The Bologna Exhibition Centre is hosting the most important trade show of Italian contemporary and modern art, from 2 to 5 February, 2018. At its 42nd edition Arte Fiera is an unmissible appointment for Italian and international collectors.
The halls 25 and 26 of BolognaFiere (the Bologna Exhibition Centre) turn into a wide platform of art and debate about the modern and the contemporary, housing important art galleries as well as exhibitors dealing with publishing, graphics, and creativity. For the second year, the art direction is by Angela Vettese. Arte Fiera aims to give special focus to the Italian art scene, taking an in-depth look at individual artists as well as exploring more theoretical aspects. As in the previous edition, Arte Fiera 2018 is organized in various sections mingled together, featuring some novelties too.

ART CITY Bologna 2018
Arte Fiera is closely tied to the city, which is coming alive with exhibitions, events, and special initiatives from 2 to 4 February.  The 6th edition of ART CITY Bologna - with the new art direction by Lorenzo Balbi - is featuring a special project produced by ART CITY Bologna for the first time, whose protagonist is the Russian artist Vadim Zakharov with his exhilarating and subversive performance Tunguska Event, History Marches on a Table, conceived for the centenary of the Russian Revolution.
Besides, ten events are going to explore the best of the contemporary, paying a special attention to the contamination of different art languages. The program includes exhibitions, installations, and performances by some of the most interesting names of the Italian and international scene: Katarina Djzelar, Yuri Ancarani, Jacopo Mazzonelli, Erin Shirreff, Luca Pozzi, Home Movies + Giuseppe De Mattia, Hana Lee Erdman, CT (Matteo Ceretto Castigliano), Roberto Pugliese, and Alessandra Messali.
Furthermore, the ART CITY Bologna weekend is enriched by a selection of initiatives organized by other institutions, public boards, and cultural realities operating in Bologna.
As for previous editions, ART CITY White Night is also arriving on Saturday, February 3 with a lot of appointments, special night openings, and events, involving not only galleries and museums, but also bars and restaurants, ‘osterie’, shops, private centres.
ART CITY Bologna is promoted by the Comune di Bologna, in collaboration with BolognaFiere, on the occasion of Arte Fiera, and coordinated by the Modern and Contemporary Art Area of the Bologna Musei Institution.
