The Main Section brings together outstanding galleries from the international art world: established names offer collectors and art lovers an event of the highest quality.
Monologue/Dialogue is reserved to emerging galleries or galleries with an experimental approach applying with either a monographic booth or with works of 2 artists in dialogue.
The New Entries section presents the most interesting emerging galleries from the international art scene, that have been open less than 5 years and taking part in Artissima for the first time.
Art Spaces & Editions is a special section of Artissima exclusively devoted to galleries and non-profit spaces presenting editions, prints and multiples by contemporary artists.
Disegni is the only section in Italian art fairs dedicated to this medium. It presents projects conceived as solo shows that enhance the authenticity and autonomy of the work on paper. The section promotes the uniqueness of the drawing, its innate immediacy, being the first translation of the artist’s idea and the only unfiltered access to his creative process.
Disegni will be hosted in the fair pavilion and on the Artissima Voice Over platform with an in-depth presentation.

Present Future is the section of Artissima that showcases emerging talents, preferably less than 40 years old. The artists, presented by their reference galleries, are selected on the basis of a specific project. The section features monographic projects with the goal of shedding light on new, more significant and cutting-edge trends on the international art scene.
Present Future will be hosted in the fair pavilion and on the Artissima Voice Over platform with an in-depth presentation.

Back to the Future features monographic projects by contemporary art pioneers whose work played a key role in art history. The section gathers works realised from 1950 to 1979 and favours geographical areas in which artists have been less visible – be it due to their gender, cultural and political affiliations. Particular attention is dedicated to work developed in marginal and diasporic contexts.
