BOLOGNA ART FIRST
Modern and contemporary art in the streets of Bologna
Bologna, 26 29 January 2007
The first edition of BOLOGNA ART FIRST, launched last year as part of ARTEFIERA ART FIRST, proved very popular with art lovers who particularly appreciated the combination of modern/contemporary art installations (specially selected for the event) and the historic architecture of some of the most prestigious venues in the city.
The 2007 edition of ARTEFIERA ART FIRST will be repeating BOLOGNA ART FIRST with a novel exploration of Bolognas museums, historic buildings and courtyards based on art works selected from the proposals of galleries exhibiting at ARTEFIERA ART FIRST 2007.
BOLOGNA ART FIRST 2007 will further consolidate the already strong links between the exhibition and the city, creating a large-scale event devoted to modern and contemporary art open to the more than 40,000 visitors attending the show.
Once again organised with the support of some of the citys institutions, the forthcoming initiative will have a larger number of venues hosting installations selected by the BOLOGNA ART FIRST 2007 Artistic Committee: Gianfranco Maraniello (Director, GAM Bologna), Gaetano Maccaferri (collector), Marino Golinelli (collector) and Silvia Evangelisti (Artistic Director of ARTEFIERA ART FIRST).
