The Brussels Centre for Contemporary Art is housed in the Blomme building, one of the rare examples of Modernist industrial architecture in the city. The historical brewery was converted to suit the diverse activities of the centre and is now featuring a restaurant, library, cinema, audiovisual laboratory and a roof terrace with a panoramic view. Thus the Wiels Centre could be considered a tourist landmark as well as a cultural centre. Essentially, the Wiels Centre is an international laboratory of contemporary art, an institution combining a diversity of functions: it houses an exhibition hall, artists' residences, hosts educational projects, workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions. The Centre is open and dynamic, it carries out a variety of short-term activities yet does not accumulate a permanent art collection. Every year the Centre hosts a number of extensive temporary exhibitions.
