One of the major fairs in Latin America, Art Lima is one of the two international art shows of Peru, with PArC. Both fairs take place mid-April in the capitale. Art Lima is dedicated to contemporary art and displays it on an international stage. Indeed, collectors from Latin America and the rest of the world come every year to admire and purchase edgy artworks from both emerging and established artists. The organizers truly want to promote collection. Thus, each edition rewards a private collector, a compagny or a cultural institution that serves contemporary art. Additionally, a professional jury awards different prizes for artists in several categories.

What would you say is the DNA of Art Lima?
Art Lima is a contemporary Art Fair that also includes content with Peruvian identity.
What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?
Galleries, according to the section in which they participate, are evaluated by a committee or by a curator or group of curators. They can be consolidated galleries, emerging or self-managed projects with an international trajectory.

The price range is between $800 to more than $100,000. However the average purchase is between $3,000 and $8,000. The average buyer is a collector or a private company.
