Whoever loves art is really in good hands in Frankfurt. Not only that in the houses along the Museumsufer always top-class exhibitions are offered and there are numerous galleries that present contemporary art. Events such as the Discovery Art Fair also help to give Frankfurt a special place within Germany's art scene. Now the fair is returning to the Main metropolis for its fifth edition. For four days, selected galleries, projects and solo shows will transform Hall 1 of the Frankfurt exhibition grounds into a vibrant art universe. Thus, the fair returns to the place where its predecessor, the "Art Frankfurt", was based until 2005.

For art lovers, there is really a lot to discover on 9,000 square meters: Because especially the carefully curated mix of galleries, projects and individual artists, which is unique in the trade fair landscape, provides an exciting insight into current art production. The offerings range from painting, photo art and works on paper to sculpture and installation to mixed media works and urban art. About 120 exhibitors offer several hundred artistic positions. There is everything, all materials (so there are, for example, artworks from car tires), various painting techniques, virtual art, immersive art, sculptures and much more.

Mess director Jörgen Golz emphasized that the Discovery Art Fair is not an exhibition, but that it is primarily about selling art. At the Discovery Art Fair there is only contemporary art, with the works sometimes coming very fresh from the studios. The fair is an excellent platform, especially for young artists, to make a name for themselves and reach a wider audience with their work. According to Golz, it is particularly nice that the fair appeals to a very broad audience: both well-heeled art collectors and art students who do not have a lot of money to invest can find the right works here. From 50 € to 140,000 € is here really for every purse something with.

The "Artist Section" is particularly exciting, as it reveals the unique opportunity to meet the artists in person and exchange ideas with them about their work.

The 9.000 square meter exhibition hall also allows specially designed special areas for sculptural works and installations, an innovation last year that was very well received by visitors.

Whoever wants to visit the fair should bring plenty of time to really discover the full range of contemporary art that is shown and offered here.
