BRAFA Presents Christo as their Guest of Honor in 2018!

December 12, 2017
A philosophy graduate interested in theory, politics and art. Alias of Jelena Martinović.

One of the longest-running and most prestigious fairs in the world, BRAFA is the first major art event of the year, considered a reliable barometer of the art market.

Organized every year by the nonprofit Belgian Antiques Fair Association, it brings a record number of antiques, art and furniture galleries to Brussels, presenting an eclectic selection of rare pieces from all over the world.

Founded in 1956 on the initiative of Charles Van Hove and Mamy Wouters, the long-standing President and Vice-President of the Belgian Chamber of Antiques Dealers, BRAFA is now recognized worldwide as one of the leading international fairs in Europe, attracting more than 60,000 visitors.

Coming back for its 63rd edition to Tour & Taxis this January, BRAFA 2018 will bring together 134 galleries from 16 countries, covering 20 specialties and showing between 10,000 and 15,000 pieces. The exciting exhibition program will be accompanied by a comprehensive series of art talks.

In addition, the fair will welcome Christo, one of the most renowned and influential contemporary artists today, as a special guest of honor. Enhancing the genre of land art alongside his wife Jeanne-Claude, the duo is famous for creating large-scale installations that presented a different approach to the environment and raised our expectations of it. The fair will now present one of his historic works from the 1960s.

Christo as the Guest of Honor

Welcoming Christo as the guest of honor, BRAFA will present a piece titled Three Store Fronts from 1965-66, specially chosen for the fair by the artist.

First displayed at the municipal Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the piece was later included in the exhibition Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Early Works, 1958-69 at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin in 2002. The largest work ever on show at BRAFA, it is more than 14m long and 2.5m tall.

The piece is part of the series of life-sized Show Windows and Store Fronts created after the duo emigrated to New York in 1964, recalling the gigantic dimensions of the city’s architecture. First Store Fronts were made out of architectural elements found in scrap heaps and the remnants of demolished buildings, draped with fabric or wrapping paper.

Initially created in the warm color tones with the charm of hand-craft, the design gave way to an industrial frigidity with cold and clinically polished metallic surfaces in 1965. Having elements that have been carried throughout the artists’ career, these pieces can be seen as forerunners of projects such as the Valley Curtain, the Running Fence or The Gates.
