Volonteers Call


POPPOSITIONS is currently looking for for highly motivated and dedicated volunteers willing to join us during four days (April 24—28) for the 8th edition of POPPOSITIONS and setting up the fair with participants (April 22—23). We strongly believe in a collaborative approach by working closely with artists, curators and collectors and we are looking for volunteers who fit this state of mind.


POPPOSITIONS is an annual assembly in Brussels of galleries, artist initiatives and project spaces. Conceived as an experiment with the art fair format, POPPOSITIONS allows emerging organisations to have visibility during the busy art week in April, while adding value to the off programme of Art Brussels and offering an alternative to the classic system of contemporary art fairs.

The 8th edition of POPPOSITIONS will take place in the Centre Tour à Plomb in Brussels.
