Cersaie is considered as the not-to-be-missed event for the surfaces and bathroom furnishings sectors.
Cersaie will be held in the Bologna Exhibition Centre from September the 27th to October the 1st.
The show will adopt a safer, more engaging and more international exhibition format.
It will allow rethinking the world of architecture and home design in a way that brings together health and beauty.
In the two preceding editions, Italy’s longest-running modern and contemporary art fair ARTE FIERA was almost completely renewed. The 2021 edition will consolidate the new formula. Of course, there will also be surprises and new features, starting with the curator of the Focus section: in 2022, Focus will be curated by Marco Meneguzzo.
The Main section ranges from Italian Modern and Post-War art (traditional strong points of Arte Fiera) to contemporary research, emphasising monographs and curatorial proposals that focus on a school or a trend.
Devoted to modern art and to Post-War Masters, Focus does not have fixed content: the invited curator (who changes every year) concentrates on a period, trend, artistic school based on his/her expertise and preferences. The second edition of Focus, curated by art critic and historian Marco Meneguzzo, will regard so-called “exact art” (which includes kinetic art, programmed art, and similar trends) from the late ’50s to the 70s, with specific attention to the Italian scene.
Pittura XXI is a new format for art fairs (both Italian and foreign): a section devoted entirely to the most traditional language – painting – which in recent years has returned to centre stage for critics, institutions and the market. With a selection of “solo” and “duet” stands, the section focuses on 21st-century painting and offers a panorama of emerging and mid-career artists, both Italian and foreign. The section is curated by Davide Ferri, independent critic and curator who has a proven record of writings and exhibitions on international contemporary painting.
