1. The Art of the Brick: An Exhibition of LEGO


Before attending this event, I thought, ugh, lego, what is this? Anyone can do it, and it’s just playing with toys. Looking closer at the Lego creations, I realized that creating every piece takes time, skill, and dedication. The author mastered proportions, color, movement, and perspective to portray the right emotions. It was a great exhibition that invited you to see things beyond what they seem. It’s a great idea to go with your kids as there is a place at the end of the exposition to play with legos and even buy a few bricks.

2. Tokyo Art City: the 360Β° interactive experience


I didn’t know what to expect. I was curiously interested and pleasantly surprised. The main attraction is the 360ΒΊ interactive room of sound and light show of Tokyo. The multi-sensory experience is an introduction to the busy life of Tokyo, its culture, and traditions. After this visual experience, you might discover that a trip to Japan is what you’ve been missing in life. I will for sure be visiting Japan soon. After the interactive room, you are welcomed with free mochi ice cream and can even buy Japanese products. Also, there is a corner with a swing dressed in cherry blossoms vibes, a room filled with lights, a virtual reality experience, and another corner with Mount Fuji for pictures.

3. Illusion Brussels


I came across this place while exploring the streets of Brussels City. Saw a big queue of people and wondered what are they all waiting for. I went alone, and it was a bit boring but if I were to go with someone I would have enjoyed it more. This is a great place to come with friends or family, as there are many interactive activities. It’s better to book your ticket in advance on their website so you don’t have to wait in line as the wait can take a while. Once you’re in, you realize it’s not big and gets crammed easily. As the name says, you experience different illusions in this place, which can be interesting to observe.

4. Happiness Expo. Art a positive boost for your brain


Located right in the center of Brussels, this art expo offers a show of color, light, and movement in which you are the primary participant. This art installation enriches human sensory perception through digital technology, computer animation, video mapping, augmented reality, and smart light projection. The color, lights, rapid movement, and music will have you in a trance. But, of course, you have to experience it yourself.


5. Reset Immersive. Whispering Lights


This event occurs in an abandoned building that feels colder than outside. For this reason, they even give you a jacket since you will be sitting as you move across the exhibition. Once you enter, you don’t know what to expect, but it feels like you are traveling in the future and the past simultaneously. You are first seated to experience a virtual reality sensory trip followed by a walk through the building exploring light installations and video projections. Toward the end, there is another virtual reality experience. This was a strange and unique event in a completely different setting than the rest.

Overall, I would say that digital art was a recurrent theme in many events where the artists tried to project and awaken different feelings and thoughts within the participants. The projections make you feel alive and vibrant, and I enjoyed every single one. Remember that these exhibitions are temporary and might change or be replaced by other events. Nevertheless, when the weather is terrible, which is most of the time in Brussels, these events help bring a smile, make you forget about your worries, release stress, and even boost energy. So take advantage of these amazing art events in Brussels to give a much-needed boost to your brain.
