The seventh edition of Rome’s contemporary art week kicks off on October 24th
The Eternal City is hosting its seventh edition of “RAW – Rome Art Week” – an artistic initiative dedicated entirely to contemporary art – where over 490 artists, 61 curators, 207 galleries and institutions will be participating, as well as 136 events, 161 exhibitions and 166 open studios.
Rome Art Week is an annual event, spread throughout the city of Rome and totally dedicated to contemporary art, whose aim 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 completely free cultural projects organized specifically for the event and also to build a network between exhibition structures, artists and curators.
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 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, 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 the possible creation of new and emerging contemporary artistic currents.
To guide the public through the multitude of proposals, influential critics, curators, intellectuals and artists active in Rome provide their own selection of participants and events. RAW also organizes guided tours throughout the week, divided by zones or thematic areas, which take place by foot, in small groups that are accompanied to the exhibition facilities and artists’ studios.
