    Information

    Quickly strengthening the international calendar of art events, ARTE LISBOA has been declared a great event attracting more than 20.000 visitors annually.  ARTE LISBOA is recognized as a Fair of high quality with the presence of the best national and international galleries and is taking place in a country experiencing great artistic results mixing established artists such as Helena Almeida, Pedro Cabrita Reis and Julião Sarmento with a powerful generation of multidisciplinary and world artists.

    ARTE LISBOA bodes exceptionally well for the future.  The Fair clearly shows the growing interest of the local private contemporary art sector in a country where the private collector is directed more and more toward new creations, following the road marked by important initiatives such as the Museu Colecção Berardo in the Centro Cultural de Belém or the Banco Espírito Santo which invests in contemporary photography.

    The presence of the Portuguese galleries at ARTE LISBOA have allowed for the maturity and strengthening of the Fair. The event is the only one of its type in Portugal and attracts exhibitors from Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Brazil, Mozambique, Korea and especially Spain, confirming the existence of an Iberian contemporary art market.

    In past editions, ARTE LISBOA successfully explored its role turning the Fair into a meeting point for the organization of cycles of debates bringing together art critics, museum directors, exhibition curators, international artists and gallery owners, or Commissioned Programs with curators of renowned international fame such as Isabel Carlos, Paco Barragán, Óscar Alonso Molina and Filipa Oliveira.

    Its main challenge will be to make its mark amongst the dense calendar of events and Fairs devoted to contemporary art. The idiosyncratic beauty of the city of Lisbon and its cultural and gastronomical richness can also complement your visit to ARTE LISBOA throughout the warm days of November, while the rest of Europe is overcome by the cold weather.
