Art Vancouver where art meets world

Founded in 2015, Art Vancouver welcomes over 100 global artists and galleries, captivating 8,000+ attendees. This foundational event marked the birth of Art Vancouver and laid the groundwork for its transformative initiatives.

Over the years, Art Vancouver has evolved into a space where the contemporary art fair unites nations through art. With the show attracting a carefully curated selection of galleries and artists from across Canada and beyond, the event has become a platform for networking and collaboration within the global art community.

What sets Art Vancouver apart is its commitment to creating a dynamic space for creatives to network and collaborate, surpassing the conventional role of art fairs. Our innovative 'Face of Art' Runway provides artists and galleries with a unique opportunity to connect attendees with the individual artists behind each masterpiece. As artists gracefully walk the runway with their creations, attendees witness not just the art itself but also the vibrant personalities and stories that breathe life into each piece. Additionally, there's space for live demonstrations and on-site painting, allowing attendees to immerse themselves in the artistic process and gain insights into the techniques and inspiration that drive each creation.

Founded by the Vancouver Visual Art Foundation (VVAF), a non-profit organization, Art Vancouver is a celebration of the global art community's diversity and talent. Hosted in the vibrant city of Vancouver, it has grown significantly over the years, from 9,100 attendees to an impressive 10,000+ in its first return from the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The momentum continued, reaching a remarkable 11,000+ attendees in 2023.

Approaching its 8th edition, Art Vancouver remains a testament to the beauty and wonder of contemporary art in Vancouver. Beyond thought-provoking exhibitions, engaging workshops, and stimulating conversations, the fair is a celebration of the global art community's diversity and talent.

Join us on this journey, April 11 - 14, 2024.
