The place
Not far from avenue Louise and Ixelles’s ponds, in the heart of the gallery district, the Foundation house was built in 1924 by the architect Jean Hendricks. It has been completely
renovated to accommodate its activities by the architecture duo Vanden Eeckhoudt- Creyf, in a contemporary style, while retaining its modernist spirit. In addition to the exhibition and workspaces, the venue offers a library, four bedrooms and a large kitchen-dining-terrace area.

“I wanted a place that brings together and fosters a community; a place for artists, the primary actors in this long-term project. A public meeting place for sharing and hosting encounters around creation. Traversing across modes of operation, the domestic space of the foundation aims to represent processes of engaged creation through speech, gestures, dance and texts; a sharing of knowledge and an ambition to de-compartmentalize artistic practices. A place that activates thought and prompts investigation into the great challenges of our society through the medium of art.” Now an author, curator, publisher and art collector, Nathalie Guiot studied journalism and communication. She founded Anabet Éditions in the 2000s and in 2012, created Thalie Art Project, an association that produces artistic and performative encounters. The association became a private foundation in 2014. Founding member of the Tokyo Art Club (Palais de Tokyo), Nathalie Guiot is a member of the Design Acquisition Committee at the Pompidou Center and active patron of other cultural institutions in France and Belgium.
