2014

 

The spring-like atmosphere that surrounded TEFAF 2014 was echoed in the Fair, where strong sales, record crowds — more than 74,000 visitors — and buyer confidence generated a buoyant mood and a new-found market optimism.   Museum sales were widespread and many dealers talked of sales to new clients.  Fair architect Tom Postma made new designs for all the restaurants and food courts at the Fair, re-interpreting their individual characters and atmosphere. The steel sculpture in the entrance hall, ‘Janey Waney’ by Alexander Calder, went on temporary display in the garden of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam after the Fair.

 

TEFAF also hosted Timeless Beauty, a magnificent loan exhibition of around thirty-five drawings from the National Graphic Arts Collection, Munich. The TEFAF Art Symposium was devoted to the topic of design. Addicted to Vintage:  Trends in 20th-Century Design brought together leading international interior designers, design experts and journalists to discuss why this market has exploded over the past ten years.  The 2014 TEFAF Art Market Report by Dr Clare McAndrew had a special focus on the United States and on China. The report showed that the global art and antiques market is almost back to the extraordinary heights of the pre-recession boom years. Following his unfortunate cycling accident in August, Ben Janssens decided in February to resign as chairman of the TEFAF Maastricht Executive Committee.  

 

Willem van Roijen, who has been a member of TEFAF’s Board since 1997, was appointed as his successor.  Between August and February, Robert Aronson, a member of the board since 2011, assumed Ben Janssens’ duties. In March 2013 TEFAF announced that it was exploring the possibilities of developing a high-end art fair for China. As the feedback from many dealers indicated that most felt that exhibiting in mainland China is something that they would consider at a later date, it was concluded in December 2013 that a fair in Beijing was not viable at present. .

 

2013

 

TEFAF adopted a new corporate identity and defined three core values – Excellence, Expertise and Elegance. In 2013 TEFAF Maastricht also had a new design that changed the look of the Fair. Fair architect Tom Postma gave the public areas a more spacious feel by raising the height of the corridors and squares and changing the lighting. There were 266 dealers from twenty countries at this year’s Fair. Eighteen rarely-seen masterpieces from the collection of drawings at the Van Gogh Museum were on display at the Fair for a special exhibition in TEFAF Paper. The TEFAF Art Market Report 2013 was presented at the TEFAF Art Symposium, Rising Stars of the Art World, on Friday, March 15th. The report examined the global art market with a focus on China and Brazil. More than 70,000 people came to TEFAF Maastricht 2013. They were welcomed in the entrance hall of the Fair by ‘Mary Poppins’, a multi-coloured art work by Joana Vasconcelos. On Tuesday, March 19th, TEFAF announced that it had entered into exclusive discussions with Sotheby’s to explore the possibilities of developing a high-end art fair for China, through Sotheby’s joint venture with GeHua in Beijing.
