The exhibition sections

Main section

Main is the heart of the event showcasing the modern and contemporary art galleries – ranging from the renowned to mid-career to emerging – that share a qualified focus on Italian and international artists.


Curated by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio

The Introduction section is one of the new features of the 2021 edition of ArtVerona. Curated by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, proposes six young galleries picked by six of the most important and acclaimed Italian art galleries that have followed the activities of their younger counterparts and have supported their professional growth through dialogue, exchange or guidance. Six situations that are different one from the other but that have in common the intergenerational transmission of knowledge typical of the art system and that results in new approaches and research.


The new section, Evolution, is intended for galleries working with artists capable of developing their research through artificial intelligence, social networks, robotics, video games, 3D animation, Coding, Big Data and nanotechnologies.


Next is the space dedicated to those galleries that present and promote up to three young talents, allowing visitors to discover today’s most innovative artistic languages.


In Solo, the focus is on eight open spaces provided to galleries to showcase an Italian artist with a monographic exhibition.


Curated by Giulia Floris

LAB1 is the new chapter dedicated to artist residencies and non-profit experimental projects taking place in Italy with regard to contemporary art and to their work with other sectors of the system, curated by Giulia Floris. Each one of the seven spaces invited has been asked to develop a project for the Fair in dialogue with an institutional artist residency program ongoing in Italy. The idea of involving artist residency as partner institutions stems from the fundamental concepts of hospitality and of exploration that underlie them.


Curated by Ginevra Bria

Curated by Ginevra Bria, #Pages invites six trade magazines to illustrate their story, the role of art critique, of information and of connections with the artists, immersed in the Italian art system, through a monographic curatorship exhibition, set up in six separate spaces. The magazines selected for the 2021 edition of ArtVerona are: Archivio, Exibart, ISIT.magazine, Kabul, Perimetro and TBD ULTRAMAGAZINE.
