We are promoting contemporary culture through Art, Design, Craft, and Innovation practices in Västerås city to an international audience and vice versa.
Västerås International Art Fair isn´t just an art event! We establish lifelong connections and create strong bonds between exhibitors, art lovers, collectors, and visitors.
We now have a big community of art lovers and artists in Västerås as well as national and international guests, and inviting more people to join us and enjoy world-class artists and designers from different parts of the world.
We arrange events and lectures as well as ongoing exhibitions.
Art is so important in difficult times like this and can be a comfort and inspiration by its
beauty and the ability to connect us to universal emotions.
To meet in such an inspiring environment is a privilege. As we know some people are not
able to travel we want to enable you to participate online.
So welcome to join us in Västerås or on our online platform where you can access and purchase some of the beautiful art pieces from our visiting artists.
Welcome to Art & Innovation City Västerås.
The Art Fair idea came up as we were working on project crossing boarders which was scheduled to be launched in several countries all over the world starting from October but due to the Covid 19 outbreak, we had to re-schedule all the other spaces worldwide, except ours in Sweden as we weren´t forced to shut down then we created Västerås International Art Fair, So we said why not invite the whole world and arrange a bigger event!
The 2nd edition will be held between 16 -23 October in the city center and span over a large area with many exhibitors.
