OTHERS, Paper and its Opposite, NFT.
WopArt is an annual fair dedicated mainly to 'Works on Paper': from ancient to contemporary art.
The event was launched in 2016, with the support of the City of Lugano and has always been held at the exhibition hall in front of the magnificent lake that frames the landscape of Lugano; Works of art on paper have represented a very interesting segment of the art market in terms of quality/price for a number of years. Even today, it is still possible to buy works by the great international masters at prices ranging from $50 to $350,000.
Less than a tenth of the value the same work would have if it were produced on non-paper media, such as canvas or sculpture. In this edition of WopArt, we want to introduce the concept of inclusion, as well as sustainability. These words are intended to be the threads of a kind of bond that is formed when opposing and, apparently, irreconcilable needs come together to give substance to an ideal of form and substance.
