The Brafa Art Fair, created in 1956, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious art fairs, famous for the high quality fine art, antiques, modern and contemporary art and design it offers. Brafa takes place during the last ten days of January.
The first major art event of the year is considered a reliable barometer of the art market.
The 2016 edition achieved a new record of attendance with more than 58,000 visitors.
Brafa 2017 will bring together 132 galleries and art dealers from 16 countries at Tour & Taxis, a magnificent site that is part of Brussels’ industrial heritage.
“We are very proud to once again be able to present a panel of internationally renowned specialists in a variety of different areas. When we look at the references for our participating galleries, we can see that they exhibit at the largest fairs in the world, and BRAFA is now a part of that” says Harold t’Kint de Roodenbeke, President of the event.
The King Baudouin Foundation will be the guest of honour of BRAFA 2017. They will curate the Brafa Art Talks, daily lectures about captivating art-topics. A special homage will be paid to Julio le Parc, Argentine artist, pioneer in kinetic art, with 4 major artworks displayed through the fair.
