ESTE ARTE provides collectors and art lovers with the chance to get to know the work of each gallery and its artists better. The fair's distinctive human scale format, the quality-focused exhibitors, the outstanding cultural agenda and the expanding platform for regional and international collectors, are some of the  advantageous characteristics that make ESTE ARTE unique. 


We advocate for best practices, and we treasure our reputation of integrity and professionalism. We prioritize communication as we encourage our public and all our exhibitors to share their insights and suggestions with us. We aspire to maintain a comfortable business-related environment.


Unlike other countries in the region, we can rely on Uruguay’s political-economic stability, friendly taxation and efficient infrastructure. These are some of the reasons that the region is attracting international public. Punta del Este is the main resort of South America and internationally known for having the right mix of relax, fun and glamour.


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.


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. Unlike other fairs, the costs include everything: all taxes, lighting, unlimited electricity consumption, unlimited wif-fi, 24h / 24h security, air conditioning, parking, cleaning and all national and international communication.
