Nearly two hundred galleries from around the world participate every year. In addition to the fair, Artissima is also composed of three art sections, headed by a board of international curators and museum directors, devoted to emerging artists, performances and rediscovering the great pioneers of contemporary art.
– Walkie Talkies: Itinerant and informal conversations around the booths led by exceptional guides: pairs of curators and collectors in dialogue accompany the public around the fair offering their point of view on galleries, artworks and artists.
– What is Experimental: a series of talks curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol featuring curators of international non-profit or institutional spaces in debate on this topic.
– Book Corner: Book and catalogue presentations by institutions, galleries and publishers, with the participation of artists, museum directors, curators, critics and experts.
