There is also an influx of international galleries participating in Investec Cape Town Art Fair for the first time: Templon (Paris), MAGNIN-A (Paris), LOOM Gallery (Milan), Ayyam Gallery (Dubai), Retro Africa (Lagos), Lia Rumma (Milan), Omenka Gallery (Lagos), Montoro12 Gallery (Rome), Eduardo Secci Contemporary (Florence), Art Twenty One (Lagos), Barbara Paci Galleria d’Arte (Pietrasanta), MOVART (Luanda), NIL Gallery (Paris), Cellar Contemporary (Trento), ELA – Espaço Luanda Arte (Luanda), NOMAD Gallery (Brussels), Sitor Senghor (Paris), and Louis Simone Guirandou Gallery (Abidjan).

Investec Cape Town Art Fair also serves as the hometown fair of local galleries with a significant international presence. ICTAF 2019 will see new presentations by leading South African galleries including Goodman Gallery, Stevenson, Everard Read CIRCA, Gallery MOMO, SMAC Gallery, WHATIFTHEWORLD, SMITH, and Blank Projects. Alongside their presentations at ICTAF these galleries, each of whom are pillars of the art scene in Cape Town and South Africa at-large, will form a captivating, programme of exhibition openings and events to coincide with the Fair.

Tomorrows/Today, the section of the Fair which aims to place a spotlight on emerging and under-represented artists, will be curated by Fair Curator Tumelo Mosaka. The artists presented in Tomorrows/Today are new to the market, and are positioned to be tomorrow’s prominent names in contemporary art. The presentations in the section have continued to be thought-provoking and experimental since its inception at the 2016 edition of the Fair. The section’s continuation reiterates the Fair’s support of artists who may otherwise be overlooked by the art market.

The second iteration of the SOLO section, will explore the effects of the digital world on artistic production and our lived realities. Each edition of SOLO aims to present a more in-depth insight into the artistic practices of a varied selection of artists than is commonly found in the commercially-driven, art fair setting. The selected artists have varying aesthetics and contexts, are situated in different stages of their careers, and have unique perspectives on each edition’s thematic focus.
