Unika Art Fair

For four days in September, the Val Gardena valley becomes an art centre: That’s when the traditional Unika Art Fair takes place

It was in 1994, that the foundation stone was laid in the Val Gardena valley, known for its unique woodcarvings, for a platform for sculpture, painting and photography by local and regional artists: It was called Unika and now organises the Unika Art Fair - "Unika Kunstmesse" in German, "Fiera delle Sculture Unika" in Italian - and the "Biennale Idea Unika - Art in the centre" as a highlight every year. In the meantime, well over 100 artists have presented their work to a broad public as part of the art fair, including Aron Demetz, Wilhelm Senoner, Peter Demetz and Gregor Prugger.

At the Tennis Centre in Roncadizza, a district of Ortisei, the current 28 Unika members, including 18 sculptors, 7 painters, one photographer and two woodturners, will be showing over 200 works as part of the art fair. In 2020 the first female member joined, and every year there are also some new young talents who can introduce themselves here for the first time...
