Now in its sixth year, ART WEEK CAPE TOWN will be taking place between Wednesday 6th February – Sunday 17th February 2019!

ART WEEK CAPE TOWN 2019 will have a strong focus on practitioners within the contemporary arts, with the aim of instigating conversations between the public and the artists themselves. Positioned to create a platform for artists, including those who are not affiliated with galleries and institutions, the upcoming edition of ART WEEK CAPE TOWN will generate a keen interest in artist-run initiatives.

The upcoming ART WEEK CAPE TOWN will consist of a two-part programme. The first, which has been present since the founding of ART WEEK, will be a collation of all contemporary art events happening in Cape Town during this time. This programme allows extensive audiences access to information and otherwise “secondary” events taking place in the city during the period of the INVESTEC CAPE TOWN ART FAIR.

The second component of the 2019 programme, is a carefully curated selection of highlights and key events by various parties in collaboration with ART WEEK, as well as ART WEEK instigated activations in line with the 2019 focus on artist-led events.






ART WEEK CAPE TOWN 2019 is sponsored by Strauss & Co and Business and Arts South Africa (BASA).
