Art Düsseldorf will establish itself as a new and innovative platform for collectors, gallerists and curators. By selecting Duesseldorf’s Areal Böhler as the venue of Art Düsseldorf, the fair has positioned itself at the junction of the Rhineland and the Ruhr Valley: in the heart of a metropolitan region that has ten million inhabitants and is, with regard to art and culture, at the center of one of Western Europe’s most vibrant regions.
The internationally renowned art metropolis Duesseldorf positions itself as an ideal location, with its large draw area and its constantly expanding number of art collectors. Thus, Art Düsseldorf is embedded within a dense urban cultural landscape with important art institutions directly neighboring it along the Rhine and Ruhr rivers, in Cologne and Bonn, Essen and Bochum.
Art Düsseldorf will combine the established with the new. It joins the experimental and the canonized in a direct opposition under the same roof. Around 80 established and young galleries from 21 countries show modern and contemporary art (1945-2017).
