140 galleries will be selected this year (participation proposals must be sent by 10 May 2019) divided into two macro-areas: the Main Section, that will host historicised modern artists and contemporary artists, and the Research Section, that will host the latest generations of artists.

Main Section

 

This is the pulsing artery of the fair, involving both pavilions and including both long-standing and younger galleries sharing the proposal of a qualified focus on Italian artists.
Not only those acclaimed by critics and collectors, but also mid-career artists – a precious and not yet fully tapped resource – and emerging artists as well.

Research section

Raw Zone

This section confirms the aim of giving visibility to the research galleries, also capable of putting to qualified use a “raw” essential space dedicated to a single artist. Thanks to its open layout Raw Zone, dedicated to 8 galleries, fosters a direct and more informal connection with the public – a winning strategy for many young galleries participating since the first edition.

Scouting

This section is a natural follow-up to the Raw Zone, featuring an enhanced display and design experience (hosting no more than two or three artists).
A meeting place for 16 experimental galleries, to advance innovative proposals creating suggestions and contamination of ideas.

Grand Tour

“#backtoitaly” is the event’s payoff: Italy has always been a source of inspiration for artists. #backtoItaly hints at foreign entities present in Italy and interested in Italian artists, and at Italian gallerists living abroad who are “coming back” to Italy. This is the concept behind the Grand Tour area, where this focus on Italian art is illustrated with artworks by Italian artists or by other references to Italy’s art scene.

Focus on

Based on the Fair’s internationalization growth towards North-Eastern Europe, the ‘Focus on’ section has been confirmed for the second year. This space will host a collective exhibition of galleries from a foreign country, chosen by the Artistic Director.

i10 – Independent Spaces

Now at its 10th edition, this fair section, curated by Cristiano Seganfreddo, hosts for free 14 non-profit associations operating with the languages of contemporary art, selected in collaboration with the media partner Artribune. Starting from 2017, this project is included in THE INDEPENDENT platform, which offers the winner the opportunity to work with the MAXXI Museum.

Free Stage

From an idea by Adriana Polveroni, ‘Free Stage’ is an exhibition space for young artists not promoted by any gallery, but rather presented by an artist of the previous generation, in a close dialogue among them.
