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.

Participating Artists


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!
