We used to be
an art fair
29 March –
02 April 2018
On April 2nd we said farewell to our last visitors. We’ve had five wonderful days at the Westergasfabriek full of art, performances, music and joy. Unfair likes to thank all the 40 artists, our partners, sponsors and the 10.000 vistors for making this possible!
Unfair18 is a new biennial group exhibition, art fair and festival celebrating cutting edge contemporary art. We used to be only an art fair, but that was boring.
Unfair18 hosted a wide selection of programmes, ranging from talks, radio, performance, video and of course, cutting edge contemporary art by the best artists of today and tomorrow.
Fullscreen is an immersive, large-scale video installation showing work by various artists.
Presented at our satellite location, and free entrance!
UN AIR broadcasted live daily! The show provided your daily dose of talks, discussions and interviews about contemporary art, with some of our finest Unfair artists and invited guests.
What better way to dive in to cutting edge contemporary art, than by putting on headphones and follow our guiding audio tours through our program?
Galleries Present offered an introduction to a few of Amsterdam’s most prominent art-galleries and its artists by taking in their moving imagery – let your mind wander at these contemporary masters at work.
The Loyens & Loeff Emerging Artist Award was given to the most promising and talented participating artist at Unfair18. The prize offers support, funds research and the creation of new work for the winning artist.
UNFAIR18 offered a broad selection of cutting edge performances spread throughout the festival, ranging from small interventions permanently on show to full out programs at night.
Unfair18 hosted performances that fuse art with music, especially for Subbacultcha x Unfair, by Joeri Woudstra a.k.a. Torus & Anan Striker and Luuk Wezenberg a.k.a. MONO BROS.
We are proud to announce the Unfair18 Architect Award, a new competition for the exhibition design of Unfair, in collaboration with the internationally renowned architecture agency UNStudio. For more info on this years winner, the participating designs and much more, click the button below.
