No fair would be complete without festivities! On Thursday 11 November we will open until 10pm with our Late View. Come along to the Late View to enjoy a glass of wine and relax while browsing this year’s exhibition. This is the best time to visit the fair if you want to avoid prams and the weekend rush!
PUBLIC GUIDED TOURS
Discover hidden art gems that you wouldn’t spot at first glance, meet artists and gallerists, and listen to the stories behind the artworks: during this year’s fair we’ll be offering free public guided tours, everyday at 2pm and 4pm. Simply go to the meeting place, which is our Information Desk, to join a tour.
CURATOR-LED GUIDED TOURS
Additionally, there will be three themed, curator-led guided tours. Join us on Thursday 11 November at 5pm on a tour through the ‘Kunstpark’ by Fair Manager Hannah Weber-Heidenfels and on Friday 12 November on a ‘Emerging Artist 2021’ tour at 4pm and a ‘Kunst unter 500€’ tour at 5pm by Fair Director Oliver Lähndorf.
This year we’re delighted to present a solo Emerging Artist show by Hamburg based artist Arnaldo González. Having grown up in Caracas, Venezuela, Arnaldo went on to study Fine Arts in Venezuela and Germany. Since 2014 he has been living and working in Hamburg. Arnaldo is known for his large-scale works including drawing, painting and video installations, in which he explores migration, identity and psycho-geographic space. The inner and outer diaspora is at the center of his works. One not to be missed.
For the 2021 edition of Affordable Art Fair Hamburg, we’ll be expanding the size of the fair, in line with our Safe Fair Policies, to a huge 9,000m² venue! Within our new larger space, for the first time we’ll be installing a 1,800m² big curated ‘Kunstpark’. With art, trees, benches and a cafébar, we want to bring you a new space to meet inside the venue to relax and discover a varied range of artworks including installations, sculptures, conceptual art, and augmented reality – all of which you would not normally expect to see at the fair.
As always, we’ll offer a wrapping and packing service for all artworks purchased at the Hamburg Fair ensuring that our collectors are able to take their newly acquired works home safely. The wrapping station is located directly near the exit and will be open throughout the fair.
