Forum Messe Frankfurt, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, 60327 Frankfurt am Main
In 2018 the Discovery Art Fair presented for the first time a broad spectrum of emerging contemporary art in the financial capital of Frankfurt am Main. On the first weekend of November the Forum exhibition hall located on the Frankfurt fairgrounds was filled with fresh contemporary art at affordable prices. For the premiere of the art fair, the organizers were presenting 75 exhibitors from 14 countries and welcomed more than 10,000 visitors.
The Discovery Art Fair grants a multifaceted offer to art lovers and art interested, young and established collectors, but also for first-time buyers. From large-scale pieces to miniature editions in pocket-size format, the visitors will enjoy an abundance of classical paintings, drawings and graphic prints as well as sculptures, installations, mixed-media pieces or video art. The exhibition extends its focus into the fields of photography and urban art, disciplines brimming with innovative works today represented in many renowned galleries around the world. Such an immense variety of styles and subjects displayed at the Discovery Art Fair promises a special experience for all, including artists, art dealers and visitors.
Along with the variety of art, the quality of works presented is equally important. Imbued with an abundance of styles and visual expressions, the exhibited art work is carefully selected by the curators of the fair especially for this occasion. Thus a selection of works is made that reflects the incredible dynamic of the city of Frankfurt and combines it with a desire to present art that is truly affordable for every collector.
More than just an Art Fair
The Discovery Art Fair is more than a brand new art fair in Frankfurt/Main. Visitors are granted an opportunity to enter a dialogue with international artists in a relaxed, communicative atmosphere and to acquire original art for their walls at home. In addition to the classical gallery programs, the fair provides a platform to new models of art presentation. Coming into direct contact with temporary pop-up galleries, producers’ galleries, art dealers and artists, the visitors enter an atmosphere coated in art enthusiasm and most of all, filled with good, fresh authentic art.
Every year tens of thousands art enthusiasts visit our long-established Discovery Art Fairs in Berlin, now in its 15th year, and in Cologne, now in its 6th year, to broaden their knowledge of the contemporary art scene and to acquire cutting-edge works that have just been created in the studios. Many of the artworks that had their debut at our fairs found their way into world-renowned collections, art spaces and institutions around the world.
Frankfurt – a history rich with culture and commerce
Its high reputation in terms of art makes the business metropolis Frankfurt the ideal, third location of the Discovery Art Fair. Frankfurt is home to around 60 museums, large and small, which are visited by over two million people each year, making it one of Germany’s top cities and travel destinations. Frankfurt/Main is an inherently modern city with its view firmly set to the future but rooted in a rich history and cultural heritage gave rise to institutions such as the MMK Museum of Modern Art, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt or the collection of Städel Museum. Due to the impressive variety of museums and galleries, renowned collections, the Städel School of Fine Arts, but also through a lively off-scene, Frankfurt has rightly earned a reputation as a city of art.
Therefore, the Discovery Art Fair team is particularly pleased to offer the interested art public of the Rhine-Main region an art and cultural experience of a special kind.
