To kick off a new year, we were honored to invited ENCATC Cultural Happy Hours guests to discover the 62nd edition of the BRAFA Art Fair.
BRAFA 2017 brought together 132 galleries and art dealers from 16 countries, including 13 new names. Archaeology, jewellery, paintings, sculptures, furniture, design, ceramics, porcelain, clocks, objets d'art, glassware, antique frames, original cartoon plates and other contemporary creations will retrace more than four millennia of art history from across the continents.
The now well established tradition of welcoming a guest of honor takes a new shape this year in the form of an homage to Argentine artist Julio Le Parc (b. 1928). Laureate of the Grand Prize in painting at the 33rd Venice Biennale in 1966, he was a particular pioneer in kinetic art, a movement which will largely inspire the decoration of the fair, entrusted to the duo Nicolas de Liedekerke and Daniel Culot of Volume Architecture.
