Köln - Germany



A dual focus distinguishes the ART.FAIR

This applies to the art itself as well as the participating galleries and the visitors.

The Art
Since its first edition in 2003, ART.FAIR successfully combines the established with the new: International top positions await our visitors. At the same time, they can discover promising, young artists at an early stage.

The Galleries
Curated and exclusive participants from emerging and renowned galleries from Germany and abroad create an exciting opposite of old and new, of established and experimental.
With „15 Minutes of Fame“ ART.FAIR offers participating galleries a special platform to introduce their projects to visitors, curators and fellow gallery owners live and in person.

The Visitors
The combination of opposites creates the unpretentious atmosphere which characterizes the ART.FAIR and with which the fair reduces inhibitions towards art.

Every year at the ART.FAIR, this strategy unites young art lovers with experienced collectors all over again. An additional target group is opened up for the galleries: the art collector of tomorrow.

BLOOOM - the converging art show
Any fair for modern and contemporary art is based on the assumption that art follows new paths, continues to develop, and constantly moves beyond its own boundaries in doing so. Discovering new forms of expression, rendering the boundaries between – for example – fine art, design, street art, and photography more fluid: That is the aim of BLOOOM – the converging art show. Since 2010 this fair, integrated within the ART.FAIR, has been supporting young galleries, off-spaces, and projects.

ART.FAIR is appearing at koelnmesse.

Halls 1 and 2 of the Cologne trade fair operator koelnmesse will host an art fair for the first time in their history.
With a total space of around 12,524 square metres, the two halls provide ample space for ART.FAIR’s exhibitors.
Separated slightly from the remaining structure of the trade fair site, these halls stand out with the design of industrial halls from the 1960s. The MERO ceiling construction with a central gabled roof extends the entire length of Hall 1, providing the ideal stage for ART.FAIR visitors to experience art in extraordinary surroundings.

We look forward to welcoming you to the stylish atmosphere of the new ART.FAIR halls on the koelnmesse trade fair site in Cologne.
