Posted on

The 42nd edition of Arte Fiera, the most modern and contemporary art event in Italy is underway. Open to the public in the Bologna Fiere from February 2nd to 5th with a preview on February 1st , it is hosting 152 galleries plus 30 exhibitors linked to the worlds of publishing, graphics and creativity.
In her second year as artistic director, Angela Vettese has enriched the event with opportunities for study dedicated both to individual artists and to theoretical reflection.
In order to strengthen its relationship with the city of Bologna, a number of partnerships have been set up with organisations such as FICO, Cineteca, Teatro Comunale, museums and city foundations, the University and many private groups including the Golinelli Foundation which will present an immersive 3D experience at the show.
Among this year’s new features is the international conference curated by Angela Vettese with Clarissa Ricci and scheduled for 2
nd and 3rd February entitled “Tra mostra e fiera: entre chien et loup” and organized in collaboration with the IUAV University of Venice under the patronage of the University of Bologna. The meetings will be curated by Clarissa Ricci, Cristina Baldacci and Camilla Salvaneschi and will be attended by academics, artists, critics, curators, editors and other leading figures in the art sector.

The Main Section of the exhibition will see developments in the new Modernity section, intended not as modern art, but as current affairs. Inside the 11 stands visitors will have the chance to admire small personal exhibitions of artists deserving a closer look. The intention is to create a link between artists who differ in age, nationality and artistic movement but who are united by the common thread of the particular relevance that distinguishes their work and the courage of those gallery owners who have decided to present them. Arte Fiera 2018 offers no distinction between modern and contemporary with the exception of the Nueva Vista group. Sections and genres are arbitrarily mixed with the intention of creating a journey of both vision and interest in which the works of yesterday and today interact in harmony.

The link with the city is further strengthened with the POLIS section. POLIS/ARTWORKS includes installations in suggestive and unexpected spaces in the city and is curated by Angela Vettese with coordination by Nicolas Ballario and in collaboration with a number of galleries participating in Arte Fiera. POLIS/CINEMA, La comunità che viene edited by Mark Nash is a review of films held both at the event and at MAMbo, reflecting on the communist and post-communist identity of a large part of both Bolognese and Italian culture.
POLIS / SPECIAL PROJECTS: PERFORMING THE GALLERY, a project curated by Chiara Vecchiarelli explores the operational potential of performance in the contemporary cultural, political and economic context while POLIS/BBQ, coordinated by Mia D. Suppiej is a project that connects the work of
artist run space and non-profit spaces created in recent years in Bologna and offers a glimpse of the independent contemporary art scene in the city.
