Artissima is the main contemporary art fair in Italy. Since its foundation in 1994, it has combined its presence on the international market with a great focus on experimentation and research.

Galleries from all over the world participate in the fair every year. In addition to the exhibition ( Main Section , Dialogue / Monologue , New Entries , Art Spaces & Editions ), Artissima consists of three artistic sections directed by boards of curators and directors of international museums, dedicated to emerging artists ( Present Future ), to drawing ( Drawings ) and to the rediscovery of the great pioneers of contemporary art ( Back to the Future ). 

From 2020, the three curated sections are virtually hosted on the Artissima XYZ digital platform, and in 2021 they will also have a collective physical display in the exhibition hall.

Mohsen Gallery with works of Sasan Abri, Majid Biglari, Samira Hodaei, and Amir-Nasr Kamgooyan and Inja Gallery has displayed works by Negar Farajiani, Abolfazl Harouni.
