Taking place from 23 - 31 January, the Brafa, one of the most prestigious European art and antiques fairs, will inaugurate the 2016 calendar of unmissable cultural events.This year, thanks to the re-organization of the main entrance, the new exhibition space will welcome 137 galleries. There is over ten per cent more space and the same increase in the number of exhibitors, an expansion that marks the growing demand for stands at the fair, and the organizers’ desire to propose an even greater variety of the highest quality art.
The new exhibitors include famous galleries that specialize in archaeology, Old Masters, design, modern and contemporary art. The selection reflects two things: Brussels’ ever-strengthening international appeal on the art market and the flourishing attraction of avant-garde art.
