The Kenya Art Fair is Kenya’s premier art fair in Nairobi, focusing on contemporary visual art from the artists in Kenya. The art fair was established to recognize, and nurture excellence in the contemporary visual arts and represents the only fair of this kind in the region open to the local and international art scene. The organizing team’s mission is to promote emerging and established artists and make contemporary art accessible to all.

With all the major stakeholders in the visual arts industry exhibiting, visitors will find everything that an artist would need to survive in this field of work, all under one roof, and also have the opportunity to view, learn and even make purchases. Never before in this region has there been an event of this scale dedicated to the visual arts and with the increasing rise in levels of disposable income among Kenyans, coupled with the growing development of the arts as a lucrative profession, stakeholders in the arts industry cannot afford to miss this event.

Dates: 17th to 19th November 2017 



As part of the Kenya Art Fair’s mission to promote the growth of the visual arts in the region, each edition of the fair includes the Wasanii Exhibition which exhibits emerging artists alongside established artists.  The focus of this year’s exhibition is COHESION.

Interactive Art Talks delivered by art professionals, artists, collectors and gallery owners are set to take place throughout the 3 days, allowing you the opportunity to listen, learn, think and interact.

We encourage you to come out and further these 2-hour conversations on all things art.



Since its inception, the Kenya Art Fair has set out to support the role of art spaces in developing the careers of artists as well as promoting the growth of the visual art sector.
