The next edition of BRAFA will take place over 8 days, from Sunday, January 29th to Sunday, February 5th, 2023, at Brussels Expo, an emblematic site on the Heysel plateau, a prestigious legacy of the Brussels World Exhibitions of 1935 and 1958.
Created in 1956, BRAFA, originally called the Foire des Antiquaires de Belgique, is one of the oldest and also one of the most prestigious art fairs in the world. It is renowned for the quality of the selected galleries and the works it exhibits, ranging from antiquity to modern and contemporary art and design. Over the years, BRAFA has become one of the most inspiring art fairs in Europe. As the first major artistic event of the year, BRAFA is considered to be a reliable barometer of the art market.
For this 2023 edition, a theme has been chosen in correlation with the initiative of the Brussels-Capital Region, which will make 2023 a year devoted to Art Nouveau. BRAFA will be highlighting this movement in several ways. The King Baudouin Foundation and some galleries specialised in this field will be presenting exceptional Art nouveau pieces. The creation of the BRAFA 2023 carpet will be based on original drawings by Victor Horta, and art lovers will be able to attend two “BRAFA Art Talks” devoted to Art nouveau.
