International exhibition of contemporary art
25–28 January 2013
Bologna Exhibition Center
A “new ARTE FIERA” to further strengthen the national and international leadership of the largest Italian fair devoted to modern and contemporary art. A strategy that begins with the appointment of two new artistic directors for the exhibition, Italian art experts Giorgio Verzotti for contemporary art and Giorgio Verzotti for modern art.
ARTE FIERA 2013, International exhibition of contemporary art, will offer a complete panorama of artwork thanks to the presence of distinguished modern and contemporary art galleries and to the creation of even stronger synergy with Bologna and its cultural institutions.
ARTE FIERA 2013 Events
ARTE FIERA Conversations – The 2013 edition will host Arte Fiera Conversations, panels, talks and debates all gathering in two new frames. Talks of “In the Spotlight” will be focused on personalities speaking about their direct or professional art-related experience. Those of “Looking forward” will have the purpose to present peculiar patterns for artistic and cultural expression.
Italian Stories Exhibition – Curated by Laura Cherubini and Lea Mattarella
The exhibition features around eighty selected works by artists represented by the galleries participating in Arte Fiera 2013. It spans the twentieth century through the younger generations, concentrating not just on the most important characteristics of Italian art but also on the way in which our country’s culture has served as a stimulus and source of inspiration for artists outside Italy. It is a story in images of the way we are, the way we see ourselves and the way others see us.
A New Section: SOLO SHOW – Among the announced initiatives, supplementing the sections devoted to modern and contemporary art, is the new SOLO SHOW section for galleries that intend to present exhibits focusing exclusively on the works of a single artist. The artists who take part in this new ARTE FIERA initiative will be selected by the Artistic Committee from among the proposals submitted by exhibiting galleries.
Award Euromobil Under 30 – The seventh edition of the Euromobil Group Award is addressed to the under 30 Italian and foreign artists whose works are exhibited at Arte Fiera 2013. The Award will be assigned by a jury of experts and critics. The prize will be presented during Arte Fiera on Saturday, January 26th at 16.00 at the Euromobil Group Space “I luoghi dell’arte, i luoghi del design.” The winner will be invited to “interact” with the Collectons of Euromobil Group, main sponsor of Arte Fiera.
