Art Safari 2015
The second edition of the first international art fair to be held in Romania, Art Safari Bucharest 2015, is now just a couple of days away. The event aims to become the most important art fair in Eastern Europe, bringing together a selection of modern and contemporary art from domestic and international artists and galleries. Last year, Art Safari gathered 79 exhibiting galleries and museums and showcased circa 3,000 artworks to 15,000 visitors. This year, more than 100 local and international galleries and art dealers will be featured.
The 2015 Art Safari Bucharest
Set in the monument building of Ciclop, located on Magheru Boulevard in the capital, Art Safari 2015 will be divided into one main section, dedicated to contemporary art, and two supporting sections, dedicated to modern artworks and the business of art. During the four days, the visitors can participate in a total of ten conferences dedicated to contemporary art and discover its artworks’ stories straight from their authors. Thematically divided in floors, the Bucharest fair will show Romanian modern art on the first floor, presented by major national museums; the second floor is reserved for established and emerging contemporary art galleries; the third floor will offer a selection of non-conventional art spaces and cultural institutions that will present sculptures, paintings, installations, video art and photography.

The visitors will have the opportunity to experience Romanian contemporary and modern art, together with galleries from Eastern and Western Europe. Also on view there will be a series of exhibitions organized with Romanian art institutions, with appointed themes. The main section of the fair will focus on the contemporary works of local and artists from abroad, both established and emerging.
