BOZAR – PALAIS DES BEAUX ARTS
The Palais des Beaux-Arts is Belgium’s leading house of the Arts and a European cultural hub. This is Victor Horta’s masterpiece, where all arts and audiences come together.
THE BOZAR EXPERIENCE
With more than a million visitors a year, the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Centre for Fine Arts) is one of the centres of attraction of Brussels’ Mont des Arts. Standing between Place Royale and Gare Centrale, it’s the inspired link, dreamed up by Victor Horta in 1928, between the upper and lower parts of the city. It also forms the link among the different forms of fine arts, as its name indicates. Its multi-disciplinary approach and productions of the highest standard are its strength and unique characteristic at the heart of the cultural epicentre of Brussels. Judge for yourself: 250 concerts a year that are every bit as good as the programmes of the most prestigious halls; and big international exhibitions, classical and contemporary.
BOZAR is a cultural hub that imports the greatest artists to the heart of the capital of Europe and exports its own productions to places as far away as China! Cinema, theatre, dance, literature, architecture and arts education are all part of this exciting activity, further enriched by some 250 partners a year, such as the brand new CINEMATEK and its collection of foreign films – the most well-stocked in the world. The very trendy BOZAR SHOP opens onto the street and, as from 10 December 2010, there’s a restaurant run by chef David Martin, the star of Brussels gastronomy. With a range of tailor-made cultural options, the Centre for Fine Arts stands out as a complete experience, opening onto Mont des Arts, the city and the world.
That’s the BOZAR EXPERIENCE!
