Now in its sixth year, the Cape Town Art Fair is produced by the internationally recognised Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa.
Commenting on the collaboration with Investec, Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa Managing Director Maria Chieppa said: “We are partnering with Investec to maximise the value of Cape Town Art Fair. We needed to find the right sponsor to reflect the image of where the fair is going and we couldn’t have found a more fitting partner than Investec.”
“In a country that has great cultural diversity, art has a way of breaking down barriers and bringing people together. Internationally, the popularity of African art is on the rise. We are looking forward to collaborating with Cape Town Art Fair to help facilitate this growth and further develop Cape Town’s reputation as an international destination for art enthusiasts,” said Investec’s Global Head of Marketing, Malcolm Fried.
Investec Cape Town Art Fair will take place from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 February 2018 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. The participating galleries are set to offer a broad representation at the forefront of contemporary art, from Africa to the world and the world to Africa.
Internationally renowned galleries such as Galerija Gregor Podnar (Berlin, Germany), Perrotin (Paris, France) and Magnin-A (Paris, France) will be welcomed to Cape Town for the first time. The exhibition will also see the return of leading galleries such as Galleria Minini, October Gallery, Galleria Continua, Primo Marella Gallery, and Tiwani Contemporary, among others.
Highlighting the cutting edge of the African art scene are South African galleries including Goodman Gallery, Stevenson, Gallery MOMO, SMAC Gallery, WHATIFTHEWORLD, Blank Projects, and Everard Read CIRCA Gallery, amongst others.
