About the Fair.
Kenya Art Fair 2014, is Kenya’s premier art fair in Nairobi, focused on contemporary visual art from the artists in Kenya. The art fair is established to nurture, appreciate and recognize 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 visual artists 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.
