Kölner Liste 2018 - Showcasing Emerging Contemporary Art at Affordable Prices

April 16, 2018

A satellite fair of Art Cologne, the KÖLNER LISTE presents a truly unique art-viewing experience. Offering fresh, young art at low prices, it is a must-see event for everyone who would rather buy and bring home their favorite piece, not just marvel at exclusive art.

Returning to XPOST Köln this April, the fifth edition of the fair will fill the venue with a wide spectrum of emerging contemporary art from recognized artists and interesting newcomers at affordable prices. Bringing together a remarkable selection of galleries, KÖLNER LISTE 2018 will serve as a meeting place for both art collectors and enthusiasts.

This edition of the fair will bring together 108 exhibitors that will present newest pieces and current programs. Showcasing a stunning collection of art in a stimulating, friendly and communicative atmosphere, the fair has something for all tastes and budgets. Including a diversity of objects and media, it will feature painting, sculpture, graphic prints, mixed media, installations, video art and even performance. The highlights include sections dedicated to Urban Art and photography. Visitors can expect some interdisciplinary, experimental and surprising art.
