Argos is a Brussels based centre for art and media that was founded in 1989. Over the years the organisation has developed from a distributor of artists’ video and film into a broader art centre incorporating also functions as exhibitions, screenings and events, production, conservation and preservation, publishing and the development of a public media library.
Contretype has been promoting and exhibiting creative photography since 1978. Active in production, dissemination and publishing, it contributes to developing the artistic careers of numerous authors. Based since 1988 in the sumptuous Art Nouveau town house built in 1903 in Saint-Gilles by Edouard Hannon, Contretype has used this space to develop a cultural project in keeping with the interests and innovative spirit of its first owner.
