A Walk Through The Art: Arte Fiera 2016

Arte Fiera 2016 celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. Bologna’s contemporary art fair (January 29 to February 1st, 2016) hosted 222 exhibitors, 30% more than 2 years ago.

We made a photographic walk-through of Arte Fiera 2016, with exhibition views of selected artwork and galleries on show inside the art fair, and at venues around Bologna.

Winners of Arte Fiera Under 40 have been announced: Valerio Rocco Orlando (Bid Project Gallery, Milano), José Angelino (Alessandra Bonomo, Roma), Guglielmo Castelli (Francesca Antonini Arte Contemporanea), Valentina Miorandi (Boccanera). Their artwork will be on show at Bologna’s Pinacoteca until March 28.
The jury comprised Lorenzo Sassoli de Bianchi (head of jury), Francesco Bonami (curator and critic), Luca Lo Pinto (curator at Kunsthalle Vienna), Laura Carlini Fanfogna (director at Istituzione Bologna Musei), Giacinto Di Pietrantonio (director at GAMEC Bergamo), Hou Hanru (director at MAXXI di Roma) and Alberto Salvadori (director at Museo Marino Marini).
