The Centre for Contemporary Art of the City of Brussels is turning over a new leaf!

Since its creation in 2006, the Centrale électrique - Centre for Contemporary Art's mission was to raise public awareness of contemporary artistic creations, while remaining a venue that is open to the world, Europe, the city and the neighbourhood.

The change

In 2012 the Centrale électrique began a new phase of its history and abandoned its old name to become: CENTRALE for Contemporary Art. The CENTRALE for Contemporary Art has positioned itself as the major centre for contemporary art in Brussels.

This creative laboratory aims to get closer to Brussels' population in all its diverse forms. The CENTRALE hopes to deploy a Brussels identity through a calendar of contemporary art events that present a spirit of decompartmentalisation, of reflection and of support for contemporary creation.
