WOPART will depend upon a committee of European importance to select the Galleries that will exhibit and the quality of the work.
The first edition attracted a great deal of public interest (5000 visitors) and sales by the Galleries that exhibited works by immerging and established artists as well as ancient masters
In addition to the exhibition at the Centro Esposizioni Lugano, WOPART has a program of events and meetings with experts in the field of art, opinion leaders, academics and art critics, (not least Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Presidente of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo), as well as parallel exhibitions – around 600 square meters of exhibitions – dedicated to art work on paper ( like the one in the “Centro Italiano per la fotografia” in Torino, exhibiting “1930 – 1970: Italian avant-garde photography of the Preiz collection”)
In a reserved area, WOPART will launch its Art Advisory service for specialists in the field of private banking. The idea being to offer personal advice on legal, economic, and insurance issues to collectors.
WOPART is unique in that it is totally “experience based”, aimed at an interested andknowledgeable audience, and is destined to become an indispensable appointment for art lovers at an international level.
