TEFAF Maastricht 2021 in-person fair canceled | TEFAF Online 2021 continues

May 19, 2021

(Amsterdam, The Netherlands) May 19, 2021 – After careful consideration
of current global circumstances, The European Fine Art Foundation
has made the decision to cancel the in-person component of
TEFAF Maastricht 2021, originally slated for September 11 - 19, 2021. The
second iteration of TEFAF’s digital fair, TEFAF Online 2021, will run from
September 9 - 13, 2021.

TEFAF is dedicated to strengthening the success of its community of
exhibitors and collectors with this fall’s digital fair, which will feature the
theme “The Art of Collecting.” No other art fair can celebrate the
collecting experience quite like TEFAF -- Across categories, across time,
and through today’s most interesting exhibitors, TEFAF’s selection of over
7,000 years of art history is unmatched. The concept of “The Art of
Collecting” will touch every facet of TEFAF Online 2021, from the way
users navigate the site, to the narratives presented by each of the

Exhibitors will display up to three artworks, which will tell a single story of
historical, personal, or artistic significance. The fair will also feature
TEFAF Collection Pages, which will sort objects, not by exhibitor, but by
medium, period, and section, in addition to creative categories. These
developments to the digital fair, together with a culturally rich itinerary,
foster an intimate and educational experience for seasoned collectors
and new buyers alike.

TEFAF’s in-person fairs will resume with a hybrid fair celebrating TEFAF’s
35th anniversary in March of 2022.

“TEFAF is focused on gathering our community of dealers, collectors, and
vendors for our signature fair experience in a physical setting as soon as
circumstances allow,” said Hidde van Seggelen, TEFAF Chairman. “In the
meantime, we are excited to present a new and improved edition of
TEFAF Online this September, and look forward to coming together in
Maastricht for TEFAF’s 35th anniversary next March.”


TEFAF, established in 1988, Maastricht, The Netherlands, stands for The
European Fine Art Foundation. It is a not-for-profit organization that
champions expertise, scholarship and variety in the global art community
and is highly respected for its meticulous vetting standards. TEFAF fairs
take place in Maastricht and New York. Proven by the exhibitors selected
for its fairs, TEFAF acts as an expert guide for both private and
institutional collectors, and inspires lovers and buyers of art worldwide.
TEFAF is governed by a Board of Trustees (BoT), consisting of 21 members
from the art and antiques community, the majority of whom are TEFAF
exhibitors, and guided by an Executive Committee (EC), composed of
seven members appointed by the BoT. tefaf.com
