We all adore art fairs. The fair is a place for connections – both new and old, burgeoning and long treasured, a place for untold discoveries, and yes, for business too.
As with all aspects of life, the art fair calendar has not been the same since the arrival of COVID-19. Planning is difficult, events that were once a consistent yearly component of one’s agenda, are now often either postponed or suspended. Who on earth keeps track of it all? You guessed it, Artfacts does.
If you’ve not consulted the art fair listing on our website yet, then there’s no time like the present to check it out. We currently have all running and upcoming art fairs until summer listed.
And guess what? They’re all up to date. Currently, Artfacts lists 316 active art fairs all over the world. Additionally, we have an archive of almost 300 art fairs that have closed, been renamed or merged in the past years. This record-keeping provides ample informative data to be discovered.
One of the ways we keep this information complete is with your help: The “Add Artfair Participation” tool in the drop-down menu allows you to easily submit your past or future participation in an art fair, be it as an artist or as a gallery.
May this encourage you to contribute your information to this wonderful global art fair memory. Aristotle certainly had it right when he stated: “The more you know, the more you realise you don’t know”.
We may know a lot about art fairs, but we certainly do not know everything. If you are aware of an art fair that is not listed on our website, do share that knowledge by sending us an email via [email protected] and tell us the name, place and weblink.
Make 2022 a year to connect again: at art fairs, and beyond.
Keep up the great work!
Let’s make history happen.
