The new Path format
A total of 141 exhibitors from the Main Section and the curated sections will participate in Arte Fiera 2023 edition www.artefiera.it.
The Main Section ranges from Modern and post-war art, historical strengths of the event, to contemporary research, with a strong emphasis on Italian art. This area will be flanked by three curated and invited sections: the newly created Multipli, dedicated to the works in editions, curated by Lisa Andreani and Simona Squadrito; the now well-established Painting XXI, which offers a glimpse of Italian and international painting of the new millennium, again curated by Davide Ferri. Finally Photography and moving images, which tackles this medium with an interdisciplinary approach, and which sees the arrival of Giangavino Pazzola as curator.
The new Path format makes its debut at Arte Fiera 2023, a thematic itinerary among the stands of the Main Section that offers a journey through art, especially Italian art, from the first half of the 20th century to today. The leitmotif of this “first time” is ceramics.
