Madrid’s UVNT Art Fair opened its eighth edition today in a new venue, Matadero Madrid, running in time with Madrid Art Week through March 10th. The new location has enabled the fair to expand its presence, welcoming 38 national and international galleries (up from 34 in 2023). The presentation reflects a variety of current art trends, with an emphasis on figuration and painting.

The new venue, 10 meters high and almost 3,000–square-meters in area, responds to the needs of UVNT’s guests and exhibitors. “We’ve been considering the idea of moving for some time,” said Sergio Sancho, founder and director of UVNT. “Among other things, some of the galleries were starting to need more space, and Matadero Madrid had what we were looking for,” he added.

The event will feature the annual UVNT Mahou Talks, a series of conversations and activations in a space designed by Studio Animal. Additionally, the fair continues its support for emerging galleries through the Young Galleries section, which is dedicated to making the art world more accessible to young galleries and collectors alike; exhibitors in this section include Berlín Galería and Voskhod Gallery.

MIART Milan’s Art Fair A Mirror To The Art World – James Payne

Published

In the hugely competitive world of art fairs, timing, as we know, is everything, but the location is equally important. Miart, Milan’s international modern and contemporary art fair, has ticked both boxes and takes place in April, just before the huge Milan Design Trade Fair (the largest trade fair of its kind in the world), and the Venice Biennale, a short train ride (or private jet) away, meaning the international VIP collectors are stopping off on their way to Venice. Inevitably, there is a little crossover with many sales made in Miart of artists whose work is also featured in the “no business” Venice Biennale. First Floor Gallery based in Harare, for example, sold several silicone weavings by Troy Makaza for up to €19,000 (£16,000), who is in Zimbabwe’s pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

It’s not really trying to compete with the commercial fairs like Art Basel or Frieze and is happy with its position as a medium-sized fair, but for me, it had a lot of appeal in terms of actual work and galleries. And, for all the reasons mentioned, it is an exciting time to visit Milan, with so many external projects running across what is one of the greatest Art Cities in the world.
