Impakt is participating in the LOOP Art Fair.
The LOOP Fair is the 1st Fair exclusively dedicated to videoart, and an unmissable meeting point for professionals and videoart lovers.
LOOP is the annual meeting point for video art professionals based on the triple format of Festival, Fair and discussion Panels. The LOOP project is directed by Emilio Álvarez, Carlos Durán and Llucià Homs.
LOOP Festival presents the work of over 800 artists at many different venues in Barcelona’s city centre. LOOP Fair is the first fair specialising in video art, and features more than 40 participating galleries and distributors showing the latest works by international artists.
LOOP Panels brings together distinguished artists, collectors, curators and museum and festival directors to discuss different aspects of conservation, collecting, distribution and new trends in video art.
LOOP was first held in 2003 in response to the need to define the current status of videoart, but also in order to explore possible future steps that would help establish this new discipline.
LOOP aims to brings together all kinds of agents involved in the sector, in a space with international repercussion. A reference point that favours debate among videoart lovers and allows visitors to experience new works and to devise future strategies for all aspects affecting the field.
LOOP intends to become an international benchmark event, an active platform for the diffusion, creation and management of video art for fans and professionals.
LOOP takes place in Barcelona in the Spring.
