For her first edition in Maastricht, the contemporary international art fair YIA Art Fair will take place at the exhibition venue Gebouw M – Tapijnkazerne, located in the city center only 5 minutes from the famous TEFAF.
From 09 to 13 March, 2017 the 1 000 m2 of exhibition space will host a selection of 28 curatorial projects proposed by excellent international galleries. In parallel, for her cultural Hors Les Murs program YIA Art Fair will invest in the Wiebengahal, annex of the contemporary art museum – Bonnefanten Museum – with a VIP program consisting of guided tours and private events.
Maastricht will become the capital of art in March.
It is on the occasion of the 25 years of the Maastricht treaty, a strong political symbol of cooperation between the countries of the European Union, that YIA will establish in Maastricht in the heart of the European continent.
In this context, the exchange between national and foreign professional actors is reflected in the eclecticism of the fairs program, which highlights the contemporary artistic scene.

With her 10 000 expected visitors, this new YIA Art Fair #08 edition has the support of the cultural department of the city and is in contact with the European media, such as Artpress, Artprice and Le Vif. With her emerging and dynamic works and ideas, YIA Art Fair will enter the existing cultural landscape as a promise of renewal.
