The Proximus Art Collection, a collection of contemporary art by renowned Belgian and international artists, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The collection brings together sculptures and paintings, as well as photographs and videos, with a clear focus on contemporary works. Exhibited in the Proximus offices, these works offer both a source of inspiration and a vision of the world to Proximus employees.

The 25th anniversary of the collection is therefore an excellent occasion to celebrate it. By organizing the exhibition ‘Art with a View: 25 years Proximus Art Collection‘, Proximus wishes to give art lovers the opportunity to come and admire the many unique pieces within the offices of the Proximus Towers, their natural habitat.

Joost Declercq, guest curator and former director of the Dhondt-Dhaenens museum, has selected more than 200 works that tell a fascinating story, a journey into the history of art since the end of the 20th century.

Among the notable works on display is the “Children’s Pavilion” by Canadian artist Jeff Wall. This iconic work, one of the collection’s first acquisitions, will return to Proximus Towers after a long restoration, allowing visitors to “Art with a View” to admire it in optimal conditions for the first time in years. The exhibition also includes masterpieces by Alighiero Boetti, Rineke Dijkstra, Lee Friedlander, Andréas Gursky, On Kawara, Panamarenko, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Sigmar Polke and Andy Warhol.
