The biggest edition as of yet

UNFAIR23 is a jubilee edition, celebrating 10 years since our first event. This year Unfair will be hosting over 60 artists, and will focus specifically on artists who graduated in challenging times. Whether it’s the banking crisis after 2008 or the recent corona crisis; this year we celebrate artists and their persistence, resilience and imagination.

Curated art fair

Every year a Curatorial Advisory Committee is installed to propose a long list of artists who are in the formative years of their practice. From this longlist a carefully composed shortlist is curated by Unfair that reflects current cultural developments, with a wide arrange of practices, background and stages of development.

Who decided art fairs should all look the same?

Away with the traditional square booth designs, we set out to find a new fair design for every Unfair edition with our Architect Award. Besides catering the many programs and artists we host, the winning design gets to shine on three consecutive editions of Unfair, in varying compositions. With this, we want to develop a more sustainable design, while still guaranteeing a unique experience for visitors and artists on each edition.

Traditionally, Unfair will be held at the Gashouder in Amsterdam. This large industrial hall is known as the heart of the old gas factory that the Westergasfabriek once was. The former storage gas tank, with a surface area of 2500 m2 and the impressive height of 14.5 meters, was built in 1902 and designed by architect Isaac Gosschalk. The historic industrial site has been converted into a lively cultural village in the early 2000’s. Surrounded by green parks, the former industrial buildings house 16 special food & drink destinations and serve as a meeting point for culture in all its shapes and sizes.
