CULTURES

Rue Ernest Allard: Brussels, Belgium

June 07, 2017 - June 11, 2017 Fair June 07, 2017 June 11, 2017 Europe/London CULTURES Rue Ernest Allard: Brussels, Belgium

For several years now, the three organisations, AAB, BAAF and BRUNEAF, have instituted a dynamic synergy in relation to the June events to ensure their wide international recognition. With our successful record in this area all three organisations have decided to join forces and organise a single event in June while retaining their own specific mode of operation. CULTURES – The World Arts Fair will soon become a global reference for seasoned collectors as well as amateurs interested in Asian, antique and non-European art. A simple and ingenious colour code will be used to identify exhibitors and their respective specialities. Our enthusiasm is as great as ever and more than ever we will endeavour to turn Brussels into THE venue for the classical arts.

Some are unique and without any equivalent in the world, such as the sculptures from Gabon (Fang, Kota, Punu), Cameroon (Bangwa), Benin (Fon) and Mali (Dogon, Soninke). Long-awaited by the public, Masterpieces from Africa will enable visitors to discover keynote works of art whose significance is rooted in the cultures of Central and West Africa.
