The phenomenon is real; art fairs have changed the world of art gallery purchasing. With the increase of the global market, art fairs are now one of the most popular stages for galleries and artists alike to gain popularity, meet other participants, and increase sales in ways not feasible a decade ago. Further, in today’s world of maximum efficiency, visitors get the most “bang for their buck,” encountering more pieces of artwork in a brief period than ever before. In fact, gallery sales at art fairs increased to 40% of all gallery sales since 2014. This venue allows galleries worldwide to come to one location, increasing their traffic exponentially, and provides one-stop shopping for collectors, as well as socialize and attend educational opportunities with other like-minded people.
With so many fairs to choose from, these are some of the top choices in international art fairs.
