Aware that times have changed, at ARTIST we have also redefined the concept of “Art Fair”, bringing the artist and his work closer to the public in a setting where the traditional mediation barriers of the art market disappear. A stage that recovers the protagonism of the artist and that facilitates his closeness to the viewer. A revolutionary model of self-representation to achieve one of the objectives of the Fair: ART WITHOUT LIMITS.

2020 Edition | 15-20 December 2020

II Edition of the Contemporary Art Fair ARTIST Madrid

We begin this new edition, with the revolution that involves two new projects: Artist Digital Fair and Artist Experience. We continue with our “zero commission” philosophy. The artist or gallery sells directly to the public, without any intermediation, creating that direct loyalty between client, artist or gallery.

We offer notoriety to both the artist, galleries that feature the artist, as well as the public that comes to contemporary art, through exhibitions in exclusive rooms, as well as digital level in the new platforms of: Artist Digital Fair, facing the new reality of confinement that we live, to promote artists, galleries and contemporary art, also from their homes.

In the new ARTIST edition we will have, together with our artists, the painting of the genius Rubens, a 17th century painter, owned by the Carlos Amberes Foundation. We count with the best digital tools from virtual exhibitions, to diffusion in networks and specialized marketing in the promotion of the artist, as well as in the approach of the public to the contemporary art.

From the Contemporary Art Fair Artist we recover the figure of the artist and his relevance on the contemporary art scene. Bringing you closer to his work and his person, through a model of self-representation or through Art Galleries that share with us the same need: “Bringing the artist closer to the public”. We support a new culture of collecting for art lovers, aimed at both the consolidated collector and those who are accessing this exciting world of contemporary art for the first time, and who can understand it with simple explanations. Helping society to perceive the excellence of art with a closeness, which flees from the stereotypes of recent times.

Join the new experience we call : “ARTIST experience”

In the face of the new reality of crisis that many people are experiencing, we offer the possibility to artists, so that they can voluntarily offer part of the value of the sale of their works, to help charities and families in need,… contributing art not only as something sensitive, which provides human values, but also on a practical level, economically. Our organization ARTIST, which has artists who exhibit, will do so.

A new way of experiencing art

Bringing the public closer to the Artist

From ARTIST we promote a new culture of collectionism, which shortens the distance between artist and viewer, affecting a substantial improvement in acquisition prices of works and therefore boosting the art market. An occasion to start collecting, discovering the talent of new and also consecrated artistic values.

A new culture of collectionism

ARTIST's name

Why the Red Dot in our logo

The name ARTIST, because of its global meaning and intelligible in any language, was the ideal word to reflect our sensitivity towards the protagonist of the Fair: the Artist. But we also included the longed-for ``red dot``, which indicates ``acquired work``. Because we know and feel what this means for the artist, not so much in economic terms (as well), but above all because of the satisfaction of having connected with the public's sensitivity and sharing with it a part of its personal and creative dimension. So whenever you see the 'red dot' in ARTIST, we will be closer to achieving our goal: bringing the audience closer to the artist.
