From March 9th-19th TEFAF welcomed 275 internationally renowned exhibitors and attracted more then 100,000 visitors to the the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre), Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Alongside the artworld elite, TEFAF attracts all things Luxury. We enjoyed the courtesy cars taking us to the fair every day sponsored by Maserati and BMW.

With it unrivalled vetting commitees, which scrutinizes every single item which is brought up to display, TEFAF ascertains highest demands in quality, authenticity and condition of the works. Through the careful selection of its exhibitors, TEFAF enables visitors to make unexpected connections across disciplines creating a marketplace for the highest level of collecting.

Not inevitable to mention, that all protagonists on various areas of the art world are convening in Maastricht for the opening weekend of TEFAF Art Fair. As a matter of course, we, Folly & Muse, did not miss out on this occasion.

Like a painting itself the installations of flowers continue throughout the fair.

One of our all time favorite's at these art fair must be Anish Kapoor with his Mirror pieces - this one titled 'Random Triangle Mirror' at Kukje Gallery breaks light and reflections into a million facets.


These were some of our highlights. We hope you enjoyed them.
