TEAF Explore Modern and Contemporary Art & Design
It is with heavy hearts that we write to inform you that TEFAF New York 2020, postponed from spring to fall, is now officially canceled. These past few months we have been working hard to plan a socially distanced fair for the fall, taking into account the many protocols that would allow us to open a safe and successful event. Sadly, and perhaps not a surprise to many of you, we have concluded that it will not be possible to host TEFAF New York 2020.
Our decision was reached in close consultation with the TEFAF Board of Trustees along with our exhibitor community, and was affirmed with the unanimous support of the TEFAF Executive Committee.
As much as we had hoped to hold a physical fair at the Park Avenue Armory in October, the uncertainties surrounding health and safety, the limitations on occupancy in the building, the cancelation of the vernissage, restrictions on international travel, and New York City’s strict reopening plan have led us to believe that proceeding with this fair is not in the best interests of the TEFAF community. TEFAF New York is committed to providing our TEFAF New York 2020 exhibitors with a full stand rental reimbursement.
We are pleased to inform you that an enhanced online initiative is underway for the fall. Details will be communicated to you shortly.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support. Please know we are here to listen and we encourage you to contact us if you have any concerns.
With kindest regards from the entire TEFAF team,
Hidde & Sofie
Hidde van Seggelen
Chairman of the Executive Committee
