After the positive outcome of the online edition of 2020, Wopart - the first world fair dedicated to the artwork on papers - returns in attendance with the title "Extra Time".

Art on paper is booming!

Two pavilions at Lugano Exhibition Centre hosted - from 19 to 21 November - the great artwork on paper world fair, with spaces dedicated to meetings and debates about art on paper, the art market and the dissemination of culture. Robert Phillips, Wopart’s new artistic director, chose the term FLUIDITY as the main theme of the 2021 edition, which includes an exhibition of watercolours by Hermann Hesse as well as works from the BNP Paribas Collection.

"We are convinced that this event is a great opportunity for the whole city", the organizers declared, satisfied with the success of the public and sales, already thinking of the next edition.

The exhibition "Extra Time" was dedicated to the memory of the late Marco Borradori, mayor of Lugano and a great art enthusiast, who recently passed away.
