A disposizione – ArtVerona Purchase Fund
This is the name of ArtVerona’s art purchase fund, established in 2018, that allocates 10,000 euros every year. In this way the Fair makes itself ‘A disposizione’ and makes art too ‘A disposizione’, underlining the importance of ArtVerona as a focal event in the program of bringing art, culture and business closer together and helping its local context as well as its partners growing.
The acquisition of an artwork that symbolically represents the Fair as its being an event that promotes the Italian art system and defines the outline of today’s contemporary art scenario. The aim of this contest is to acknowledge the professionalism of the galleries that are the soul and expression of the Fair.
