As the only fair in Italy exclusively devoted to contemporary art, Artissima welcomes over 55,000 visitors with a programme that maintains the fair’s experimental and avant-garde identity while proposing original ideas in response to the stimuli generated by the most interesting developments of our time.

Internationally renowned for its focus on pioneering practices, and as a launching pad for up-and-coming artists and galleries, Artissima is a unique event that attracts a large audience of collectors, sector professionals and art lovers every year. With each edition, the fair confirms itself as an international favourite for curators, directors of art institutions and foundations, as well as the patrons of museums from all over the world who are involved in various ways in its programme.

The theme for Artissima’s 26th edition is the duality of desire/censorship. The objective is to stimulate timely and varied reflections on the power of the image: contemporary ambitions and utopias, the impulses that shape our times, and the perspectives and narratives that cross them.

The vitality of Artissima and its innovative force resonates throughout the city, thanks to the many cultural projects made in collaboration with public institutions, museums, foundations and galleries across the region.

Through the fair and these collaborations, Artissima confirms its role in contributing to the growth of the Italian contemporary art market, stimulating and supporting collectors with an eye on innovation, and a continuously evolving critical and curatorial vision.
