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 passionate collectors and scholars an overview of the contemporary art proposal of the Capital, through 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 structures, 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 the novelty 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 that focuses on different themes and topics each year. But it is also an opportunity to put Rome at the center of today’s art scene and able to emerge on par with other major European capitals, involving with events and multiple activities the city center and periphery, 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, in-depth studies 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.
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.
RAW also organizes a rich calendar of guided tours throughout the week, divided by zones or thematic areas.
The online platform romeartweek.com is the main tool of the initiative, during and after the event.
For professionals, 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); 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 consultable forever, even after the art week has ended, 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.
