ARTIST Contemporary Art Fair offers a new opportunity for artists who want to make their work visible in national and international art circuits independently, without any kind of intermediary. This way, we make it easier for collectors and the general public to access their work without the limits or barriers that exist in traditional spaces. It is a chance for their work to be recognised and valued without any limits.
ARTIST is aimed at both established artists and new talents seeking to make their way into the artistic sphere in a versatile and varied setting. Supporting and offering them the opportunities they do not find in the current "world" of art.
With an exhibition area over 1200 m2, the first edition of ARTIST Fair will be held in the exclusive Espacio Villanueva located on Calle Villanueva, 2, Madrid. Next to the central Colon Square (Plaza de Colon) within a walking distance from the "Triangle of the Art" in Madrid: Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza y Museo Reina Sofía.
A DIFERENT approach...
ARTIST was born in response to the difficulties currently experienced by countless artists in the development of their professional careers.
Experiences that, as artists themselves, the founders and creators of ARTIST have encountered first-hand during their own professional careers.
The challenge of entering the art market in a context where very few art galleries have survived, as well as the impossibility of participating in Fairs where only a few galleries are accepted, and the high costs of participating in alternative events, etc. are just some of the numerous obstacles that hinder the artist's complicated career path today.
... During the Madrid Contemporary ART Week
ARTIST will take place during the Madrid Contemporary Art Week (26 February to 1 March 2020), when the capital of Spain becomes an international showcase, held simultaneously alongside prestigious art fairs.
We offer a great attraction for everyone, from collectors to art enthusiasts, who will be present in the city to enjoy this great event of the international art scene.
