Arte Fiera was the first art fair of its kind in Italy (1974) and one of the first in Europe. A vibrant cultural and artistic community attends the event. The 2018 edition is the ideal opportunity for artists, critics, editors to re-unite and discuss a recent and growing phenomenon, the hybridization between exhibitions and fairs, which are tending to overlap more frequently. A topic which, despite growing interest, is covered very little by scholars. This is perhaps due to the discomfort between the association of art to the market.

The art fairs’ current global outreach and their diversity seem unprecedented, yet they have a long history that goes back at least to the early modern period. This conference of the recently founded International Art Market Studies Association aims to elucidate the art fair’s phenomenal evolutions through a multi-disciplinary approach.
