Fine Art Fair Frankfurt

The Rolls Royce of art fairs

After many successful years, the ART FRANKFURT art fair was no longer cutting-edge. A relaunch was urgently needed. On behalf of Messe Frankfurt, we worked as part of a curatorial team with a Frankfurt gallery owner – and the new FINE ART FAIR FRANKFURT was born.

This curated fair, the first of its kind, took the form of an exhibition. It was produced in collaboration with hand-picked galleries of international standing and had a different theme each year.

In 2005 each of the galleries was asked to put together a monographic exhibition on the work of a single artist. In 2006 the central theme was ‘sculpture’, and the fair was dedicated exclusively to this branch of the arts, including performances and installations.
