The Centre for Fine Arts
Ever since its foundation, the National Orchestra of Belgium has enjoyed a special position as a guest of the Centre for Fine Arts. This complex, which is at the heart of the country's cultural life, is the venue for many of its concerts.
The Centre for Fine Arts, BOZAR.BE, was conceived in the 1920s, at a time when Brussels lacked exhibition spaces for modern art and a major concert hall.
Victor Horta, an architect of whom we are rightly proud, proposed constructing a complex in the heart of the Belgian capital that would be devoted to the arts. Horta himself designed the art deco-style Centre for Fine Arts, inaugurated in 1928, which today enjoys a reputation that extends far beyond the borders of Belgium.
The Centre brings together disciplines as diverse as the visual arts, theatre, cinema, and music. A number of associations make use of and bring to life this complex, which also plays host to many guest productions. As a result, the Centre for Fine Arts has become a place of discovery, of encounters, and of multiple exchanges.
