Expo Arte 2012
The International Tradeshow of Contemporary Art re-opens its doors to international arts. After a few years of silent and in-depth study, what has always been a major opportunity for art-related activities - thanks to high public and professionals attendance - will come back bigger and better to dominate its undisputed scene in the South of Italy.
The 20th-century's most acclaimed works of arts and new generation creations will be on display in an exhibiting area of about 5,000 square meters in the brand-new hall of Fiera del Levante, in Bari, during the 29th edition of Expo Arte.
Expo Arte is one of the biggest artistic events in the South of Italy, attended by a European public of amateurs and connoisseurs: starting from this edition, it will reserve its venue to the most distinguished art galleries worldwide. Space conception for Expo Arte aims at recreating a real journey in the history of art in the latest one hundred years, thanks to the participation of high-value Italian and international art gallery managers.
At the same time, high attention will be paid to the private artistic collection owned by Fiera del Levante, exposed to the public for the first time. The collection includes pieces created by the biggest exponents of the 20th century. But, since the very beginning, light will be shed to something else. In the welcoming area, a surprise exhibition of 4 distinguished artists will inaugurate Expo Arte 2012, and have the power to fascinate visitors and lead them through the exhibition, which will put on display other valuable works of art.
For amateurs, connoisseurs, collectors and professionals, the event is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to create new interesting business relationships and a cultural exchange with renowned art galleries.
