TEFAF Maastricht 2023 Announces TEFAF Showcase Participants With New Expanded Section
Dec 13, 2022 Maastricht, Netherlands
Maastricht, Netherlands - December 13th 2022: Since 2008, TEFAF (The European Fine Art Foundation) has been dedicated to supporting young and emerging dealer talent within the international art market through its TEFAF Showcase initiative. In 2023, the Showcase section will expand to host 10 participating galleries (in previous years the number of participants has been 6), with the expansion set to stay for future iterations of the Fair.
The TEFAF Showcase 2023 participants are Ambrose Naumann Fine Art (USA); Ben Hunter (UK); Callisto Fine Arts (UK); Elliott Fine Art (UK); Frederick Mouraux Gallery (Belgium); Galerie Maxime Flatry (France); Miriam Di Penta Fine Arts (Italy); Pingel Rare Books (France); Willoughby Gerrish (UK); and Zebregs&Röell Fine Art and Antiques (Netherlands).
TEFAF Showcase will take place in the area that has previously been the Works on Paper section, in the upstairs section of the Fair. As a truly standalone section, Showcase exhibitors will benefit from more space and focus in which to present their areas of expertise.
TEFAF selects galleries for Showcase that are between 3 and 10 years old and whose breadth of expertise mirrors the scope of TEFAF Maastricht as a whole. In 2023 visitors to the fair can look forward to exploring Old Masters; 19th century European works; ethnographic art and antiques; early 20th century paintings, drawings and sculpture; Italian & European sculpture; 20th century design; rare books; 20th century British art; and contemporary art, courtesy of these dynamic dealers.
Will Korner, Head of Fairs, says, “As a foundation, TEFAF has always viewed nurturing younger, emerging dealers as central to its mission. This year we have expanded this support and mentorship, reflected by the increased number of dealers taking part in TEFAF Showcase, an initiative which provides participants with the opportunity to exhibit at TEFAF Maastricht. Some of the world's leading dealers across art, antiques, design, modern and contemporary began their art fair journey as part of TEFAF Showcase - we hope this will be the first of many future fairs for this year’s participants.”
TEFAF Maastricht takes place from March 11 – 19, 2023, with invitation only days taking place on March 9 and 10.
