German art fair chooses expansive new space to show off contemporary works
Wednesday 13 October 2010
For the first time, Germany's annual Art.Fair 21 will relocate to the Staatenhaus am Rheinpark in Cologne, an exhibition space large enough to display the fair's vast selection of contemporary works whilst also housing concurrent Art.Fair 21 events under the one roof.
Contemporary works of art made by German and international artists born after 1960 are the focus of the fair, with the most emphasis being placed on the work of artists born between 1960 and 1980.
More than 80 local and international galleries have been carefully chosen by the selection committee for the fair's eighth edition.
An expected 30,000 visitors will be welcomed to explore the paintings, sculptures, photography, performance works and new media housed in the fair's expansive 10,000 square meters of exhibition space.
Art Forum Berlin, a German art fair also highlighting the works of artists born after 1960, was held in Berlin from October 7 to 10, welcoming around 40,000 visitors.
Additional contemporary art fairs in Europe held in October include London's Frieze Art Fair (October 14-17), Christie's Multiplied Contemporary Editions Fair (October 15-18), The Affordable Art Fair in London (October 21-24), and France's FIAC (October 21-24) and Art Elysées (October 21-25).
Art.Fair 21: 21st Century Art takes place from October 29 to November 1 at the Staatenhaus am Rheinpark in Cologne, Germany.
