a meet and guide by contemporary art collector, Mme Galila Barzilaï-Hollander
Galila Barzilaï-Hollander bought her first contemporary artwork in 2005. Since then her collection of art by predominantly young artists has grown to several thousand works. The intuitive collector is primarily drawn to photography, video, drawings, works on paper, and object-based art, building her collection around thematic categories such as white, eyes,, cigarettes, books, chairs, or concepts like recycling, among others. To make her art accessible to the public, she purchased an historic 1950s-era industrial building in Brussels’s Forest district. Its unobtrusive front façade blends easily into a street of revivalist residential buildings, however, the rear of the renovated structure, completed in 2018, reveals an expansive exhibition space with skylight and a mezzanine.
