Discovery Art Fair Frankfurt

31 Oct. - 03 Nov. 2024 | The discovery fair for contemporary art

Launched in 2018, the Discovery Art Fair, an annual art fair held in November, has established itself as a vibrant platform for contemporary art in Frankfurt am Main. Hosted by The Working Smarter Group GmbH, this event takes place in the impressive forum of Messe Frankfurt, a central location known for its architectural significance and proximity to the main train station, easily accessible by public transport. Additional conveniences such as the Messeturm parking garage and barrier-free access ensure a comfortable experience for all visitors..

The fair serves as a gathering point for a wide array of art world participants – from new and established collectors to art enthusiasts and novices. A core goal of the Discovery Art Fair is to make a broad spectrum of art forms accessible, showcasing works ranging from large-scale paintings and classic drawings to photography, graphic prints, sculptures, installations, and the dynamic fields of street and urban art.

At its heart is contemporary art, a genre distinguished by its diversity in technique, medium, and perspective, engaging with current cultural, social, and political issues. This form of art often reflects and comments on contemporary events, making it especially relevant for a modern audience.

However, the Discovery Art Fair goes beyond the role of a traditional art fair. It emphasizes interaction and the experience of art in a relaxed, communicative atmosphere. Visitors have the unique opportunity to engage directly with international artists, exchange ideas, and gain insights into creative processes. This approach encourages the purchase and support of artists and their works, with the fair also offering artworks for various budgets.

A distinctive feature of the fair is its commitment to innovation in the presentation and marketing of art. Stepping away from classic gallery programs, it provides a forum for artistic expressions that seek new ways to reach and resonate with a wider audience.

In its entirety, the Discovery Art Fair in Frankfurt am Main offers a holistic, dynamic art event that expands the boundaries of the traditional art market and brings together a diverse community of creators and art aficionados.

The first day of the trade fair is usually reserved for trade visitors and journalists.

The Discovery Art Fair will take place on 4 days from Thursday, 31. October to Sunday, 03. November 2024 in Frankfurt.
