THE European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) is going to New York. The world’s foremost fair of art, antiques and design will travel to the Park Avenue Armory in New York next October and in May 2017. Building on the 30 year success of TEFAF Maastricht and through a joint venture with Artvest it will launch two TEFAF fairs to be presented annually in New York. TEFAF Fall will focus on art from antiquity to the 20th century; TEFAF Spring will emphasize modern and contemporary art and design.
This year the European Fine Art Fair runs at Maastricht in The Netherlands from March 11-20.
“TEFAF represents the highest level of quality and connoisseurship, which are values we share with the dealers and collectors who participate in our shows,” noted Willem van Roijen, Chairman of TEFAF. “Our fair has also established itself as the leading showcase for introducing fresh works to the marketplace and is further distinguished by its rigorous vetting process for both participating galleries and works of art. These same core principles are the foundation of the fairs that we are conceiving for New York and the U.S.”
