Independent Brussels, the Belgian edition of the New York art fair, has named Olivier Pesret and Liv Vaisberg as co-directors. They will oversee Independent’s European operations.
“Independent has been a model and personal inspiration,” Vaisberg, the co-founder of another Brussels fair, called Poppositions, said in a statement. “Its arrival to Brussels is highly anticipated and I am excited to take on the challenges now, as Brussels emerges as the new city of attraction for the contemporary art scene.”
The inaugural European fair will take place in Brussels at the Vanderborght, April 20 through 23 next year. Independent will also have two fairs in New York in the next six months—one in November, during the fall auctions, and another in March, during Armory Week.
