Application deadline: Thursday 1 March 2018
Art on Paper is open to all professional contemporary art galleries and project spaces, which do not specifically need to be only focussing on drawing. We aim for a healthy mix of international and local galleries. We accept applications from galleries and project spaces presenting works of one artist only, focusing on their drawing practice (in a broader sense, including other mediums, questioning drawing and its definition, or referring to the line) as well as works using paper as a medium.
In just a few steps, complete your application for the 4th edition of Art on Paper, the international contemporary drawing fair, which takes place from 5 until 9 September 2018 at BOZAR in Brussels.

This year, the show takes place in the prestigious Ravenstein Circuit of the Centre for Fine Arts:
– 40 stands available according to a detailed and flexible rate schedule
