Proximus Art Collection
Set in Brussels’ Northern Quarter, the headquarters of Belgian telecommunications company Proximus (formerly Belgacom) occupy 28-floor twin towers, connected 100 metres up by a walkway offering a panoramic view of the city. These buildings have been owned by Proximus since March 1993. Together with another, six-storey building, the complex has 100,000 m² of office space used by over 4,500 employees. The staff entrance is next to Bruxelles-Nord/Brussel-Noord railway station. On the other side, the main hall leads to an auditorium, a series of lifts, restaurants, meeting rooms, a bank, a postal sorting area, a security control centre, an infirmary and Proximus shops. The extensive use of glass ensures optimal interior light. As well as benefiting employees, this shows off the many artworks in the company’s collection to the best effect. The non-profit organisation Proximus Art was established in 1996 with the aim of acquiring works that could be integrated into the work environment. The collection encompasses various means of artistic expression, giving a good overview of the major trends in contemporary art from 1950 to 2000. Its presence fosters interaction between members of staff and is also a draw for the public, with guided tours being organised for them.
Exhibition marking the 25th anniversary of the Proximus Art Collection. More than 200 contemporary artworks by Belgian and international artists will be showcased here from 18 September to 19 December 2021.
