Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2022

18 to 20 February 2022

Investec Cape Town Art FairThe ninth edition of the Investec Cape Town Art Fair takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. As a hybrid event, the 2022 fair includes a digital edition, substantially bolstering the fair’s reach and appeal.

The 2022 edition brings together a diverse group of celebrated exhibitors. A large contingent within Investec Cape Town Art Fair is made up of prominent galleries from around the globe, all of whom represent both established and emerging artists with a presence in museums, biennales, and important private collections around the world.

Featured sections at the fair include:

Tomorrows/Today is dedicated to highlighting the practices of emerging and under-represented artists, curated by Luigi Fassi and Nkule Mabaso. Tomorrows/Today is characterized as a hub, a place in which decisive artistic achievements are concentrated, as the title of the project suggests – between the now and the yet to come, or more precisely, to emphasize anticipation of the future in the present.

SOLO explores how artists have reacted to intimacy and introspection caused by the pandemic, as well as the effect that exchange and collaboration have on artistic practice as a whole. SOLO is an extension of Investec Cape Town Art Fair’s project, Insight-out, launched in 2020 – a playful Q&A addressed to artists during isolation highlighting their everyday lives.

Past/Modern introduces a guest-curated program by curator João Ferreira featuring presentations by Modern masters.

ALT debuts in 2022 and is dedicated to projects that reflect the many ways in which the art world had to adapt in response to the global shift from physical to virtual. Young, non-traditional exhibitors have the opportunity to showcase their artists in a nonconventional way, though in the conventional setting of an Art Fair, opening a dialogue on representation and physical versus virtual connection.

The Editions section showcases leading print galleries and workshops that specialize in prints, multiples, and editions. Participating in Editions this year is: 50ty/50ty (Cape Town, South Africa), Artist Proof Studio (Johannesburg, South Africa), ArtThrob (Cape Town, South Africa), Asele Institute (Nimo, Nigeria), Dale Sargent Fine Art (Johannesburg, South Africa), LL Editions Contemporary (Johannesburg, South Africa), Samuel Maenhoudt Gallery (Knokke-Heist, Belgium) and South Atlantic Press (Cape Town, South Africa).

Cultural Platforms presents the work of cultural institutions and non-profit organizations that nurture and support artistic production in the region through exhibitions and artist residencies.

The Magazines & Publications section showcases magazines, books, journals, and catalogues presented by publishers from around the world with a focus on art.
