The visitors will have an opportunity to browse dedicated spaces for galleries, solo artists and group exhibitions showcasing a diversity of art from around the world, including painting, drawing, calligraphy, printmaking, sculpture, photography and digital art.

The fourth edition of the fair will present more than 300 individual artists and galleries from five continents featuring more than 4,000 original contemporary artworks priced between USD 100 to USD 20,000.

Held under the tagline Live it, Love it, Buy it, the fair will offer a completely unique proposition in the domestic and regional art scene in a chic and urban atmosphere. It will be a meeting point for galleries, dealers, artists, art lovers, corporate buyers, private collectors, architects, interior designers and VIPs alike.
