EDJI Gallery, nestled in the heart of Brussels, has emerged as a beacon of change in the contemporary art world. Founded with a vision to challenge traditional gallery norms, EDJI stands out for its unique approach to art curation and community engagement.
A Warm and Welcoming Space for All
Contrary to the often-perceived aloofness of art galleries, EDJI prides itself on creating a warm, inviting environment. The gallery is a space for open dialogue, encouraging everyone to discover, engage, and discuss art without intimidation. This approach is a breath of fresh air in the art world, making art accessible and enjoyable for all.
Embracing Diversity and Inclusivity
At the core of EDJI Gallery’s mission is the commitment to promoting a diverse and inclusive roster of artists. Recognizing the underrepresentation of minorities in the art world, EDJI uses art as a tool to break down barriers and celebrate society’s diverse artistic achievements. The gallery’s dedication to showcasing LGBTQIA+, women, and BIPOC artists is a testament to its belief in the power of representation.
Leveraging Digital Innovation
Understanding the importance of a digital footprint, EDJI Gallery has established a strong online presence. This digital strategy not only transcends geographical boundaries but also appeals to the new generation of art collectors. Through its website and social media channels, EDJI embraces the opportunities that technology brings to the art world.
Brussels: A Strategic and Personal Choice
The choice of Brussels as EDJI Gallery’s base is both strategic and personal. The city’s vibrant art scene, coupled with its central location in Europe, provides an ideal platform for international artists. Brussels’ cultural dynamism significantly influences the art and artists EDJI showcases, offering a fresh perspective in a market ripe for new influences.
Current Exhibition: Killion Huang’s ‘Silhouetted Love’
EDJI’s current exhibition features Killion Huang’s ‘Silhouetted Love,’ a collection that seeks to bring visibility to the queer community. Huang’s work aligns perfectly with the gallery’s mission, focusing on community and identity within the queer context.
The Future of EDJI Gallery
Looking ahead, EDJI Gallery is excited to explore new exhibition formats and expand its international footprint. The gallery plans to participate in national and international art fairs and considers opening new spaces in other countries. Staying true to its mission, EDJI looks forward to evolving in the ever-changing landscape of contemporary art.
A Personal Touch
The founders of EDJI Gallery, partners in both life and business, bring a personal touch to the gallery’s operations. Their journey as a couple and experience in art collection have naturally influenced the gallery’s diverse and inclusive curation. This personal investment is evident in every aspect of EDJI Gallery’s operations, making it a unique and authentic space in the art world.
