Art Fair Leipzig 2017Welcome!
T he contemporary Art Fair Leipzig 2017 will take place from the 16th until the 19th of November. For its third event, the venue of the art fair will change to the project area "GaraGe" in Plagwitz, Leipzigs famous arts and crafts district.
Equal parts challenge and opportunity, the organizers are thrilled to move the fair to an environment bustling with young and renowned artists - and with the "GaraGe", right in the districts center, as venue, there’s no doubt it’ll be an enormous success.
In the immediate vicinity of Leipzig's ‘Baumwollspinnerei’ (a former cotton factory brought back to life), the ‘Kunstkraftwerk’ (an event and exhibition center within old factory walls) and the ‘Westwerk’ (a living and working space for young artists, programmers, etc.), the Kunstmesse Leipzig 2017 now takes place in Leipzigs renowned cultural-bohemian heart. With the ‘Baumwollspinnerei’ already attracting international artists, galleries and art collectors, it’ll be interesting to see how domestic artists and the exhibitors of the art fair will interact, influence and inspire each other, as well as urban cultural life in Leipzig.
