Investec Cape Town Art Fair is proud to host its 10th-anniversary edition from 17-19 February 2023. Investec Cape Town Art Fair offers an intimate experience of the largest contemporary art fair in Africa, in one of the world’s most vibrant art cities.

With 135 new artists participating, 106 exhibitors, 23,000 visitors, 6,000 VIPs, and a supportive local art community, the fair provide a platform for collectors, galleries, curators, artists, and art journalists from around the globe to engage and create connections. Investec Cape Town Art Fair has proven to be the place where the fast-growing African art market and the international art world meet.

The 10th anniversary of Investec Cape Town Art Fair will explore the notion of time. This theme is appropriately wide-ranging and encompasses ideas related to the past, present and future, including the ever-important concept of change that comes with the passing of time both for humans and the world around us.

The allure of Investec Cape Town Art Fair is its content and its placement on the African continent. With the advent of its 10th edition, the market will prove that art fairs are a sustainable economic model for trade in contemporary art.

The city’s geography is an integral part of Investec Cape Town Art Fair’s success. Cape Town is a vibrant cultural hub, attracting international collectors with the novelty of diverse, cutting edge art and a favourable exchange rate.

Investec Cape Town Art Fair provides an annual platform for artists, galleries, curators, museums, cultural institutions, collectors and art appreciators to connect and interact in the name of art. But it also creates an opportunity for engagement that welcomes a meaningful dialogue, education and far-reaching interaction around contemporary African (and global) art. The fair facilitates space for the art network to evolve, lending support to the visibility and celebrational exchange of art.

Cape Town

Cape Town boasts a vibrant arts scene, driven by top galleries on the African continent. Thanks to its dynamic and diverse cultural heritage and geographic beauty, the city is a compelling destination for both art world professionals and collectors alike. The enormous sales seen by Investec Cape Town Art Fair’s exhibitors in past editions suggest that a sustainable model for an art fair is not only viable but essential for the art market.

Also integral to Investec Cape Town Art Fair is its curatorial component which contributes to the social and cultural economy for contemporary art in the region. The Fair showcases a diversity of work that represents the forefront of contemporary art from Africa to the world, and the world to Cape Town.
