Every year, the art scene is seemingly bombarded with vast, international art fairs. These events have transformed much for the art market over the past 50 years. It’s hard to know where to look.

Recommended to us by artists, collectors, curators and friends, some of our suggested annual art fairs include:

Felix Art Fair, Los Angeles
Since 2018, Felix has become a favorite destination for artists, curators, dealers, galleries and of course collectors. An art fair created with the intention to foster intimate experiences that prioritize conversation, collaboration, and community, Felix Art Fair is hosted in the rooms of the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, adding to the excitement that surrounds the LA art fair week.

ZONA MACO, Mexico City
Established in 2002 by Zélika García, Zona Maco boasts the largest art fair platform in Latin America. It holds four annual events at Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City, bringing together prominent and emerging national and international art galleries.

Tokyo Gendai, Yokohama
A brand new fair launched in July 2023. With participation from 73 esteemed galleries originating from Japan, the broader Asia-Pacific region, and across the globe, the fair introduced a fresh platform for artistic exploration. And everyone’s still talking about it! We are impatiently waiting for its second edition.

1-54 Marrakech
Debuting in 2018 and returning in February 2024, 1-54 Marrakech has solidified its position as the premier international art fair exclusively dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. While we wait for the Marrakech edition in February 2024, we can embrace what 1-54 has to offer in London this fall, during Frieze week.

Sydney Contemporary
The largest and most diverse assembly of contemporary art galleries in Australasia is the Sydney Contemporary fair.

TEFAF Maastricht
Hosting an ensemble of over 260 esteemed dealers from around 20 countries, TEFAF Maastricht serves as a grand exhibition showcasing the finest artworks currently available from traditional areas of antiques to modern and contemporary art, photography, jewelery, 20th-century design, and works on paper.

Art Basel Hong Kong
Spotlighting galleries hailing from Asia and beyond, Art Basel Hong Kong presents a comprehensive view of the Asia-Pacific’s artistic diversity while also embracing global perspectives through the lens of Modern and contemporary creations.

Taipei Dangdai
Taipei Dangdai is a prominent component of major international art fairs that emphasize the Asia Pacific region. This collective initiative, including India Art Fair, Sydney Contemporary, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai, the forthcoming ART SG, and Tokyo Gendai, emanates from the collaboration of three leading art fair organisers led by Sandy Angus, Tim Etchells, and Magnus Renfrew.
