Frankfurt is getting a new art fair.
Kunst Messe Frankfurt 15 will take place at the Frankfurter Messe convention centre from 30 January to 3 February 2015. Around 150 galleries will take part across four categories: antiquities, non-European art, classic Modern art and contemporary art.
The fair is organised by Kunstmedien Gmbh, an art publisher based in Neu-Isenburg, near Frankfurt. Wolf Krey, who previously headed Kunst-Messe München, will direct the new fair.
The fair’s organisers say: “The revival of an internationally significant art fair in the financially strong and artistically highly developed location of Frankfurt can only be seen as a logical consequence.” Fine Art Fair Frankfurt, formerly Art Frankfurt, was cancelled in 2008.
