Introduction

ART THESSALONIKI INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR
 

What makes Art-Thessaloniki Fair so special? What makes it different from other art events?

Art-Thessaloniki is on the one hand a marketing platform for galleries, art publishers and other institutions, on the other hand it is a cultural partner. First and foremost, the Art-Thessaloniki enables contacts for all participants at eye level. As a national, European and non-European partner, we not only enable intensive contacts with collectors who are often not present at the mainstream art fairs (e.g., from the Balkans, the Turkic states, from Russia or China and the USA). We offer by involving museums and trade associations, the invaluable direct exchange between the exhibitors about art and collecting activities.

Art-Thessaloniki - is an international cultural family that is constantly growing full of energy and enthusiasm. We take care of it in a very practical way with individual support for the participants by the art director and his team, who are always present to make your participation a multiple success. Art Thessaloniki is right in the center of the town. TIF HELEXPO pavilions are located not far from the famous White Tower, near the attracting sea promenade.

We offer 24-hour security, large distances between stands (8-9 m), separate storage space for each gallery and last but not least, free parking. We enable as well an all-inclusive insurance service from our partner Karavias art insurance, so that your treasures are fully insured from the day of assembly to the day of dismantling.

During the fair, we offer a professional curated program with installations, performances, honoring artists, museum exhibitions at the fair, collectors' exhibitions. We give the opportunity to young artists, up to 33 years old, to exhibit in individual booths after the announcement of an award competition.

We welcome you to Art-Thessaloniki and to our vibrant cultural city. It is a city of fresh ideas, a popular business and tourist destination with excellent hotel facilities. Our hotel partners offer to exhibitors, collectors and other visitor’s individual special conditions in cooperation with Art-Thessaloniki. The city is also a cultural and gastronomic jewel to be discovered, surrounded by other important and highly interesting sites such as Mount Athos with its monasteries, Mount Olympus or the royal tombs of Vergina.
