“Uptown Art & Design 2019 – The Brussels Limited Edition” will take place from September 12 to September 28, 2019. Uptown Design evolves again and opens to contemporary art. Design and art creations will be exhibited now in the Uptown. Since its creation, this tour of exhibitions remains devoted to the discovery of Belgian and international design but adds a new artistic value to the course. Artists will also be exhibited in the shops in the upper part of the city.

The mixture of genres will be on the program.
