The participating galleries are categorised into three sections: PRIME, which includes 88 galleries presenting establishes artists; YOUNG, with another 88 galleries exhibiting emerging artists, and DISCOVERY, a new section showcasing lesser-known galleries with breakthrough artists displaying works to a greater audience. In its continuity, the fair also places presentations of individual artists by presenting their SOLO projects.
