Fair TEFAF Maastricht prematurely closed
ARTinvestment.RU   12 марта 2020

One of the galleries-экспонентов identified the virus COVID-19

the Unprecedented decision to close was made by the organizers quickly in just a few hours after the appearance in the press information that one of the art-дилеров participating in the fair, received a positive test result for coronavirus.

a Fast reaction and determination in taking action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 distinguishes fair TEFAF Maastricht from other art institutions. For example, Art Basel Hong Kong could not come to such decision, originally planning to cancel the fair and to move it to another date and promising participants a discount for further participation in the fair.

a rapid decision on the closure of the fair was possible thanks to the cooperation of representatives of the authorities and TEFAF Maastricht. Commenting on the situation in press-релизе issued by the management of the fair, Nanna the Decking, the Chairman of TEFAF, said: "Given recent events in the regions around Maastricht and growing concern, we do not consider it appropriate to continue to work the fair. We want to thank our exhibitors, visitors and staff for their trust and support in this unprecedented situation. The community always brought TEFAF in Maastricht, the best art in the world, we are proud to be seen how professionally and how cohesive our family TEFAF behaved in these unprecedented circumstances."

Complementing the words of Decking, Annemarie Penn those Stark, the mayor of Maastricht, said: "I support and respect this decision...We are proud of our longstanding partnership with TEFAF and know that this strong bond will help us through these difficult times."

the fair TEFAF Maastricht 2020 was attended by 282 galleries from Europe and America. For five days, from 7 to 11 March, the fair has taken tens of thousands of visitors and held several important multi-million dollar transactions, the largest of which was selling work, "Peasant village house" by van Gogh for €15 million

the Next fair TEFAF — TEFAF New York Spring — is scheduled for may 8-11, 2020.

And very soon our website will have an exclusive interview with Nanna the Decking.
