Investec Cape Town Art Fair assures you of our willingness to aid you in sustaining visibility, momentum, and presence; with utmost sensitivity around the impact that this time has brought. Therefore, Investec Cape Town Art Fair’s focus for its ninth edition is shared-support, collaboration, and inspiring new initiatives to ensure momentum and establish a support system amongst exhibitors. We believe in the art fair model to bring people together to connect, converse and contemplate at the forefront of contemporary art.

The 2022 edition of the fair looks profoundly to the notion of collaboration across aspects of Investec Cape Town Art Fair with the intention of opening up a dialogue and a shared support structure, with an exchange of ideas, research, artists, strategies and resources. We look forward to welcoming you to the 9th edition taking place between February 18 and 20, 2022, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
