Dream Works is a new nordic art fair, introducing forms of acquisition and circulation appropriate for the diverse manifestations of art practices today.

Dream Works envisages artworks as material dreams whose conscious or subconscious transactions and transferences assert new ways of socializing and disseminating artistic practices.

Dream Works highlights the various implications of artworks, for and in their dreamers: their patron, spectator, bystander, participant, collector, curator or the artist themselves. (you know art and life problems)

Initiated by Galerie founders Simon Asencio and Adriano Wilfert Jensen in collaboration with curator Anthea Buys, Dream Works is a commercial forum and temporary exhibition format for artworks and institutions that reexamine structures of support, diffusion, acquisition and mediation.

Since 2017 Dream Works aims to institute a new generation of commercial art fairs, stimulating new economies for artworks that challenge their own conventions.
