Over 90 exhibitors from eleven different countries gather in Lugano from September 20th to 23rd. These days, the stage light belongs to the paper (and the work with it). Everything revolves around drawings and prints, photographs and watercolors, from almost antique to ultra-modern. The fair is a far-reaching resume of various techniques, languages and periods, with and in which the paper was used as an art format.
Looking back on two successful events in the last two years, the organizers - Lobo Swiss and Luigi Belluzi - have improved and expanded the format. In addition to the main section, where 71 galleries are exhibiting their works, there is an "emergent" section in which eleven galleries exhibit works by young up-and-coming artists. Also new is a calendar of events, which lures with events that illuminate various aspects and innovations around working with paper.
A special novelty is the VIP lounge . For all the exhibitions and events in the main exhibition, it is also possible to view as a VIP guest the photography exhibition "Viaggio nel Tempo Un Racconto per immagine", which deals with the so-called " Fotografia italiana ". In addition, the small museum for photographs from the pre-digital period can be visited exclusively.
All these and many more exciting exhibitions make you curious and invite you to Lugano. An art fair that is worth the trip.
