CAN – Contemporary Art Now– is envisioned as a laid-back event that celebrates somewhat of a current renaissance of figurative painting and related work. Looking back at the ground breaking legacy of Cubism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Fauvism, CoBrA, New Objectivity, all the way to Futurism, New Leipzig School, Pop Art, Naïve Art and their sub-varieties, the curation of the fair is primarily focused on the notable artists and the galleries that have been supporting their practices.
Although having a bold focus on the figurative painting, CAN is determined towards introducing the cutting-edge related forms through their program, as an innovative platform for discovering the latest in contemporary art, with an emphasis on the new languages that have emerged and are constantly being updated.
In summer and for 5 days, the island will become a meeting point for artists, art collectors, enthusiasts, and personalities of the local and international cultural scene. CAN brings together international galleries, mainly from Europe, America, and Asia, to present more than 100 artists under one roof.
