ICTAF2020 | Call For Entry
Investec Cape Town Art Fair is a gallery-focused, contemporary art fair. The selection of galleries is decided upon by a committee of gallerists and curators working locally and abroad, based on the quality of each gallery's proposal and supporting documents. Guidelines for submitting supporting documents can be found on each entry form, please follow them closely. Selected exhibitors in the Main Section, SOLO, and Tomorrows/Today must have a physical exhibition space and be able to demonstrate a regular exhibition programme throughout the year, as well as a roster of represented artists. We do not accept applications from individual artists.
Please note the R1500 application fee, which must be paid before the application deadline.
Application deadline: 16 September 2019.
The Main Section lies at the core of the Fair, showcasing presentations of contemporary art by leading galleries from around the globe.
Tomorrows/Today is a curated section which aims to highlight artists who will be tomorrow's leading names. A panel of art professionals awards a cash prize to the artist with the most exciting presentation. The section will be co-curated by Nkule Mabaso (Head Curator, Michaelis Galleries, South Africa) and Luigi Fassi (Artistic Director, MAN-Contemporary Art Museum, Italy).
SOLO seeks to more fully explore the artistic practices of emerging and mid-career artists working locally and abroad, through curated solo presentations. In its third iteration, the curated section will explore different representations of space including but not limited to the urban, domestic, architectural, and virtual, in a variety of media. The section will be curated by Portia Malatjie (Independent curator, South Africa).
Editions showcases leading galleries and workshops that specialise in prints, multiples and editions.
