    Commenting on the collaboration with Investec, Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa MD Maria Chieppa said: “We are partnering with Investec to maximise the value of Cape Town Art Fair. We needed to find the right sponsor to reflect the image of where the fair is going and we couldn’t have found a more fitting partner than Investec.”

    “In a country that has great cultural diversity, art has a way of breaking down barriers and bringing people together. Internationally, the popularity of African art is on the rise. We are looking forward to collaborating with Cape Town Art Fair to help facilitate this growth and further develop Cape Town’s reputation as an international destination for art enthusiasts,” said Investec’s global head of marketing Malcolm Fried.

    South Africa, Africa, and beyond

    The galleries participating in the 2018 Art Fair are set to offer a broad representation at the forefront of contemporary art, from Africa to the world and the world to Africa.

    Internationally renowned galleries such as Galerija Gregor Podnar (Berlin, Germany), Perrotin (Paris, France) and Magnin-A (Paris, France) will be welcomed to Cape Town for the first time, while Galleria Minini, October Gallery, Galleria Continua, Primo Marella Gallery, and Tiwani Contemporary will return.
