Happy New Year! We hope you’ve had a restful and productive break and are off, like us, to a running start. ArtFacts.Net is here with your January Round-Up to keep you up to speed with the major art fairs happening around the world this month. The world of contemporary art truly doesn’t sleep, and we’ve got quite a bit to cover.
Through its latest programme, Art Stage Singapore references the Roman forum and the agora of ancient Greece, thus positioning the Fair as an intersection that facilitates not merely the exchange of art, but also of ideas.
Recognized for its maverick spirit, the Outsider Art Fair plays a vital role in building a passionate collecting community as crowds flock annually to New York for the eclectic and unique shows. This year, the fair takes place at the Metropolitan Pavillion.
When? 21.1.2016 – 24.1.2016 Where? Los Angeles, USA
The international photographic art exposition Photo L.A. will proudly celebrate its 25th anniversary fair this January 21 – 24, 2016 in historic downtown Los Angeles. Proceeds from their Opening Night Gala will benefit Best Buddies International.
Looking back on the 20 year history of the L.A. Art Show, one can’t help but notice how it’s evolved, changing locations and growing in diversity to reflect the trajectory of the burgeoning L.A. art scene. The new fair will have dedicated areas to Modern and Contemporary art, and next door, the Los Angeles Fine Art Show will exhibit works of Historic and Traditional Contemporary Art.
The fair presents top established and emerging galleries from around the world, with a strong focus on Los Angeles galleries. Participants present some of the most dynamic recent works from their roster of represented artists, offering an informed cross section of what is happening now in contemporary art making.
When? 28.1.2016 – 31.1.2016 Where? Innsbruck, Austria
More than 90 galleries and art dealers from 10 nations present international fine art and antiques of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Unique pieces include everything from paintings, sculptures, jewelry, photography, and home goods.
When? 28.1.2016 – 31.1.2016 Where? Geneva, Switzerland
Art Genève is an art exhibition which aims to establish an artistic platform in the Suisse Romande- at the very forefront of contemporary art, modern art, and contemporary design. The venue and program pays homage to the Lake Geneva region’s many collectors and art-lovers.
India Art Fair is South Asia’s leading platform for modern and contemporary art and portal to the region’s cultural landscape. Founded in 2008, the India Art Fair has become the bedrock of a now booming cultural community with connections to every level of the market.
In September 2016, ArtFacts will celebrate its 15th birthday. Has it already been that long? It feels like just yesterday we pushed the button and launched ourselves into the great unknown.
Although we officially went online on September 27th, 2001, we’d prefer to keep the party going all year long. After all, it’s a huge milestone we’re enormously proud of. 2016 promises to be a year of change and exponential growth, and to honor those exciting developments, we’ll be sharing our story, hi-lighting our favorite campaigns, and throwing in some special promotions.
To our subscribers: we thank you for your continued support. We wish you all the best in the upcoming year.
