The Centre de la Gravure et de l'Image imprimée de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (CGII) is a museum/art centre dedicated to printed art, located in the centre of La Louvière, in Belgium, at 40 minutes’ drive from Brussels.
This multipurpose venue, whose missions are the conservation, exhibition, study, research and dissemination of the printed arts, houses a collection of some 14,000 artworks produced by more than 2,000 Belgian and foreign artists. This internationally recognized collection provides a broad overview of the modern and contemporary practices in the field of printed art. CGII presents its artworks alternately, whether within the temporary exhibitions developed in the museum or within more specific extra-muros projects, or within the framework of specific travelling exhibitions.
Moreover, the CGII’s documentation centre, its conference and projection room, its printmaking and typography workshops and courses allow a wide and diverse public of all generations to discover and familiarize themselves with other (practical/technical and more historical or aesthetic) aspects and facets of printed art.
