Since 2003, LOOP Fair has been the first in its field exclusively dedicated to the discovery, promotion and acquisition of contemporary video art works.

LOOP Fair strives to re-examine traditional art fair models and methods of presentation by taking into account both the changing attitudes of viewing and interacting with art, and the particularities of moving image practices. LOOP offers a unique viewing experience by presenting each film project in a room of a hotel, thus creating a setting that both focuses on the artists’ work and facilitates the particular  attention required by this medium.

LOOP brings together a strong sense of community between the concomitant fields of contemporary art and cinema, while establishing an occasion to promote and discuss artists’ video and film amidst a specialized audience.

Each year, LOOP Fair committee undertakes a prudent  selection of artists’ films presented by their galleries. The committee is made up of  collectors Isabelle Lemaître, Josée & Marc Gensollen, Haro Cumbusyan and Renée Drake, and is chaired by collector Jean-Conrad Lemaître.

LOOP Fair 2015 will be held on the 4, 5 and 6 June 2015  at the Hotel Catalonia Ramblas, Barcelona.
