The premier Mauritius International Art Fair- (MIAF) is a multi-disciplinary contemporary art fair which will be held from 8 th to 11 th August 2019, at Caudan Arts Centre, positioning Mauritius as an art destination and contender for one of the world most artistically and culturally vibrant countries with the aim to educate and introduce original artwork from local and international artists.
The MIAF is an annual rendez-vous for artists from all over the world to gather, network, and engage in artistic dialogue and cultural exchange. MIAF unites artists from around the world – predominantly from neighbouring islands (Rodrigues, Reunion, Madagascar, Seychelles) but also from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Oceania – in the spirit of plugging Mauritian artists into the global art network.
Visitors will have the opportunity to view and purchase an impressive range of art forms, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation, visual, and sound media and assemblage – each of indisputably high quality, yet priced fairly.
The MIAF will feature a carefully curated selection of emerging artists, establish artists, island pavilions, project spaces and a section for showcasing the heritage of Mauritius, alongside stimulating arts activities designed to engage and enthral both visitors and children, including workshops, panel discussions, and live performances.
This event is organized by ZeeArts and their motto is to create Awareness, Accessibility and Appreciation for Arts.
