Sections bring together different variations and forms of art exhibited by the participants of the fair.
This section brings together both long-established and young art galleries. Gallery booths showcase not only the works of recognized artists and collectives that have become classics, but also very young authors. They are all united by the principle of historical references, homages and reconsiderations of artistic styles. All of the art objects are available for purchase. The bright, iconic works that have been selected by galleries for presentation at the fair broadcast different periods of time and interpret their narratives.
This year, the thematic focus of 1703 Art Fair is collecting. The non-commercial program of the section is about contemporary practices in the formation of collections. As part of a curatorial special project, Marina Gisich Gallery and KGallery present iconic works from private collections and the golden pool of galleries. Béton Center of Visual Culture presents an exhibition of photographs by leading national and foreign photographers of the second half of the 20th century.
In the Digital and NFT projects section, media artists present digital works, multimedia installations and art objects at the intersection of art, science and technology. Among the participants of the section there is a platform for the development of a transdisciplinary dialogue between the artistic and scientific communities – Art & Science Center of ITMO University, the multifunctional digital art platform Masters Digital and the multi-format project Generative Gallery.
