International contemporary art fair

art3f is shifting the boundaries of traditional contemporary art trade fairs by giving these cultural events back their warm, human side.
A great restaurant offers quality catering and a wonderful selection of wines, a jazzy ambiance, live performances and a happening zone reserved for children’s creativity: there are this many reasons to discover art as a family.

art3f Metz


an area for children's self expression

With our loyal partner Le Géant Des Beaux Arts.

A happening zone especially devoted to your little angels’ creativity will end up making your visit unforgettable.

Entrusting paintbrushes, other brushes, colours and canvases to the young is now part of art3f fairs’ identity. Thanks to our loyal partner Le Géant Des Beaux Arts, budding artists can enjoy at their leisure this area reserved for their imaginations.

These activities are free and supervised by professionals. If children remain under their parents’ supervision, the adults can enjoy a relaxing break at the bar in the meantime or… give in to a favourite from among the one hundred or so artists and galleries present.

Bar & Catering

The large central bar is a truly friendly space right in the fair’s heart. With its large terrace, its gourmet dishes, its characterful wines chosen and served by a sommelier and its plethora of cold drinks, it hosts the official preview in a jazzy atmosphere and offers, at any time, its gourmet suggestions: mixed platters, pasta, oysters, tapas, salads…something to fulfill foodies and epicures! When you take a break here you are guaranteed a special time with family or friends.

Share emotions with artists and galleries

Art lovers and collectors alike will have the opportunity to meet and share their love of art with artists mostly selected by our committee (art galleries will also be there). It sure is a unique opportunity to find new talents and perhaps discover tomorrow’s stars! Among these talented artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramists), art3f's discoveries, the young international contemporary guard, there will also be installed artists and prestigious art works. Lots of emotions and sharing to come!

You would like to expose on a art3f show

As of 11 July 2020, all fairs with no more than 5000 people at a same time will be able to open again.
The 1000 limit has been recently raised to 5000. Fairs welcoming more than 5,000 people will have to wait until September.

However, to our knowledge, no contemporary art fair can claim welcoming more than 5000 visitors at the same time.
All our visitors will be able to visit our fairs!
While this 5000-person capacity may be prohibitive for some major Parisian fairs such as the agriculture or automobile ones, art3f will be able to open its doors at the Monaco show.

We still have to follow and put in place sanitary measures which might be lightened as of end of august.
Of course we will keep you informed and guarantee you an opening under optimal conditions.
