From 23 to 31 January 2016, the BRAFA- Brussels Art Fair- will welcome 137 galleries, including 20 new exhibitors.
Founded in 1956, BRAFA is one of the most prestigious art and antique fairs in Europe. The exhibition is installed in the enormous space of Tour & Taxis, and offers a variety of both antiquities and twenty-first century works including archeology, Primitive and pre-Columbian Art, Asian art, jewellery, ancient and modern paintings, contemporary art, sculpture, tapestries, comics and photography etc. With the support of the floral festival, Floralies of Ghent, Guest of Honour of this 61st edition, the canopies of Tour & Taxis will resemble a greenhouse, in which all the different artistic styles and eras will be mingled together.
At the BRAFA ART TALKS conference, museum curators, collectors, restorers and experts from the art market will share their knowledge and expertise. “The Brafa wants more than ever to maintain its eclecticism, mix its treasures, and demonstrate the richness of its blends. That is why we advocate a mixed installation of stands…We want visitors to take time to have fun”, spoke Harold t’Kint de Roodenbeke, President of the fair.
