With around 34,000 visitors Cologne’s ART.FAIR has broken another record in its tenth anniversary year. Its partner fair BLOOOM – the converging art show and its focus on young fresh art was also met with critical acclaim. Terminus Gallery, Munich secured the most expensive sale at this year’s ART.FAIR, selling a piece by James Rosenquist for 1.2 Million Euro to a Swiss collector.

ART.FAIR Director Andreas Lohaus enthuses ‘this year’s fair has underlined our status as a unique event. Together with BLOOOM, ART.FAIR harmoniously unites a wide artistic spectrum from Shepard Fairey to Imi Knoebel to Gerhard Richter to Andy Warhol. We have also established ourselves as an art fair, which is equally attractive to both collectors and beginners’.

Director Walter Gehlen sees this success as a confirmation: ‘it shouldn’t be taken for granted that both fairs have proven such fruitful platforms for the art market in these economically trying times. This year’s visitor record and the consistently good sales show that the concept of ART.FAIR and BLOOOM is successful across the board.’

The attached video is by QUINTESSENZ, one of the 10 finalists of the BLOOM Award by Warsteiner. The video was shot in seven days during the IBUG Festival in Meerane, East Germany in summer 2011. The film is a mixture of live band footage and stop motion sequences.

BLOOM presented work by all finalists: Miya Ando, USA; Stefan Bircheneder, Germany; Heike S. Bühler, Germany; Johanna Flammer (1st place), Germany; Saeed Foroghi, Germany; Jacky Hijstek, Netherlands; Mariola Laschet (3rd Place), Germany, Alex Prooper (2nd Place), Netherlands as well as Daniel Zakharov and Sebastian Hennig, Germany.

GoSee presents a range of artwork and some photos of both events.
