LOOKING TOWARDS THE NEW GENERATION
Art Düsseldorf also sees itself as a fair for future generations of artists, gallery owners and collectors. Rsvp is a platform for galleries no more than ten years old to showcase recent work from emerging artists. The presentations spotlight the next generation of artistic talents, which visitors can discover in this in-depth and intimate setting. A jury of the following curators invites the galleries: Devrim Bayar (WIELS | Brussels, Belgium), Elisa Linn and Lennart Wolff (km temporär | Berlin, Germany) and Marianne Dobner (mumok | Vienna, Austria). With the third edition of the fair, the new format Collector’s Private Tour starts: Experienced collectors share their expertise in special guided tours with interested young collectors.
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.
