MILAN 2019 PROGRAMME

 

Young girl enjoying workshop at Milan fair 2018

 

OPENING NIGHT

Thursday 24 January, 6 – 10pm (by invitation or online presale)

Lose yourself in art, at the Opening Night of Affordable Art Fair Milan 2019. Soak up the atmosphere at the preview event, where you will discover 85 local, national and international galleries who will be showcasing 1000s of artworks from both emerging and well-loved names.

Treat yourself to a creative night out, with live artist demonstrations and a pumping DJ set. Imbibe the best while perusing art - select between Mediterranean gin tasting from Gin Mare, or perhaps sample some Latin flavours with cocktails from Rum Diplomatico, alternatively why not take advantage of our exclusive refreshment for the Opening Night and enjoy a Mais Amor Cerveja by Temakinho. After all those delicious drinks, don’t forget to sample the haute patisserie excellence from Maestro Sal De Riso.

 

ART TO DATE

Friday 25 January, 6 – 9pm

It is said, that during a first date, if the menu includes sushi the chance of a second date increases exponentially! So naturally, if the your date takes place at the Affordable Art Fair, and the menu includes exciting Japanese-Brazilian cusine from Temakinho, combined with the delicious cocktails of Compagnia dei Caraibi, you'll end the evening happily committed forever. Well, maybe "forever" is taking it a bit too far... but a beautiful evening is almost guarenteed, as even if you visit the alone, your artwork soul mate can still be found at the fair.
