Common Reflection is a cozy space that aims to weave connections among artists and organisations within the Brussels Artist Run Network (BARN), and to nurture a supportive ecosystem for artists to connect and get feedback on their work. We aim to dedicate 45 minutes to each artist, each individually presenting a wide variety of artistic work.

Thursday, 4th of April, 2024 from 18:00h to 22:00h

@ Rue de l'Hectolitre 3, Reactor

We begin every evening with collective cooking because we believe this is an important step towards building relations. Then we have a dinner, during which three artists present an artwork, specifically made for this occasion, or not. Every gathering will take place in another artist-run space, which will also get some time to present themselves.

During our shared dinner three artists will show artworks, which we reflect on, together with the audience, while the artists remain the fly on the wall. Every gathering will take place in different artist-run spaces to enhance the visibility and the activity taking place in and around these initiatives.
