Perched on the banks of the River Aare, in the new Strasbourg Exhibition Centre, we'll be hosting the 27th edition of ST-ART. This new edition is set to be full of surprises and innovations, and will also showcase our strong, local roots. Whilst Alsace is taking centre-stage, as always, ST-ART continues to reach out to all horizons, showcasing artwork, galleries and artists from across the whole of France and Europe.
ST-ART remains one of the leading contemporary art and design fairs in the region, thanks to both the exceptional quality of the pieces exhibited and the diversity of the visitors and collectors who attend it. It will welcome new galleries, including young, budding galleries, as well as faithful, renowned galleries.
With undying pride in its eclectic offering, the Strasbourg Contemporary Art Fair presents an artistic stage where art brut rubs shoulders with urban art, thanks to the loyal and selective tastes of the ST-ART Artistic Committee.
The 27th edition of ST-ART will beheld from 24th to 26th November 2023, and the opening event will be held on 23rd November.
