Classic Modern and Contemporary uniquely arranged
At home in the art collectors’ State of Baden-Württemberg, embedded in a dense cultural landscape with great private collections such as Grässlin (St. Georgen), Schaufler (Sindelfingen), Hoppe-Ritter (Waldenbuch), Museum Würth (Schwäbisch Hall and elsewhere) and Frieder Burda Foundation (Baden-Baden), art KARLSRUHE has established itself since 2004 as a permanent feature on the international art-fair scene.
Furthermore, art KARLSRUHE boasts a convincing curatorial concept, which also clearly assigns specific focal points to each of the four halls:
- Halle 1: Photography + Original Editions
- Halle 2: Modern Classic (after 1945) + Contemporary art
- Halle 3: Classic Modern + Contemporary art
- Halle 4/dm-arena: ContemporaryArt 21
Interspersed in the landscape of gallery stands, the approximately twenty Sculpture Areas add structure to the fair’s halls and create venues for contemplation. Each of these 100-square-metre areas offers gallery owners the opportunity to present one or maximally two artists. The interplay between three-dimensional art on an open area and two-dimensional art at the fair’s stands sparks enthusiasm among the exhibiting gallery owners and collectors.
The One-Artist-Shows (each with at least 25 square metres of exhibition space) embody a gallery’s commitment to a single artist. Each One-Artist-Show offers collectors the opportunity to gain deeper insights into the oeuvre of the exhibiting artist.
