Tribal Art Fair online this spring 2022

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

AMSTERDAM. Following on from the great success of the previous online Tribal Art Fairs (TAF) held during lockdown in autumn 2020 and spring 2021, Tribal Art Fair online is scheduled to take place again from Thursday 21 April at 3pm until Monday 25 April 2022 at 10pm (Dutch time) at and is free to access.

An established and important international event for tribal art from Africa, Oceania, Asia and the Americas, the Tribal Art Fair has been held annually at De Duif in Amsterdam since 2003.

The pandemic saw the organiser, Finette Lemaire of Galerie Lemaire, switch to an online fair in 2020. Such was the success of the first online event that she introduced another online fair last Spring, returning to organise the 19th TAF back at De Duif in October 2021. Over the years, TAF has amassed an impressive following of collectors, dealers, museum curators, interior designers and discerning members of the public. This Spring 2022, some 25 galleries are showing up to 50 of their latest acquisitions. As items sell, each dealer will refresh their stock for sale online by adding up to another 10 pieces on Saturday 23 April, all for sale. The eight Dutch galleries participating are joined by experts from the UK, USA, Spain, Germany, France, Austria and Belgium.
