A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
Art Düsseldorf provides a focused and contained exhibitor program, offering a unique Rhineland flavor for regional and international guests to enjoy the highest quality of art. Presenting strong works by renowned and young international artists, as well as art from the area, the fair’s main focus is to deliver an unparalleled experience for both exhibitors and visitors, enhanced by the non-conventional exhibition space – perfectly suitable for the exhibition of art. The fair offers a framework program with guided tours and talks about art, collecting and cultural politics.
SUPPORTING YOUNG GALLERIES
Art Düsseldorf provides special support for young galleries founded after September 2008, which are presented in the Post Lehman section, with reduced booth prices. On top of that, a jury of curators from the Rhineland area awards the best booth presentation.
THE CITY’S ROLE FOR ART DÜSSELDORF
With its art academy, exhibition venues, museums and private collections, the city of Düsseldorf has a strongly developed and internationally renowned art scene. Its cultural map is diverse – and constantly evolving. Having chosen Düsseldorf as location, the fair has positioned itself at the junction of the Rhineland and the Ruhr Valley: in the heart of a metropolitan region that has ten million inhabitants and is, with regard to art and culture, at the center of one of Western Europe’s most vibrant regions. Thus, the fair is embedded within a dense urban cultural landscape with important art institutions directly neighboring it along the Rhine and Ruhr rivers, in Cologne and Bonn, Essen and Bochum.
