The fourth edition of LUXEMBOURG ART WEEK will take place from 9 to 11 November 2018 at Halle Victor Hugo in Luxembourg.
CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR
LUXEMBOURG ART WEEK prides itself on playing an essential role in a dynamic local environment. Launched in 2015, it quickly established itself as a major event for art lovers and collectors in Luxembourg and beyond. This year's event will gather more than 50 international galleries, cultural institutions and artists' collectives in two complementary sections.
POSITIONS - The International Art Fair
POSITIONS brings together a selection of established contemporary art galleries from around Europe which represent internationally renowned artists. This section offers exhibitors a professional, dynamic and cost-effective setting to present their artists to a wide audience of art lovers and collectors. The arrangement of the booths has been completely reviewed in 2018 to allow for greater flexibility while offering maximum visibility. The redesign will furthermore allow the fair to host more galleries (32) this year.
TAKE OFF - The Prospective Art Fair
LUXEMBOURG ART WEEK and its official partner, the Ministry of Culture, renew their support to the emerging contemporary scene through TAKE OFF. Launched in 2016, this section is dedicated to emerging galleries with a focus on young or lesser-known artists who present works at affordable prices, as well as to institutions, organisations and artists' collectives who submit specifically conceived projects. This year, 18 exhibitors were selected to take part in TAKE OFF.
CONFERENCES AND ART TALKS
Bringing together a string of specialists from various fields, the conferences and public debates organised during LUXEMBOURG ART WEEK 2018 in partnership with the public radio station 100.7 are a unique opportunity to catch up with the latest developments in local and international art.
