Art Market Budapest 2012
The first edition of Art Market Budapest, Central and Eastern Europe’s emerging contemporary art fair, opened in October 2011. The successes of the first year, over ten thousand visitors, overbooking by interested exhibitors, the international attention and professional recognition, clearly indicate that there is demand in the art world and by the wider audience for this new element of the international art scene. Professionals and art-lovers received with interest and appreciation the art fair that concentrates on the art of the Central and Eastern European region.
As Nicola Trezzi, US Editor of Flash Art International and Curator of the Prague Biennial, summarized: ”Art Market Budapest is not just an art fair: it is a gathering, a place for people to meet, discuss and exchange information about an artistic community which is very sophisticated and still to be discovered…”
Art Market Budapest is at once a cultural, sociological and social event, which renders contemporary art visible and accessible to observers, and to the local and worldwide professional audience, providing a context within which art can be discussed and ideas exchanged. This unique event aspires to host the most popular contemporary art event in Eastern Europe as a recognized and appreciated element of the global art scene.
Art Market Budapest has quickly become one of the decisive elements of Central and Eastern European art, aiming to increase the worldwide level of appreciation for, and interest in, contemporary art and artists of this unique geographical and historic region. We look forward to welcoming you as exhibitor, visitor or partner at what we anticipate to be a truly memorable event. For the days of the fair, Budapest will be the center and capital of contemporary art in Central and Eastern Europe.
