Ocula City Guide Brussels Without a central art district, Brussels plays host to a range of independent and alternative art spaces, and some outstanding galleries. The discordant politics of the city has cultivated an anti-authoritarian sense of artistic freedom drawing a fresh wave of migrant artists to the city in recent years. Brussels' low-key anarchism and strong vision stands in contrast to the classic centres of Paris and London, placing counter-culture and conceptual art pratices to the fore. Nevertheless Brussels is home to a number of world class institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Wiels Center for Contemporary Art and The Center for Contemporary Art. The Art Brussels contemporary art fair is held in April each year.
