Arte Fiera aims to give special focus to the Italian art scene, taking an in-depth look at individual artists as well as exploring more theoretical aspects.
It denotes Bologna’s intention to re-claim its title as Italy’s “learned” city, going beyond the globalized art circuit also in terms of the approach to the art market.
Arte Fiera 2018 comprises: the Main Section with 107 galleries, Solo Show with 28 galleries, Photo, curated by Andrea Pertoldeo, with 12 galleries, and Nueva Vista, curated by Simone Frangi, with 4 galleries, for a total of 151 exhibitor galleries. Like last year, the number of exhibitors has been curtailed to enhance overall quality.
In Addition, 22 publisher exhibitors are to be found in the connecting area between the two pavilions, while 10 others will be curated by Amedeo Martegani, at the Service Centre.
