Art Week Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa
23 Nov 2013 - 07 Dec 2013

ART WEEK CAPE TOWN 2013 follows on from the inaugural Art Week Cape Town 2012. An initiative of the Contemporary Art Development Trust (CADT), the event is aimed at increasing the visibility of, and strengthening, the visual art industry of Cape Town. The second rendition of Art Week Cape Town is starting on the 23 November and ending on 7 December.

For one week each year galleries, museums, arts organisations and artists will collaborate to create a strong public focus on the art scene of Cape Town.

Participating galleries, institutions and individuals are included in a coordinated programme of openings, events, and open studios throughout greater Cape Town. The programme is open to the public, with a view to providing a dedicated and accessible time and space for experiencing different manifestations of contemporary art in society.

The schedule includes events as the public opening of the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art,  openings at blank projects, Stevenson, Brundyn + and the AVA. It also includes talks, walkabouts and final year exhibitions.
