Art as a legacy

Investec explores the power of art as a legacy through a collaboration with origami artist, Ross Symons. "Legacy for me is not what you leave for somebody, but what you leave in somebody," he says.

It's all about precision, paper and passion!

For the 2022 edition, local and international art lovers had the opportunity to engage with the art online or in person, with Investec Cape Town Art Fair offering a hybrid of both platforms. The ninth edition will bring together the excitement of the long-running programme with a special new addition.

The new ‘ALT’ section takes a different spin on a similar theme, inviting alternative galleries to portray the way in which the pandemic has affected how artists engage with the real and more pressingly, virtual worlds of art. 

Investec has been the title sponsor of the Cape Town Art Fair since 2018.

“We believe art can break down barriers and bring people together. So, we’re delighted to welcome back a face-to-face Fair, combined with the digital edition, which could bring the world of art to a potentially larger, more diverse audience.”
Peta Dixon, Investec’s head of Sponsorships.

She goes on to say, “Cape Town tourism has been badly impacted due to Covid19 travel restrictions, but the 9th edition of the Investec Cape Town Art Fair attracted tens of thousands of visitors to the mother city, already synonymous with art and creativity.”
