The excitement surrounding Art Prague, the 7th annual contemporary art fair, is a testament to the enduring interest of art lovers, both gallery owners and the public.
Over the past six years the art fair has undergone considerable advancement . The private galleries have been offering increasingly more sophisticated and diverse exhibitions and their presentations have become more self-confident.
The art fair makes an annual art „market“ available to the public – a diverse forum offering the latest developments in the visual arts with thousands of originals in one location.
Art connoisseurs and collectors are obviously much better aquainted with such an event but for the amateur or even for someone who is getting in touch with the art market for the first time, a visit to Art Prague is essential. But Art Prague is not only for the „beginner.“ It is for the experienced art lover or collector who does not have enough time to visit numerous exhibitions over the year. The art fair presents varied selection from the contemporary art scene, over the course of one week, under just one roof. And the continued enthusiasm of the visitor also enriches the work of the galleries throughout the season, as he follows what is going on in his favorite ones. Participating galleries have thus enjoyed the increasing attention of the public over the six years since the inauguration of Art Prague.
The location of Prague’s art fair within Europe and the growing interest of participants from abroad are of indisputable importance. Art Prague 2008 will feature a number of galleries from France, Germany, Italy and The Netherlands. The inevitable international connections and discussions in Prague have been most fruitful, resulting in several joint projects between Czech and foreign galleries fostering the presentation of Czech art abroad.
