of contemporary art fairs
In order to offer the public artistic events that are at the same time original, affordable and qualitative, art3f shakes up the codes of traditional contemporary art fairs by favoring direct relationship between the artists and their public.
Since 2012, each year, Art3f has been visiting more than fifteen French and European cities by offering artists and galleries, gathered in a same place, the possibility to take advantage of the buying dynamics of art fairs that are now popular with the general public.
FROM A HUMAN ADVENTURE IN MULHOUSE TO THE EUROPEAN LEADER IN CONTEMPORARY ART FAIRS
Born from the somewhat crazy idea of friends and co-workers fascinated by art, the art3f fair and the same name company were born in 2012 and have been growing at an astounding pace ever since.
With a first edition well beyond our expectations and beating all statistics, art3f has not stopped growing and is now exported in France and in Europe, with yearly 18 fairs and exhibitions , all of them being managed by the small Mulhouse-based company that now has all the makings of a big one!
If the company develops its expertise outside its own borders, art3f remains more than ever faithful to its convictions and to what made it successful: to allow everyone, art specialist, collector, neophyte, the curious, the dreamers or all at once, to access this precious breath of oxygen and space of dream that art represents today in our modern societies.
Combined fairs open to international galleries and artists, all representative of the contemporary art landscape and its current trends. Each exhibitor is selected by an independent committee composed of professionals of art.
Attractive and welcoming events for visitors whether they are art connoisseurs, collectors or neophytes. A bar-restaurant offering quality food at all hours, a jazzy atmosphere at vernissage opening evenings animated with live music, a happening zone reserved for the creativity of children* are all reasons for the public to discover art with their families.
* Happening zone temporarily suspended following the COVID
A unique exhibition concept with a unique topography, an original layout of the stands, wide aisles, 3-meter-high hanging partitions featuring three different brushed cotton colors and an optimal lighting system equipped with LED spotlights of the latest generation in order to offer the artworks a perfect readability.
