About us

Art Zagreb is an annual international contemporary art fair. A great meeting place for artists, collectors, gallerists, curators and art lovers in general. The leading art fair in Croatia since the first edition in 2018 and the one–stop–shop for Croatian contemporary art. Aside from two dozen stands, a three–day event hosts exhibitions, lectures, panels, movie screenings and parties.

In total, over a hundred people participated in the programme — gallerists, artists, collectors, curators… from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, Mexico, Netherland and Slovakia.
