ZURICH.- Kunst 08 Zürich, the 14th International Contemporary Fair opens today. Kunst Zürich has become an attractive new addition to the world of major European art fairs. The high number of visitors and the impressive sales figures of recent years confirm that the business centre of Zurich is an ideal location.
Kunst 08 Zürichis again working with experienced art galleries who present emerging young art in addition to works by internationally renowned artists. Kunst 08 Zürich is proud to offer the ZKB Art Award for the second time. 12 Swiss artists will be selected for an award of 10000 CHF by the Zürcher Kantonalbank to present their work in a solo-show.
This combination of quality, an international spectrum and cutting-edge art will convince every visitor that KUNST ZÜRICHs reputation as an innovative art fair is justly deserved. The art fair appeals to both our primary target audience - interested collectors from Switzerland and abroad and urbane and culturally interested Swiss visitors, particularly the metropolitan area of Zurich.
More than 20,000 visitors from Switzerland and abroad each year confirmed the philosophy of the art fair when they transformed the exhibition centre at Zürich-Oerlikon into a vibrant art centre for four days.
