The mission

Created in 2014 by Nathalie Guiot, author, publisher and collector, Fondation Thalie aims at supporting contemporary creation as a lever for action, exchange and transmission.
Nested in a neo-modernist house in Brussels, the Foundation welcomes artists and authors through research residencies, organizes exhibitions and works to defend the transversality of disciplines (visual arts, science, contemporary writing) and artistic practices involved in a consciousness of the ecological transition, the design of CARE and the attention to know-how.

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 work spaces, the venue offers a library, four bedrooms and a large kitchen-dining-terrace area.
