The Cape Town Art Fair

This fair sets Africa firmly on the map as a strong influencer in the global contemporary art scene

Everyone knows that Cape Town is one of the world’s preeminent contemporary art hubs, and this event serves as further testimony to the abundant creative talent on the greater African continent. The Cape Town Art Fair will showcase a diverse selection of African art at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from Friday, 17, until Sunday, 19 February 2017.

This year’s event will see a number of prestigious galleries serving up a myriad thought-provoking and beautiful artworks from some of our top artists. Attendees are not only invited to visit the participating galleries, but they can also pop into specially curated exhibits and take part in a series of talks on Africa’s art scene. The aim is to delve into the history, origins, cultural heritage, geographic beauty and global relevance of our art, with the intent of further entrenching Africa as an important creative influencer.
