BRAFABrussels Antiques & Fine Art Fair 26 Jan - 3 Feb 2019
Celebrating its 64ht edition, BRAFA is the world's longest running and one of Europe's leading art and antiques fairs. The first major art event of the calendar year, it is considered a reliable barometer of the art market.
BRAFA, short for Brussels Antiques & Fine Arts Fair is organized every year by the Belgian Antiques Fair not-for-profit association. The first ever fair in 1955 was held in the Arlequin Hall of the Galerij Louiza. This first Belgian Antiques Fair or Foire des Antiquaires de Belgique copied the example of Grosvenor House in London and the Prinsenhof in Delft, but preceded similar fairs set up in Paris, Florence and Munich.
As the fair became increasingly successful and more and more antiques dealers wanted to take part, the need arose for a hall on a scale that could meet this growing demand. The range of art objects on display also continued to expand. Between 1967 and 2003, the fair was held in the "Palais des Beaux-Arts" in Brussels. In 2004 the Belgium Antiques Fair moved to the Tour & Taxis industrial site in the Noordwijk district of Brussels alongside the Willebroek canal: a true gem of Belgian industrial architectural heritage. Now that an ample exhibition space with a huge capacity was guaranteed, the Antiques Fair purposely sought to significantly increase the number of participants. Having grown from twenty Belgian antique dealers at the outset to around one hundred and twenty participants from both Belgium and abroad, the last few years have seen the Antiques Fair become an international fair on a European scale.
The Antiques Fair works hard to increase the quality of the participants each year, but always with the aim of retaining its own individual character. As well as this internationalisation, over the years the fair has also embraced modern and contemporary art. The Belgian Antiques Fair not-for-profit association was placed under the High Protection of Her Majesty the Queen on 30 September 2009.
