A broad overview of contemporary art.
The attraction of this exhibition consists in the great variety of exhibits, ranging from multimedia, photography and installations to the classical forms of expression of painting and sculpture. There are figurative and abstract, conceptual and spontaneous works in small to large formats, by new or established artists at low to high prices. The art fair ART INTERNATIONAL ZURICH is a forum for contemporary art. As an art market place dedicated entirely to dialogue, it is an ideal place for encounters and exchanges with a great many opportunities for personal conversations. Since 1999, the art fair has established itself as a public trade and public fair in Zurich. Since then, the fair has developed into an institution on the Swiss art market that art-loving people cannot ignore. Modern and young art is presented here in a refreshingly relaxed manner, including new discoveries.
Art fairs are good for discoveries; but with its innovative exhibition concept, ART INTERNATIONAL ZURICH also creates new approaches for the art fair of the future. Thus, even away from the appealing white cube stands, you will find successful and personal art presentations here. This trade fair concept of experience spaces has future potential and stands for the change in the exhibition industry. The works of art at the art fair are as diverse and fascinating as the artists themselves, who are often personally present. The high halls give this fair a touch of museum, where visitors enter into an inner dialogue with the works of art.
A location with tradition.
Zurich's international art fair was opened in 1999 in the Kongresshaus Zürich - in the banking district near Paradeplatz and the famous shopping mile Bahnhofstrasse. In 2017, due to the long-term renovation of the Kongresshaus, the exhibition moved to PULS 5, also close to the centre - a former foundry hall converted into an event arena in the middle of the bustling trendy district of Zurich West. Since then, the exhibition has taken place in the historic foundry hall of the PULS 5 building complex. Exciting industrial architecture in a large hall with abundant daylight provide the modern and atmospheric setting for ART INTERNATIONAL ZURICH.
