After 11 years in the business, St-Art, the Strasbourg Fair of Contemporary Art has well and truly found its own identity, specificity, public and atmosphere.
St-Art is above all:
A European Fair
Strasbourg is the crossroads of Europe with the Council of Europe and the European Parliament, and Alsace is a region of France renowned for its devotion to promoting culture.
St-Art is pursuing its aim of welcoming 50 % of galleries from other European countries, and each year pays homage to a particular country: Germany in 2005, Italy in 2006, Benelux and Spain in 2007.
A Fair focusing on creativity
St-Art welcomes renowned gallery owners presenting the major currents in contemporary art over the last fifty years and reserves a choice site for galleries promoting emerging talents – tomorrow's valued artists.
A space called "New Profile" brings together European galleries presenting the most creative artists at affordable prices.
St-Art styles itself as a Fair for discovering and rediscovering.
A quality Fair full of diversity
Assisted by a consultative committee, Strasbourg Evénements has set itself the task of improving the quality of the exhibition spaces. An ethics charter lays down the exhibitors' major obligations.
All modes and fields of expression are welcome at St-Art. This diversity meets the expectations of the Fair's public. All the traditional forms of artistic expression such as painting, sculpture and drawing are on display, alongside photography, video, performance art, publishing and Studio Glass.
A friendly Fair
Strasbourg Evénements constantly focuses on promoting a friendly atmosphere at the Fair. With its 95 galleries, the Fair maintains a dimension that enables visitors to remain interested and involved throughout.
With its loyal core of 30,000 visitors, backed up by a greater number of Parisians with the opening of the high speed TGV railway line, the Fair represents a great opportunity for exhibitors.
Rest areas conceived by designers, quality catering, a Champagne bar, alternative events like performance art, round tables and various partnerships with cultural institutions, all add up to a highly attractive Fair for art-lovers everywhere.
