection committee is supporting COLLECTIBLE:

Rue de l’Ecuyer 50,
Brussels Design Market was founded 15 years ago. Initially it was simply a flea market exclusively devoted to productions from the 50s to the early 80s. Today, Brussels Design Market is considered to be one of the best events in Europe dedicated to vintage design of the 20th century. Twice a year, in March and in September, Brussels Design Market welcomes 100 exhibitors and over 7.000 visitors in an exceptional and very famous location: Sheds 3 and 4 of Tour & Taxis – home to the largest Belgian cultural events, shows and fairs.
ART BRUSSELS: CONTEMPORARY SINCE 1968
Though it retains its youthful profile as a discovery fair, Art Brussels is one of Europe’s oldest and most established fairs, celebrating in April 2018 its 50th anniversary. Since its inception, Art Brussels has evolved into a must-see international contemporary art fair, and one of the top European art fairs.
For the second time, Art Brussels will take place in the beautiful Tour & Taxis landmark building, a turn of the 20th century customs house, situated in Brussels’ vibrant inner-city area and a location offering ideal viewing conditions for art. Collector attendance is strong with visitors notably from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Scandinavia, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom as well as from countries further afield such as Australia, Turkey and the USA.
FROM DISCOVERY TO REDISCOVERY
As Belgium’s leading fair, Art Brussels continues to build on its profile and track record as one of “Europe’s foremost discovery fairs”, as stated in the New York Times. Art Brussels brings something different to the international art fair practices by privileging solid artistic content and profiling surprising artistic practices which one does not see at other art fairs. At the same time, the fair welcomes a large number of important international established galleries, many of which presenting outstanding booths in the PRIME section and some museum-quality presentations in the REDISCOVERY section. Together with the DISCOVERY section, this mix provides the necessary equilibrium a fair needs between the young and upcoming and the renowned and recognised.”
In this respect, 145 galleries are encouraged to play with the element of surprise by presenting either new work or undervalued historical work in the following sections:
- DISCOVERY, where the focus is on young, emerging and lesser-known artists showing recent works (2014-2017).
- PRIME, focusing on established artists from modern to contemporary.
- REDISCOVERY, dedicated to art from 1917 to 1987, presenting living or deceased artists who are under-recognised, underestimated or forgotten.
- Moreover, Art Brussels has always emphasized SOLO presentations thus offering the opportunity to get a more in-depth approach of the work of an artist.
On top of the gallery proposals, Art Brussels brings an exclusive artistic project, a discursive programme of debates, talks, etc. and pays attention to bringing the best of Belgian cuisine by JML, royal warrant holder of the Court of Belgium.
Each year, on the occasion of the not-to-be-missed Art Brussels rendezvous around the 20th of April, the European capital becomes a focal point for art lovers. Art Brussels thus represents a unique opportunity to explore the artistic richness of Brussels, which is becoming home to ever more artists, galleries and curators from all over the world.
