Best prospects for a strong fair

With a series of top dealers, high standards and elegant flair, HIGHLIGHTS is making the city of Munich an important marketplace for the industry for the ninth time. For the 40 internationally renowned art dealers and gallery owners, the name of the fair reflects the aim.

Concentration on first-class works of art

Collectors, art connoisseurs, museum curators and not least the press consider the HIGHLIGHTS International Art Fair to be Germany's most beautiful art and antiques fair. The extraordinary quality of the works of art and the elegant flair have made HIGHLIGHTS, founded in 2009, a top trade fair with international appeal right from the start. From

17 to 21 October 2018 it will take place for the ninth time. The HIGHLIGHTS has a noble address in the heart of the city in the imperial court of the Residenz in the immediate vicinity of the famous Herkules Hall and in the shadow of the newly reopened royal building. From the very beginning, the name of the fair has been the programme: the focus is on selected first-class works of art from various epochs. The

The spectrum ranges from Gothic to contemporary art. Alois Wienerroither from the gallery "W&K Wienerroither & Kohlbacher", which operates in New York and Vienna, sees the appeal of HIGHLIGHTS in its high concentration of top retailers: "A boutique fair of the highest order: manageable, attractive and everyone has their best object with them".

Tradition and modernity

"It is very important to us to hold on to an exciting mixture of old and modern art. The art of past epochs must be presented in a noble ambience and in the context of a high level in order to perceive its meaning and mastery. Only HIGHLIGHTS offers such an environment in Germany," says Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers, Co-Managing Director of the trade fair. This claim is reflected in Tom Postma's elegant, cautiously staged exhibition architecture, but above all in the potency of the forty or so internationally active exhibitors. They will once again turn the HIGHLIGHTS into a sales show where rare, market-fresh and rediscovered products will be presented. The exhibition management is very pleased that Röbbig Porzellan München has returned to the circle of exhibitors. The world's leading specialist for early porcelain and exquisite 18th century French furniture is in contact with collectors and museums on all continents. The splendour of its opulently staged exhibition stands stands stands out even at the TEFAF in Maastricht. According to Alfredo Reye, there is no other trade fair in the German-speaking world of the quality and attractiveness of HIGHLIGHTS. "We see our participation as a strengthening of the national market, as a commitment to our own location, which with all its museums and collections offers a grandiose environment for 18th century art," says Alfredo Reyes, managing director of the house. Ralph Gierhards from Düsseldorf, who enjoys an excellent international reputation as an exhibitor at TEFAF, will again be presenting visitors with top-class furniture and Objets d'Art at the

18th century as well as with sculptures and paintings of the 19th century.

Many participants such as the art trade Peter Mühlbauer from Pocking, Germany's best address for furniture art from the Renaissance to Classicism, and the Galerie Thomas, whose dealer radius extends as far as Hong Kong and New York and which focuses on classical modern and contemporary art, are among the regular exhibitors at the fair. From the very beginning, the Wienerroiter & Kohlbacher duo was also present with its high-quality selection of works from the Vienna Secession and Classical Modernism, such as watercolours by Egon Schiele or a suite of symbolist-fantastic visions by the draughtsman Alfred Kubin.

As a new exhibitor, HIGHLIGHTS welcomes the Linz art dealer Freller, whose particular interest is in modern Austrian painting from the interwar period from Alfons Walde to Albert Birkle, as well as contemporaries from Hermann Nitsch to Maria Lassnig, and the art dealer Dario Ghio from Monte Carlo, who specializes in selected silver works from the 17th to 19th centuries and works by the Kunstkammer and Objets de Vertu. Dario Ghio was not only convinced by the good reputation of HIGHLIGHTS as a trade fair at the highest level. "I think Germany is a good market for my products, because there are numerous cultivated and enthusiastic collectors," says the art dealer who has been active for decades. From Austria the gallery Kovacek & Zetter from Vienna also joins in. The two gallery owners Claudia Kovacek-Longin and Sophie Zetter-Schwaiger come from well-known Viennese art dealer families and founded their art shop in 1999. They are concentrated on 19th and 20th century Austrian painting and also offer contemporary artists such as Erwin Wurm and Hubert.
