From September 21st to 25th, the International Art Fair ART MOSCOW, the principal annual event on the Russian art calendar focusing on contemporary art, will be held at the Central House of Artists.
ART MOSCOW is held annually, presenting to the public new works, names and galleries and each year it develops and evolves. This year the number of specialists in the Expert Council increased with the introduction of international professionals from Great Britain (Rachael Barrett) and Germany (Anne Maier). The structure of the exposition area has also been altered. Following the international model, ART MOSCOW now offers a system of equal exposition area. Galleries are offered to stand out for the quality of their expositions but not for their size. During the build up to the 2011 ART MOSCOW, presentations have taken place at other key international art events in Berlin, Cologne, London, Madrid and Basel. This has resulted in an increased number of international exhibitors and an expanding pool of international mass-media interest.
This year over 40 national and international galleries introduce their expositions at the 15th ART MOSCOW Fair.
