Conceived as an experiment with the art fair format, POPPOSITIONS is a pop-up fair changing location for each edition and featuring artists proposed by galleries and organizations working with site-specific exhibitions.
As a fair dedicated to galleries working with sitespecific exhibitions, POPPOSITIONS highlights the artistic benefits of nomadism. Working outside the confines of white gallery walls allows a larger audience to be reached and stimulates curatorial creativity. Moreover, numerous examples show how pop-up exhibitions can strengthen neighbourhood spirit and imbue quotidian or desolate places with new life and vitality. Furthermore, there is a long tradition of sitespecificity throughout the history of art. By applying this ethos to the art fair, POPPOSITIONS presents participants with a curatorial challenge absent from ordinary fairs.
The second edition will take place between 18 and 21 April 2013 in parallel with Art Brussels. Artworks will be presented in deliberate interaction with the unique architectural setting of Brass.
