The fair takes place in its usual venue, the Tour & Taxis exhibition hall in the Belgian capital, and runs from January 26-February 3.
With everything from antiquities and medieval sculpture to Art Deco, comic strip and contemporary art, it offers a range of material that aims to strike a balance between tradition and novelty. The fair’s board of directors is opting for evolution over revolution.
There are 16 new names among the exhibitors, including four from the UK: David Aaron – Antiquities; Bowman Sculpture; the Cortesi Gallery with post-war European Art and the Willow Gallery – Impressionist and European paintings.
In recent years the fair has featured an artistic guest of honour (Julio le Parc in 2017 and Christo in 2018). This year BRAFA will welcome Gilbert & George who have selected five large-scale works that will be positioned at various locations throughout the venue.
