There are no changes to TEFAF Maastricht 2021 made. The art fair will run online from September 9th until September 13th.
The European Fine Art Fair, widely known as TEFAF, was founded in 1988. Every year, it treats the world to a feast for the eyes - namely, 7,000 years of the finest works of art.
It has since branched out into TEFAF New York Spring, which covers modern and contemporary art and design, and TEFAF New York Fall, which specializes in all art from antiquity to the 1920s. That said, TEFAF Maastricht has all that and more in its roster from the paintings of Old Masters to 20th Century art and design. All have passed through the eyes of world-class experts across various disciplines so that both private and institutional collectors can purchase well-preserved, properly attributed, and authentic masterpieces.
Professional dealers, gallerists, and collectors come to TEFAF to buy and sell museum-grade artwork. If you want to put your finger on the pulse of the world art market, TEFAF Maastricht is the place to be.
TEFAF Maastricht is a weeklong yearly art fair begun by the European Fine Art Foundation. Open to both the public and trade visitors, fair hours are from 11:00 am in the morning to 19:00 pm in the evening every day except for the last day, during which the general public must vacate the premises at 18:00 pm.
Usually held in March, the 2021 edition of TEFAF Maastricht will be held from in late May at the MECC Maastricht. The MECC Maastricht is located in Maastricht City’s outer ring.
Getting there should be easy no matter what mode of transport you take. The MECC Maastricht is a stone’s throw from Maastricht Central Station and a five-minute walk from the Maastrich-Randwyck station. There is always a bus you can catch from the city. The MECC is also fifteen minutes away from Maastricht-Aachen Airport. The city of Maastricht is accessible via various European motorways, such as the A2, the E5 (Amsterdam-Brussels), and the A79 (Liège-Aachen/Cologne).
What You Can Expect as an Exhibitor
- Every exhibitor undergoes a rigorous vetting process with the latest cutting-edge technology and scientific methods, so you can expect all the premier galleries of the world to be in attendance.
- Artworks and antiques are also checked against the Art Loss Register, which collates the world’s missing, stolen, and looted pieces. All this ensures the confidence of potential buyers.
- New galleries do get a chance to display their showcases at TEFAF Maastricht, which believes in giving new blood a chance to experience a major international art fair. Artwork to be found at the fair include: antiques, sculptures, paintings, photographs, illustrations, and jewelry.
