Brussels . Citius, Altius, Fortius… This famous Olympic motto, devised by Pierre de Coubertin, could apply perfectly to BRAFA 2017 as well, in its inspiration to surpass itself,  to offer the best it has and to renew itself after each edition.


To meet this Challenge, 132 Antiquarians and gallerists from 16 countries have responded to the organiser´s invitation to offer the most beautiful, rarest and most refined of their respective specialities: Archeology, Paintings, furniture, sculpture, tribal art, silverware, jewelry, design, contemporary art. All the multimillennial diversity of artistic talent was gathered together and offered to the curiosity of collectors and art lovers from all Europe and beyond. From the 21th to the 29th of January 2017 the artistic heart beat in Brussels!


As one of the first international fairs of the year, Brafa 2017  presents itself as a giant  art´s lovers cabinet, blending with panache the different types of art. Brafa adopts the vision of the collector, who today seeks synergy among the different eras and styles, welcomes their intersection and is open to the diversity among the cultures and trends.


BRAFA 2017 paid homage to Julio Le Parc, who is a major influence behind the contemporary art, Julio Le Parc. 


Born in 1928 in Mendoza, a town of the Andes. Pioneer of OP and Kinetic Art, founder of G.R.A.V. ( Groupe de recherche d´art visuel) winner of the international Grand prize in Painting at the Venice Biennial 1966, Julio Le Parc is a forthright committed artist.


His  abundant work, in its many forms, impregnated with a spirit of research and experimentation, explores the visual field, movement. light and the relationship between the work and the spectator.


We want to interest spectators, release them from their inhibitions, make them relax.

 We want to get them to participate.
We want to put them in a situation which they themselves initiate and transform.
We want them to be oriented towards interaction with other spectators.
We want to develop a great capacity for perception and action in the spectator.”

Julio Le Parc.
