The art fair that was held in the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam for 13 years long as REALISME will be going further as: FOR REAL.

FOR REAL wants to serve the contemporary art lovers even better than before. The new name also involves a lot of new participants. A couple of new galleries that have never participated before will be present with contemporary figurative art such as QLICK Editions, Untitled, With Tsjalling, Kers Gallery en Vroom & Varossieau, while some contestants like Wit, Rademakers and Wagemans will return to the fair.
At the fair you will find paintings, sculptures, graphics and photography of hundreds of renowned and young artists spread over 39 stands of selected galleries.

MEAM – Barcelona
The Museu Europeu d’Art Modern in Barcelona will be having a special exposition on the Panorama Deck of the Passenger Terminal. This museum is, just like FOR REAL, specialised in the promotion of contemporary figurative art. The museum is property of Fundacío de les Arts i les Artistes and possesses work of hundreds of artists from all over the world, gives exhibitions and organizes a yearly international competition.  The museum’s collection consists largely of the private collection of the Catalan architect José Manuel Infiesta. In this exhibition, special attention is paid to the work of the nonconformist hyperrealist painter István Sándorfi (Budapast 1948 – Paris 2007), whose work enjoys worldwide fame, but has never been seen in the Netherlands before.
