ARTANKARA is an international contemporary art fair and a platform to strengthen and develop art environment and art market of the region and neighboring countries.
The 9th edition of the fair will take place between March 9 - 12, 2023 at ATO Congresium. Works of Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Video and Digital Art, Installations and many other forms of artistic expression, the result of a careful selection by the Selection Committee, will be presented at the fair.
ARTANKARA along with gathering a significantly enhanced list of emerging and established galleries, artists, art-lovers and art-collectors from Turkey and abroad, endeavors to re-make Ankara ‘’the capital of art as well’’, as it used to be upon foundation of the Republic.
This year the sub-theme of the fair will be again ’’ART GOES TO WORK’’, which converts the business world and art gathering into significant and important synergy.
Facts and figures of the previous editions of ARTANKARA (2022):
The fair, which was realized with 102 participants and more than 1,000 artists and their over 4,500 works in 11,000 m2, took its place among the most visited fairs after the pandemic process with 54 thousand visitors. Artists from a wide variety of nationalities, from Nigeria to Germany, Korea to Russia, and Egypt, took part in the fair where there were physically 120 artists from 33 countries. Speaking about ArtAnkara, which broke a record by surpassing the number of visitors in 2019, Atis Fairs Chairman of the Board Bilgin Aygül expressed their satisfaction with the intense interest shown in the fair. “After the pandemic announced on the second day of the fair in 2020, ArtAnkara, which lost 65% of visitors compared to the previous year, was visited by 2 8,000 people in 2021 with an increase of 55%. But the numbers we see today are much more satisfying. 54 thousand art lovers came together with enthusiasm at the 8th International Contemporary Art Fair. We share this happiness on behalf of our artists and participating countries.
