Brussels is not wanting for modern and contemporary art, nor architecture. On the contrary, the capital is home to many institutions dedicated to the most diverse artistic disciplines.
The only thing missing was a museum of modern and contemporary art and an architecture museum. Hence the KANAL Centre Pompidou project, located in the 35,000m² of the former Citroën garage, on place de l'Yser. Before the renovation works begin, they are scheduled to end in 2022/2023, the Kanal Foundation has decided to launch a pilot year on May 5, 2018. For 13 months, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, the public will be able to discover this mythical building through several exhibitions, large installations, ten new creations by Brussels artists and a programme of live shows.
