New date: art KARLSRUHE postponed to 21st – 24th May 2021

The art KARLSRUHE – fair for Classic Modern and Contemporary Art – will now take place from 21st to 24th of May 2021 at Messe Karlsruhe. The preview and vernissage for invited guests will take place on 19th and 20th of May.

The current course of the corona pandemic and the far-reaching measures for public life which the Federal Government and the Minister Presidents put into force at the beginning of this week are the reason why Messe Karlsruhe is rescheduling its portfolio of events in January and February 2021 with foresight.

"In consultation with exhibitors, sponsors, the advisory board and of course our curator Ewald Karl Schrade, we have looked for dates in our calendar that are suitable for art KARLSRUHE in the competitive environment and are accepted by the industry", explains Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe. "The new scheduling should lead to improved planning security for all those involved. It is important to us that the confidence of exhibitors, visitors and partners in the planning of trade fair participations is maintained. Our early decision to reschedule art KARLSRUHE is in the interest of all. By rescheduling, we have placed the interests of our exhibitors at the centre of our decision". The art KARLSRUHE was originally scheduled to take place from 25th to 28th of February 2021 at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre.

About the fair

The art KARLSRUHE (May 21st to 24th in 2021) is a fair for Classic Modern and Contemporary Art spanning 120 years of art history. National as well as international galleries show the spectrum of the art market - from the complete spectrum of 20th century art to works fresh from the studios. A special unique selling point in the airy, light-flooded exhibition halls is the unique layout of galleries in interplay with spacious sculpture spaces and one-artist shows that focus on the artistic work of individuals. The national and international appeal of art KARLSRUHE appeals to both established collectors and newcomers to the art market and is firmly anchored in the cultural city of Karlsruhe. Together with renowned museums and cultural institutions in Karlsruhe and the surrounding region, it creates a special art experience.
