The Investec Cape Town Art Fair runs this weekend (February 14 – 16) at the CTICC. It’s always an extravaganza of established and up-and-coming art talent from SA and across the globe, so it’s absolutely worth a visit.

It’s also the spot for art purchases — sales at last year’s show were close to R120m. Over the weekend there will be talks on art, philanthropy, museums of the 21st century, collecting art and investing in culture — especially timeous given the growth of privately owned and/or funded art institutions.
