Arte Fiera will reopen its doors from 21 to 23 January 2022, energised by a spirit of recommencement and by the eagerness to once again personally welcome professionals and the art-loving public.

Arte Fiera, the longest-living Italian art fair (begun in 1974) remains true to its calling: to be the key exhibition for Italian galleries and for 20th and 21st-century Italian art.

Arte Fiera 2022, the third physical edition under the artistic direction of Simone Menegoi (the 2021 edition was replaced by the Playlist online cultural project), presents the strong points of the two previous editions, with emphasis on the quality of exhibited artworks.

The fair’s structure will be reinforced in the upcoming edition, with three invitation-only curated sections that accompany the Main Section to emphasise the key elements of the fair’s identity: modern art and post-war masters (Focus), 21st-century art (Pittura XXI), and photography and video (Photography and moving images).

144 galleries will participate in Arte Fiera 2022. The selection of galleries will be combined with an approach that gives space to personal poetics, and exhibitors will be explicitly requested to present a limited number of artists. As in the past, monographic exhibits (of both post-war masters and contemporary artists) will be encouraged.

As in 2020, the fair will be held in Halls 15 (contemporary art) and 18 (20th-century art), but with a new entrance so that visitors may choose which Hall to see first.

There will also be more elegant and orderly stands, the result of BolognaFiere’s decision to invest in the exhibition and enhance its quality.

See you in Bologna from 21 to 23 January 2022. Save the date!
