Art Fair Málaga '17 call to artists and galleries until april 28th for its first edition, to be held on June 30th, July 1st and 2nd 2017 at the Trade Fair and Congress Center of Malaga. With an exhibition space of 6,000 m2 that can hold more than 400 artists and 50 art galleries, it will become the second largest International Contemporary Art Fair in Spain.
Art Fair Málaga '17 presents itself as an opportunity for those self presented artists who wish to make their work visible in the national and international art market, building a different proposal of inclusion, where professionals from the sector, galleries, institutions and collectors could participate, as well as those new artists that haven’t had yet the opportunity for their works to be recognized and valued in its whole magnitude. A space to establish a network of direct contacts between artists, galleries and the public, promoting a new culture of collecting, and recovering the old concept of Fair as a sales site.
According to their organizers the purpose of Art Fair Málaga ‘17 is to generate a space of visibility, because they understand that there are many and very good artists who have not yet the opportunity to introduce your work in the art market, do not have a gallery that represents them, and do not have access to art fairs, in Spain almost all the art fairs are just for galleries. On the other hand increasingly there are fewer galleries and many of them do not have access to the fairs, either for reasons of costs of participation, or because they are marginalized if they do not present a program of exhibitions that have previously attended. That’s why the Art Fair Málaga’s slogans are ‘WE BELIEVE IN THE OPPORTUNITIES, AND WE CREATE THEM’ and ‘YOUR WORK IS YOUR STORY, NOT YOUR CURRICULUM’.
Art Fair Málaga ' 17 hopes to attract more than 12,000 visitors in its first edition with the aim of bringing art to a wide audience that, besides touring the different stands, may participate in a program of talks, conferences, live painting, performances and recreational activities.
Art Fair Málaga '17 is aimed to galleries, collectives, and artists who work with painting, sculpture, drawing, original graphic works, photography, digital art, and other disciplines. The selection Committee appointed by Art Fair Málaga ' 17 will be responsible for rating and select the exhibition proposals. The quality of the works of the applicants will be valued mainly. The deadline for registration will be April 28th, 2017.
