Who we are
Art Fairs is a Spanish company and promoter of art fairs and cultural events. Since 2009 we have organised the fairs MADRIDFOTO (International Photography fair, 4 editions in Madrid), JUSTMAD (International Emerging Art Fair, 9 editions in Madrid), JUSTMADMIA (International Emerging Art Fair of Miami, 1 edition in Miami) and SUMMA (international Fair of Contemporary Art, 3 editions in Madrid).
Art Fairs, with the creation of Just LX, takes another step forward in its strategy for the promotion of art and its appropriate commercialization, bringing all its experience and energy to the creation of a very special fair in Lisbon focused on contemporary emerging art, with newly discovered galleries and artists.
JUSTLX is born
The month of May sees Lisbon turn into the key centre of contemporary European art. The dynamic, cosmopolitan character of the city, along with its broad cultural and gastronomic offering, form the ideal setting for this fair.
