UVNT Art Fair returns from 23 to 26 February with more galleries, more proposals and more space at its COAM headquarters in Madrid.
With six editions behind it, UVNT has grown by creating a different proposal where the most current art and new languages have found their platform to make themselves known. The new edition, to be held in February 2023, will open its doors to continue to be the essential event that allows to approach the current that critics have called New Contemporary Art.
Once again, painting as a support and the new figuration as a movement will be the main protagonists. It is in the fair‘s DNA to be open to the latest trends in art and to bring them to the Spanish market.
In its seventh edition, established as the most groundbreaking and fresh fair, UVNT will be held in its usual venue at the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid from 23 to 26 February. Located at number 63, Calle Hortaleza, COAM is a multi-purpose space with a central garden, always presided over by a work of public art.
“UVNT is a fair in constant evolution and with a consistent and contemporary art proposal that dares with new languages that do not understand labels,” explains Sergio Sancho, founder and director of UVNT. “The event aims to generate diverse spaces for creation and dialogue, positioning itself as a connector of the different agents in the art world,” he adds.
