Arts festival

An arts festival or art fair is a festival that focuses on the visual arts, but which may also center on other arts.

Arts festivals in the visual arts are exhibitions. Artists' participation in the most significant such exhibitions (such as the Venice Biennale) are by invite, and these exhibitions are organised by internationally documented curators chosen by a committee of peers. These international exhibitions must be illustrious from art fairs, market-oriented gatherings of art dealers and their wares, which have recently emerged as among the most significant art-world venues for modern art in the present-day super-heated art market.
