A fine Fine Art gallery
lip 2017 • Biznesowy
Contretype is an important institution in Belgium's vibrant contemporary art photography scene. It's in the hip district of St. Gilles, which is nice because you could catch an exhibition and head down to the bars. Contretype is bus/metro/tram accessible - just cross the road - so no excuse not to go there if contemporary photography is your thing. Every now and then, an artist would be in residence. Ask to meet the artist! For architecture lovers, Contretype is located in a 150+ year old residential building - look out for the little plaque at the gate.

I had the same experience as the previous reviewer - visited one afternoon in June and found no signs of life - or signs at all for that matter. No notice other than a plaque with its name on it. Interesting on the outside, but be prepared for it to be closed.

Excellent contemporary photo gallery
lip 2017
IMPORTANT! the gallery has moved to Cité Fontainas 4A (near Hal Gate). The 3 exhibits on display while I was there on July 1st were very interesting and enjoyable, giving a good insight on up-and-coming Belgian photography. My only regret: the beautiful Hôtel Hanon isn't accessible any more :-(

Not sure it still operating seems abandoned
cze 2017 • Pary
We were staying quite close and admired the building from out side rang the button several different times on a Wednesday , one of the days it used to be open all seems closed down now but it's a beautiful building, pity we didn't,t get to see the frescos inside but have seen them on various websites. The whole adjacent streets are littered with wonderful historical buildings so if you are into the architecture have a walk around this area.

A haven for contemporary photography
paź 2015 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Contretype is a wonderful cultural space devoted to contemporary photography which doesn't even require an entrance fee. Its exhibitions are diverse and represent new and established photographers from across Europe and the globe. (A note to visitors, however: Contretype is no longer located in the Hotel Hannon, a stunning example of Art Nouveau which is currently undergoing restoration. Its new location is at Cité Fontainas 4A near the Hallespoort subway stop.)

Closed the Day We Visited
maj 2015 • Pary
After seeing online photos of Hotel Hannon, I was really excited about visiting this beautiful art nouveau space. We visited on the afternoon of Sunday, May 3, and, despite the banners promoting the Espace Photographique Contretype on the street, this place was well and truly shut. Not sure if it is closed on Sundays or if it is undergoing restoration. (The website for EPC no longer lists this address at all, yet the banners were out at this location. The Visit Brussels official tourism website still lists it at this address in its English translation, but not in the French version.) So disappointing!

beautiful art deco house
sie 2014 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
A beautiful art deco house, now used as a photo gallery. It has some very nice features like the fresco in the stairwell, the mosaic floors and certainly the stunning stained glass windows. They are done by Evaldre, who studied at Tiffany's. A pity that the original furniture is all gone.
The entrance price is only €3 and a really must see for art deco lovers. The information about the house in their guide is in English, Dutch and French.

Hôtel Hannon / Hannon House
lis 2013 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
A beautiful, nicely unmolested old Art Nouveau house with a gentle patina. Sensitively converted into a photography gallery. For a very reasonable €3 you can linger in the dining room looking at their library of photography books, and explore the several rooms on the ground and first floors. The staircase is gorgeous. Their little guide to the house is informative. From time to time there are opening-night events and the like.

Stunning art deco house now used as a photography gallery.
mar 2013 • Dla rodziny
This lovely art deco building by Architect Jules Brunfaut is within walking distance of the Horta Museum. It is now used as a museum but is inexpensive to enter and a definite must see for art deco fans. There is a marvelous fresco just as you enter and unlike at the Horta Museum you can take all the photos your heart desires. It is unfurnished and now used as the Espace Contretype, which stages photo shows here. No one minds if you are there for the building rather than the exhibit. There were four of us, a young adult Belgian and three Americans (9, 15, & adult). We all enjoyed the relaxed, uncrowded atmosphere after the Horta Museum. The youngest preferred the Horta though since it was furnished. I think they make a good pair to see on the same day. It would be a shame to overlook this art deco gem simply because it is being used as gallery space and less well known than the other.
