Ballroom Gallery


After their previous successful collaboration with the Ballroom Project art fair, Ida Wollens of DMW Gallery and Bart Vanderbiesen of Base-Alpha Gallery join forces in September 2021 to create a permanent space: Ballroom Gallery Brussels. 

The new project by DMW and Base-Alpha lands in the prestigious Rue Royale in Brussels as an addition to the existing spaces of both galleries in Antwerp.

The concept of Ballroom Gallery is simple: each gallery invites one artist. The combination of artists determines whether this starting point results in two separate solo shows, a duo exhibition or a more intensive collaboration. 

The new gallery will not only take inspiration from the regular programme of DMW and Base Alpha, but will explore new boundaries with a more international focus.

Besides the regular gallery operation, Ballroom Gallery also creates a space to support the generation of up-and-coming artists with “Ballroom Invites”. With this initiative, Wollens and Vanderbiesen aim to assist the new generation during their first steps in the professional art world. For this purpose, the young artists get a full gallery space at their disposal to present their first solo exhibition.
