Investec Cape Town Art Fair Vernissage

Join me for my annual Investec Cape Town Art Fair Vernissage, at the acclaimed Investec Cape Town Art Fair, renowned as the best for African contemporary art. It is certainly for me as it isn’t too big, it is carefully selected and well designed. The long-standing director, Lara Vincenti, is an Italian architect by training.

Each year I take a small group round the Vernissage – making introductions to curators, gallerists and artists. These vary from the established big names to emerging talent. It is buzzy and a good way to see the art before it gets snapped up. (It is not possible for members of the public to buy tickets to the Vernissage.)

Afterwards, we go to supper locally (image below from a previous year).

Venue: Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), Convention Square, 1 Lower Long Street, Cape Town, 8001 (supper venue to be confirmed)

Date:  Thursday 14 February 2019

Time: 6-10pm. R800 pre 1 February 2019, then R1 000, including dinner close-by at True Italic (preview only half price).
