13-16 OCTOBER 2017 | ART PROJECT FAIR

13th EDITION

What's on

The list of exhibitors of the 13th ArtVerona: 135 galleries, 14 new independent entities and 20 from the publishing sector

Increased faith in the project and acknowledgement of the headway made in the past years: this is the backbone of the 13th edition of ArtVerona, to be held from the 13th to the 16th of October 2017 at Veronafiere, and solidly based on a selection of 135 galleries, 30 of which at their debut in Verona. In addition to these are 14 new independent entities and 20 from the publishing sector. As of this year under the art direction of Adriana Polveroni and firmly hinged on its partnership with ANGAMC – Associazione Nazionale Gallerie d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (Italian Association of Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries), the event, renowned for being the most vivacious and innovative of its kind in the sector, will be concentrating its work on the quality of the exhibits and on the care taken in the art proposals, ultimately aiming at enhancing the Italian art system. The hub of the edition will be Viaggio in Italia #backtoitaly, designed to focus the public’s attention on the Italian vocation of the event and the will to support the artists and the market that represents them in synergy with the entire art system. In the two pavilions, traditionally dedicated to Modern and to Contemporary art, respectively, there are five exhibition sections: Grand Tour and Scouting, the novelty of the year, Main Section, Raw Zone and i8-independent spaces. Grand Tour is the section that best illustrates the “Viaggio in Italia” (Journey to Italy) theme. The intent of this formula is to underscore the attraction Italy has always exercised on artists, to the point of being – what perhaps it... read more

Presentation of the 13th edition of ArtVerona | Art Project Fair

Journey to Italy #backtoitaly, art-enterprise networking, young artists and collectors are just some of the objectives of the new art director Adriana Polveroni.   Within the paces of h+, the coworking circuit in Milan, was presented ArtVerona | Art Project Fair at the helm of which, starting from the next edition, there is Adriana Polveroni. From the moderator to the space to the guests, everything spoke the language of contemporary art. This Fair is defining its peculiar identity ever more clearly; a “mechanism of cultural production” as Cristiano Seganfreddo describes it. ArtVerona 2017 is a growing fair consisting of 130 participating galleries, four exhibition sections –Main Section, Raw Zone, Scouting, i8 – independent spaces – and cultural research projects. Its growth is also the merit of Veronafiere’s investment, as it places this event in relation with Italy’s major fairs in other sectors, ranging from marble to wine, as described by Barbara Balsevich, a member of the Board of Directors of Veronafiere S.p.A., and by Elena Amadini, Deputy Sales Director of Fiera di Verona. “Journey to Italy” #backtoitaly is the leading theme of this edition aimed at highlighting the fascination Italy continues to generate amidst the new generations of artists who are much too often scarcely valorised by the international art system. Fundamental to this approach are the prizes that have the common purpose of promoting the art system, starting from Level 0 at its 5th edition in which the directors of the major contemporary art museums choose as many artists to exhibit in their museums. New prizes have been created, such as the Sustainable Art Prize, stemming from the cooperation with the ‘Ca’ Foscari’ University... read more
