ESTE ARTE International Art Fair taking place in January at Punta del Este Convention & Exhibition Center, Uruguay.

We empower both private and institutional collections. We support the art market's development. In parallel to the exhibition, we create a space for dialogue among artists, collectors and curators. We envision a cultural landmark, where the South American art system meets, exchanges ideas and thrives.

From January 4-8, 2020, ESTE ARTE, the most selected art fair in the Americas, presents its 6th edition in Punta del Este. The show will feature a tailored selection of regional galleries, alongside a selection of international leading galleries, where quality is first. 

The fair's exquisite format and ambiance; the excellent Exhibitors Program; the outstanding Cultural Program; and the dynamic Collectors Program as an intelligent platform for regional and international collectors, are what make ESTE ARTE unique as its venue: the perfect mix of business and relax.

Customs Information

Unlike other countries in the region, artworks transit management is simple and well organized. All temporary importations (90 days) of artworks are exempt from customs taxation. When an artwork is sold within the country, customs duty are needed but are related to the constitutive value of the piece. Also, the artworks sold within the Republica Oriental del Uruguay, are exempt from paying VAT or other taxes.

Strategic Location

Uruguay’s economic stability, friendly taxation and efficient infrastructure are among the advantageous conditions of the location and some of the reasons that the region is attracting international VIPs. Punta del Este is the main resort of South America and internationally known for having the right mix of relax, fun and glamour.

Efficiency Infrastructure

Although Punta del Este preserves the appearance of a small town, it also offers facilities and services usually found in larger cities such as: the International Airport of Punta del Este, hotels and rental housing, design stores, haute cuisine restaurants. ESTE ARTE has formed partnerships with firms providing additional services as Art Handlers team, Photographer Service, Framing Studio, and Freelance Technicians or Assistants.
