Rome Art Week

Rome Art Week is an annual event, spread throughout the city of Rome and totally dedicated to contemporary art, whose goal is to offer the public of enthusiasts, collectors and scholars an overview of the contemporary art proposal of the Capital, through hundreds of events in exhibition spaces, artists’ open studios and cultural projects completely free of charge organized specifically for the event and also to build a network between exhibition facilities, artists and curators.

Rome Art Week is a unique opportunity to give prominence to voices that have a desire to emerge, an event that is totally free for artists and the consuming public. An artistic-cultural event that is ready to welcome anyone who wants to discover what is new in the field of contemporary art, which allows us to see reality through new reflections and perspectives through direct contact with art.

A varied and well-established program, an opportunity to place Rome at the center of today’s art scene, capable of emerging on par with other major European capitals, involving with events and multiple activities the center and the periphery of the city, incorporating as many realities as possible and permeating the spirit and soul of the city.

Galleries, Foundations, Museums, Cultural Institutions and Associations, Academies, Italian and foreign Cultural Institutes and independent research spaces open their doors proposing exhibitions, events, talks, meetings, performances, insights and extraordinary openings.

Artists organize open studios to welcome fans, collectors and professionals to their work space and open new perspectives of knowledge of their artistic research.

Curators present their research through exhibition projects and cultural events in different spaces around the city.

Collectives, promoted to encourage artists to join together, foster a possible creation of new and emerging contemporary art currents.

To guide the public through the multitude of proposals, Points of View identified among influential critics, curators, intellectuals and artists active in Rome provide their own selection of participants and events.

The Viewpoints of this edition are: Alberto Dambruoso, Antonio Pavolini, Claudia Pecoraro, Claudio Strinati, Giovanni Albanese, Greta Alberta Tirloni, Lanfranco Aceti, Lorenzo Canova, Manfredi Maretti, Marco Mancini, Marco Piccaluga, Maria Giovanna Musso, Massimiliano Reggiani, Massimo Scaringella, Micol Di Veroli, Paola Litterio, Paolo Balmas, Raffaele Quattrone, Roberto Gramiccia, Tiziana D'Acchille

RAW also organizes guided tours throughout the week, divided by zones or thematic areas, which take place on foot, in small groups that are accompanied to the exhibition facilities and artists’ studios.

City halls have also been involved in order to highlight territorial realities, which are involved in contemporary art. A dedicated web page was created for the participating Municipalities, highlighting the artists and events organized in that area.

Rome has the highest percentage of foreign institutions in the world, and that is why RAW continues and amplifies the collaboration with the most important international realities that have chosen Rome Art Week as their interlocutor to present their activities to the public. Thus allowing a direct comparison between artists from other countries and Italian artists with a fruitful exchange of creative relationships.

Hotel facilities were included to encourage economic and qualitative growth of the hospitality sector. They were given the opportunity to promote their facility, through the RAW website, advertising and associating their image with the contemporary art world.

The online platform is the carrier tool of the initiative, both during and after the event.

To the participants, the site allows them to create and manage, free of charge and in complete autonomy, their personal file with all the biographical information, reference images and contact information, as well as the files of the events proposed for RAW.

To the public, the site provides: the map, calendar, and fact sheets of all events with details and useful information; maps and fact sheets of all participants divided by section (facilities, artists, curators, collectives); Point of View selections; and the calendar and fact sheets of all guided tours with an integrated booking system.

Each section will remain visible and searchable forever, even after the conclusion of the event, providing the public with an important means of contact with those who create and promote contemporary art in Rome, both through the website and through the direct creation of events.

At each edition is also distributed free of charge in printed form (min/ed 20,000 copies) the complete program containing all the events and at the end of the event realized a guide in book distribution (last edition of 200 pages) containing the files of all the participants.

Rome Art Week is organized by Kou – a nonprofit association for the promotion of visual arts. Participation is completely free for both participants and visitors as there is no admission charge for events.
