Art Cologne 2010
The 44th ART COLOGNE will take place April 21-25, 2010. The last edition of the ART COLOGNE proved able to meet the challenges of the new economy by physical consolidation, conceptual expansion and easy access to the cultural riches of the Rhineland.
The 44th Internationaler Kunstmarkt will build on this model. Located again in Levels 1 and 2 of Hall 11 of the Koelnmesse grounds in Cologne-Deutz, the 44th ART COLOGNE will showcase 180 modern, post-war and contemporary galleries.
Modern and post-war will occupy level 1. Level 2 will present contemporary galleries, as well as Open Space and New Contemporaries, ART COLOGNE's proven platforms for the presentation of young and cutting-edge international art.
The Vernissage will take place on April 20, 2010 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.
