The Cairo Art Fair is Egypt’s largest contemporary art exhibition hosted by and held at The Arts-Mart Gallery.
The Cairo Art Fair (CAF3) showcases the work of over 100 Egyptian artists participating with over 1000 artworks.
The Cairo Art Fair III is perhaps the most non-coformative art fair in the region. Breaking the boundaries in terms of format, participation, duration and presentation, the fair is an unmissable synergy of art and artists.
With a focus of leaving nobody behind, the CAF3 tries to democratically present the widest possible range of contemporary Egyptian talents. Well-established artists side by side with upcoming stars has always been the gallery’s unique strategy to show an honest reflection of today’s Egyptian art scene.
What to expect?
Everything! Well-selected pieces of art covering every little inch of space. Seasoned art lovers and newcomers alike come to explore, learn and look for opportunities amongst the hundreds of works created just for the CAF. An incredible range of prices, styles, varieties and ideas will surely provide something for everyone.
Who to look out for this year?
