Arte Fiera 2016

Arte Fiera in Bologna is set to celebrate its most important edition: 2016 will be the 40th anniversary of the international modern and contemporary art event, the first and most enduring event of its kind in Italy. From the 29th January to 1st February 2016, 221 exhibitors, including 190 galleries displaying 2000 works of art by 1000 artists can be found within the pavilions of BolognaFiere. This anniversary will also take place during a particular moment, in a period in which the best of Italian art is enjoying an especially high profile on the international stage, art that has passed through the pavilions of BolognaFiere and owes some of its success to Arte Fiera. The galleries enthusiasm for the 40th edition has been confirmed by the demand for space that has led to the addition of an extra pavilion for Arte Fiera 2016 to complement pavilions 25 and 26.
For the fourth year running, Claudio Spadoni and Giorgio Verzotti, will be the art directors for Arte Fiera. The exhibition route will be divided into five sections: the heart of the Fiera is represented by the Main Section with the main modern and contemporary art galleries, within this there will be a specially curated area named The Protagonists, created with the contribution of the galleries Continua, Galleria Milano, Lia Rumma, Studio La Città, Tega. The section Solo Show offers an overview of Italian and international art with stands created by the galleries that propose special exhibitions of great artists, from the modern to contemporary. This section narrates the symbiosis between gallery owners and artists that has been so fundamental to success throughout the history of art. The section New Proposals will include galleries that present the work of those aged under 35: a fundamental testimony of the role of research, discovery and the nurturing of new talent and new languages. Also present this year, in its third edition, will be the section Photography created in collaboration with MIA Photo Fair – Milan Image Art Photo Fair and curated by Fabio Castelli: an area that confirms the global trend of increasing interest in photography as an artistic language.
For this edition Arte Fiera will present a special exhibition, Arte Fiera 40, including works of artists selected from those proposed by galleries over the 40 years of Arte Fiera. But not only. Arte Fiera will also continue its focus on young artist: all of the galleries involved in this edition of Arte Fiera have been invited to exhibit works of artists under 40. A special committee will select the best works by artists under 40, whose works will be brought to the Pinacoteca to be displayed alongside those of the greats. The curatorial project for Arte Fiera 2016 will also focus once again on a series of meetings for collectors, named Conversations. In 2016 the fourth edition of Art City Bologna also has a packed programme of events and exhibitions as part of the project by to emerge from the cooperation between Bologna City and Arte Fiera, with cultural initiatives and the promotion of museums and places of art in the city. There will be important exhibitions this year with special initiatives organized by the leading contemporary art galleries in Bologna.
In short, Arte Fiera is preparing a special edition to celebrate 40 years of the event, together with the city and Italy’s modern and contemporary art galleries. More information about the event are available here.
