Collecting Art

A story through the symbols of furniture and art

It is a story told through symbols of furniture and art, from those belonging to aristocratic families to those that have been in the salons of collectors from around the world: Gotha is art collecting in its highest sense, work presented in its grandeur, in its magnificence.

Numerous initiatives will animate this edition, like special thematic exhibitions and conversations on the art world by academics, collectors, museum curators and qualified personalities.

Exhibit

exceptional quality

Gotha is the international exhibition of high-end antiques, with select exhibitors who display works of exceptional quality.

Exhibiting at Gotha means being part of a unique and exclusive showcase that captures the attention of a highly-profiled target audience.

Together with companies and industry stakeholders, Gotha has undertaken collaborations, partnerships and co-marketing initiatives that enrich the event with services and activities to make Gotha a vital meeting point in the luxury antiques sector.

The 14th edition of the event has a clear direction: to bring to the attention of the public prestigious pieces not just from the periods usually presented at this exhibition, but also from years closer to our time.  Photography, sculpture, video art, and installations are all elements being offered by internationally-renowned galleries and that Gotha intends to explore so that it may be considered by all to be the most comprehensive Italian exhibition in this sector.

Initiatives 2018

GothaNet: the project that brings to the Exhibition the relationship between local museums and museums further field.

The 14th edition of Gotha, will take place from 8 to 11 November 2018 at Fiere di Parma; this prestigious event dedicated to art will exhibit works of considerable value, not only in financial terms. In this context we have included the participation of a network of museums and a dedicated information area with materials about the places of art and culture, which make Parma a unique city, involved in specific events that will be held during the Gotha exhibition.

A sort of strategic Tourist Art Point for all operators coming from abroad who will be staying in Parma between the 7th (inaugural evening) and 11th November and for all enthusiasts.

Another very important new initiative featuring in the 14th exhibition of fine antiques, arts and Twentieth Century will be the participation of prominent contemporary art galleries among the exhibitors, to enrich the offer to the public: therefore, not just antiques of the highest standard, but also a collateral section with unique and new content.
