The Investec Cape Town Art Fair returns for its 8th edition. The Fair, now in its third year with Investec as its partner, once again offers a unique cross-section of the art market, representing the forefront of contemporary art globally.
Tomorrows/Today, the section of the fair dedicated to highlighting the practices of emerging and under-represented artists, is curated by Nkule Mabaso (Head Curator of Michaelis Galleries, South Africa) and Luigi Fassi (Artistic Director of MAN-Contemporary Art Museum, Italy).
2020’s SOLO focus explores different representations of space including the urban, domestic, architectural, and virtual, in a variety of media.
Other sections to look forward to are: Past/Modern, a new guest-curated programme by Joao Ferriera (Curator, South Africa), featuring presentations by Modern masters; Editions, showcasing leading print galleries and workshops that specialise in prints, multiples, and editions; Cultural Platforms, curated by Tumelo Mosaka, presents the work of cultural institutions and non-profit organisations, nurturing and supporting the artistic production in the region through exhibitions and artist residencies; and finally, the Magazines & Publications section, showcasing magazines, books, journals, and catalogues presented by publishers from around the world, with a focus on art.
To round things off, the Art Fair includes a public programme that includes screenings, gallery openings and a curated talks programme to engage visitors of the fair.
