Artissima is a year-round research project that involves a team of leading curators and museum directors from around the world. The quality of its exhibition programming, the avant-garde nature of the curatorial proposals, the attentive presentations and the wide-ranging geographical provenance of the artists presented all reflect the vision and invaluable contribution of these highly regarded professionals.

In the year leading up to the fair, Artissima’s staff is enhanced by an extended international panel, which includes more than 40 curators who collaborate actively with the fair: on the selection committees, in the numerous prize juries, in the exhibition initiatives and in additional events such as talks and presentations.

Artissima’s comprehensive curatorial team therefore contributes to the development of a dynamic, inclusive and avant-garde perspective on the art world which ensures that collectors are offered the highest quality artworks as well as an extraordinary opportunity for discovery.

Thanks our contributing curators, the 20,000 square meters of the exhibition hall extend for thousands of kilometres, from Brazil to China, Colombia to Norway, North to South Africa, Poland to Lebanon, California to the Middle East.
