That's What X Said

That's What X Said is a socio-politically engaged art space striving for systemic change. That's What X Said organises exhibitions tackling social & political issues, art that has the power to disrupt the status-quo. With each exhibition, That's What X Said hosts events to discuss the topics introduced through art. That's What X Said is also a shop aiming to promote the Belgian art scene, as well as artists whose work shares our values.

Who's involved in it ?

It was founded by Elisa Huberty and Rébecca Prosper and we're still only 2 people working there.

What’s your origin story and your motivation?

We both studied History of Art and Art Business, Elisa in the UK (Brighton and London), and Rébecca in Brussels and Paris. We've been involved in the art world for almost 10 years and wanted to create an art space that would show art that has the power to disrupt mentalities.

Could you describe the accessibility of your space?

There are a few stairs to get to the exhibition space. The shop part if wheelchair accessible. We don't have chairs. It's close to a bus stop and 10min walk from Gare Centrale. Parking is a bit tough in the Marolles. No flashing lights.

Where can we find you virtually and/or physically?

142 rue Blaes, 1000 Bruxelles. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.30am to 6pm.
