Espace 251 Nord is a Belgian art centre dedicated to the production and exhibition of Belgian and foreign artists. To intensify the visibility and circulation of artists throughout Wallonia and Brussels, the non profit organization organizes exhibitions and manages communication in the Euregio Meuse-Rhin and Europe (Rome, Venice, Florence, Delft, Lisbon, Paris, Lille). Espace 251 Nord organizes «extra-muros» exhibitions to get artists works to circulate, in order to raise awareness about contemporary art among various types of audiences. Since 1984, it has also been offering periods of residence to Belgian artists. Espace 251 Nord provides a unique framework for artists to pursue their practice and engage in current debates and researches that examine the potentials of contemporary artistic production.
