Popular art fairs
There are more than 350 art fairs yearly, for all tastes and pockets. These spectacular trade shows, which bring together collectors, dealers, art advisors, curators, artists and enthusiastic crowds, are real ephemeral exhibitions showcasing a wide range of treasures. Can art fairs be considered as temporary competitors of museums? The question may arise as their popularity has exploded in the past decades and thousands of visitors walks on the corridors.
Art fairs for all
From the not-to-be-missed TEFAF, Frieze or Art Basel to the exciting Affordable Art Fair, the cheerful Ann Arbor Art Fair or the dynamic Uptown Art Fair, art shows have their own approaches and a strong identity.
Together, they cover 7,000 years of art history. Visitors can admire and purchase fine antiques at Masterpiece London, Old Masters paintings at La Biennale Paris, modern art pieces at The Armory Show, and contemporary artwork at FIAC, to name but a few.
Collectors and art lovers can also choose to visit a specialized fair, like PAD for Design, Urban Art Fair for street art, Asia Now for Chinese and Japanese art, AIPAD for photography or BRUNEAF for primitive art.

Besides the art fairs taking place in important cities like New York, Paris, London or Berlin, the global art market has expanded and art shows have emerged all over the world, in India, China, Japan, South America and in the UAE, amongst others.
Young art fairs as KIAF in Seoul, ARTBO in Bogota, 1:54 in Marrakech or Art X Lagos in Nigeria have quickly built a name. This proliferation of fairs is a good barometer of the emulation of these new artistic hubs.
Art fairs, galleries and artists
Art fairs are a great meeting place for collectors and people in the art business. They play a major role in galleries’ economic health and, by extension, in the living artists’ career. Exploring art fairs is a good way to take the pulse of the global art market.
