- June Art Fair with 19 galleries presenting 28 artists
- Volta Art Fair including 67 galleries showing 225 artists
Basel was overrun by art professionals and art lovers from all over the world.
Gallery Femtensesse had success with sales at the fair and is following up further contacts gained through their participation there.
In New York, local experts were selected to give feedback to the teams on their presentations for the New York art professional audience.
They generously gave advice on what is important to be successful in the New York art field and what to emphasise when you present work.
OCA was pleased to have Rachel Mijares Fick as the expert from the visual art field and art fair sector.
The participating teams in the NAA Competence Program presented their project, and showed their film on portraying their artist to a New York art professional public at the Center for Architecture in New York on the 22nd June, 2022.
