For the first time in our history, we’re making every piece on display at Art Düsseldorf available with just a few clicks. Alongside our in-person art fair at Areal Böhler from April 8-10, we’re also launching an online shop for prospective customers to browse, favorite, and, of course, buy artworks from over 80 galleries – including 26 who have joined Art Düsseldorf for the first time. It’s all part of our mission to create an unforgettable and truly hybrid event that revolutionizes the art fair landscape sustainably.
This year, in addition to their booth in the Areal Böhler, every gallery will also have a dedicated section of the online shop. After a special online preview for art collectors on April 7, we’ll officially open the doors of the online shop on April 8 for all art lovers. Within the shop, you’ll be able to view and compare works, get in touch with gallery owners, and make a list of your most sought-after pieces before you hit “buy.”
Not sure about a particular piece and want more information? No problem. As part of our digital expansion, we’ll also be offering guided tours of the fair – even from the comfort of your own home. Our Art Guides are ready to live stream from Areal Böhler and take prospective collectors and VIPs on personal tours of the booths so that any questions they have can be answered. These expertly trained guides will be ready with key background info and will be available in German and English for 30-minute tours available during fair hours.
As we put the finishing touches on our fourth edition of the fair, we’re excited to expand past our physical limits and present an exciting new way to shop for art. With gallerists from Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Spain, New York, Paris, Istanbul, and more occupying booths at this year’s fair, we welcome all art lovers – no matter where you are – to experience Art Düsseldorf everywhere.
