The annual Investec Cape Town Art Fair (ICTAF) has announced the further postponement of its ninth edition, this time to 2022. Having first pushed back the 2021 edition of the art fair to May of 2021, the CTAF will now take place from 18 to 20 February 2022 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
The ICTAF team cites the ongoing pandemic as the reason for the postponement, saying that the health of each gallery and visitor is of the utmost importance. Read the full statement by ICTAF below.
Postponement of Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2021
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to postpone the ninth edition of Investec Cape Town Art Fair to 18 to 20 February 2022 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Organised by Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa, the fair upholds its meaningful role as the African continent’s most significant international contemporary art fair. We look forward to receiving everyone once more next year when we will resume our much anticipated programme.
Although this is a difficult decision, we are confident that it is the right one. We are decidedly prioritising the health and welfare of each gallery and visitor that would join us. Going forward, we are putting every effort in to ensure that the art fair remains a source of excitement and provides something to look forward to. When the time comes, the fair will be a most rapturous event, made even more so by the extended wait.
While we eagerly await the opening of the fair’s doors, we are taking this time to envisage and explore new ways of collaborating and supporting the arts and cultural industry. As always, we will continue to provide updates via email, as well as social media (Instagram | Facebook | Twitter).
We remain grateful for everyone’s support and encouragement.
