Hotel Bloom!
Rue Royale 250 – Brussels

Trajector Art Fair is an exciting new initiative by Centrifugal Projects and Hotel Bloom! coinciding and in collaboration with Art Brussels.

Trajector Art Fair follows on from Projector Art Fair that took place, to great critical and public approval, in Rotterdam in 2008.

Trajector’s focus is on the project spaces, artists’ initiatives and independent curatorial agencies that provide important platforms and experimentation grounds within the international arena and art commerce systems. In part a celebration and playful game with their role, Trajector realises its artistic mission as a hotel art fair in Brussels’ most recent boutique hotel.

Trajector Art Fair will transform Hotel Bloom! into a vibrant ’boutique hotel art fair’ with eighteen rooms and a wide range of conference rooms and public spaces providing a platform for international art spaces and curators to present some of the best emerging and established contemporary art to a Brussels audience.

Special Programmes
‘Taut- That Certain Tension Between Fashion & Art’ comprises of a substantial exhibition and thematic events such as panel discussions, lectures and presentations. Taut engages directly with some of the key issues of creativity at the intersections of art and fashion.

Curated by Ken Pratt & Laurent Dombrowicz – the former Joint Editors in Chiefs of Wound Magazine and respectively an independent art curator and fashion director- the exhibition aspect will juxtapose work by fashion creatives alongside that of contemporary artists to develop a discourse on some of the key issues uniting –and perhaps still separating- contemporary art and fashion practice. This will be complemented by a series of lectures, discussions and events that go deeper into examining some of the key issues at the core of fashion and art practice. The curators are particularly pleased that the Taut programme will premiere in Belgium with its very special histories of fashion and art, perhaps the world’s most ideal location to place the discussions raised by the project.

Exhibiting in Taut

Jemima Brown, Patricia Canino, Monica Chong, Jasmina Fekovic, Caron Geary, Phil Gibson, Vanalyne Green, Karin Hanssen, Heringa/Van Kalsbeek, Claire de Jong, Rui Leonardes, Marnix Kloof/Remote Viewer, Charlie Le Mindu, Kate Mayne, Minivegas, Alex Noble, René & Radka, Angie Reed, Tai Shani, Brigitte Stepputtis, Ari Versluis & Ellie Uyttenbroek, Martin C. de Waal, Jeanine Woollard and many more…

‘The Keith Moon Suites’ involves a number of site-specific works, screenings, installations and performances by invited artists whose work crosses into the world of pop or underground music (or vice versa) and reflects upon the clichés that surround hotels and rock music.

The Trajector Diesel Commission is a new path in brand talent support by Diesel Fragrance, offering an opportunity for an invited artist to be commissioned to produce a new work premiered at Trajector Art Fair. Trajector and Diesel are happy to announce that the invited artist for the commission this year is Angie Reed.
