Donostiartean Evolution

The annual contemporary art fair Donostiartean, held in San Sebastián and going on its 4th year, has seen a strong upsurge in the number of international galleries and artists participating in this year’s fair.

Our commitment to showcasing the latest trends emerging in the world of contemporary art has led us to create a night art market: the Donostiartean International Art Night Market, with 9 different exhibition areas to give different artist collectives the chance to present their newest projects.

An art market in a renewed, fresh and friendly atmosphere topped with live music and fine cuisine.
