“For us, Art Düsseldorf is a great date in fall. The Rhineland has the potential to position two fairs: Cologne in April and Düsseldorf in fall. We will come back next year.”
(Johann König, König Galerie, Berlin)

“Our conclusion: very well-informed visitors and intellectually stimulating conversations – an international fair with an interesting mix of collectors from Belgium, Scandinavia and Germany. We made new contacts and sales.”
(Axel Vervoordt Gallery, Antwerpen)

“For the brave, for the young, for the incorrigible: 91 exhibitors take the offensive at Art Düsseldorf fair.“

“Art Düsseldorf is a beautiful fair. Our stand concept with a focus on younger artists worked out very well. We’ve sold works by all artists to well-known and new collectors and met new ones.”
(Gerd Harry Lybke, Eigen + Art, Berlin)

”A very good fair. The location is great and people feel comfortable. The fair was consistently well-attended, there was a lot of interest, lots of new contacts and we sold well.“
(Beck & Eggeling, Düsseldorf)

“The fair was very dynamic with many foreign curators and art consultants. I shared the stand with the Düsseldorf based gallery owner Linn Lühn to create synergies in this otherwise very competitive market. Art Düsseldorf has enabled me to create a dialogue between art, design and tribal art. It’s therefore an all-round positive experience for me.”
(Olivier Vrankenne, OV Project, Brussels)

“We have sold to new and existing customers. The fair has evolved in quality, we will be back next year.“
(Michael Werner Kunsthandel, Köln)

“We were there for the first time and have had a very positive experience – interested visitors and many new contacts. The interest in contemporary photography is great.“
(Bernheimer Fine Arts, Luzern)

“I am delighted with the popularity of the second edition of Art Düsseldorf. Many art lovers have come to Düsseldorf to enjoy and acquire great art from regional and international galleries in the fantastic atmosphere of the Böhler halls. A terrific event that contributes significantly to the appeal of the art metropolis Düsseldorf.“
(Thomas Geisel, mayor of Düsseldorf)

“Art Düsseldorf is booming.“
(Süddeutsche Zeitung)

“We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to our booth installation combining existing gallery represented artists with a selection of artists based in Tel Aviv. We find this dialogue has been successful in engaging further with curators, while also exciting and fresh for collectors. Sales have been strong, with works placed with sophisticated collections.“
(André Schlechtriem, DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM, Berlin)

“Art Düsseldorf has developed a clear profile, which starts from postwar modern to contemporary art. The success of the second edition is based on bringing together modern and contemporary art at a high level.“
(Aeneas Bastian, Galerie Bastian, Berlin)

“We exhibited at Art Düsseldorf for the first time and had a consistently positive experience. We met existing as well as new clients who were keen on adding works from our booth to their collections. The visitors shared a true interest in and openness to art which is helpful in building up fundamental relationships. The venue is wonderful as it provides natural daylight which creates a positive impact on experiencing the exhibited art.“
(Parisa Kind, Frankfurt on the Main)

”It enabled me to reconnect with gallerists I know and to discover new artists […] Two days in the Rhineland were too short to fully experience the region’s vitality for contemporary arts. The museums, foundations and galleries all offered their best to those who made the short trip from Brussels.“
(Frédéric de Goldschmidt, private collector based in Brussels)

”The second edition of Art Düsseldorf is doing great.“

“The second edition of Art Düsseldorf has consequently developed into a young, fresh fair with great potential.“
(Gil Bronner, Philara Collection)

“The well-attended fair resembles the Grand Palais with its high, light-flooded halls. There are also many interesting exhibitions, such as Harald Szeemann at the Kunsthalle or Cao Fei at the K21. This shows that Düsseldorf is an art metropolis.“
(Hans Ulrich Obrist, chief curator of Serpentine Gallery, London)

“The art fair at Areal Böhler has gained quality.“

“Art pleasures inside former steelworks.“
(Rheinische Post)

“In its second year, Art Düsseldorf is on the road to success.“
(Westdeutsche Zeitung)

“The interest in Art Dusseldorf was visible and noticeable also in the institutions Kunsthalle and Kunstverein, because we had a very well frequented house during all days of the fair from all parts of the republic, but also from Benelux, USA and even Korea.“
(Gregor Jansen, director, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf)

“The opening (…) was attended by well-known collectors of the region, as well as some globetrotters.“

“I do not know any fair that has such a beautiful atmosphere, flooded with day-light, the walls of Areal Böhler provide a great setting. The quality of the displayed works is high; it provides a great overview of the scene. The fair is a valuable contribution to the art city Düsseldorf, which one would not want to miss.“
(Felix Krämer, general director, Kunstpalast Düsseldorf)

“Strong even without Swiss support.“
