The New Art Fairs Calendar for August 2020

[28/07/2020]

Although some events have managed to maintain themselves for years at the heart of the summer season, it’s not generally considered the best time for art fairs. So – given the current pandemic and resulting economic context – one could be forgiven for imagining that none of the summer ‘art’ activities would be running this year. Not so…. The Art Nocturne Kokke fair (Belgium) will open its 45th edition in August. Two very young fairs are also maintaining their events – the Miaf and the Marfa Invitational – will both opening their second editions despite the risk of far fewer international visitors. The attendance shortfall shouldn’t be too dramatic for the small Mauritian fair (2,300 visitors in 2019), but it could well be sharp for the Marfa art fair in Busan in the west of Texas, after attracting 38,000 visitors to its first edition last year.

Of the 22 art fairs that would normally have been hosted during the month of August 2020, six have been canceled, five others have been postponed, three have gone online. A minority – eight – are still going ahead.
