68 international dealers from nine countries are represented at the first ‘Cultures: The World Art Fair’ in Brussels, 8-12 June 2016.

The major Brussels-based organisations AAB (Asian Art in Brussels), BAAF (Brussels Ancient Art Fair) and BRUNEAF (Brussels Non European Art Fair) have decided to join forces and this year organise a single event while retaining their established individuality, with all three catalogues in one single publication. A map of the city sees dealers assigned a different colour code dependant upon their specialist world regions and there is a series of lectures free to attend at ArtConnoisseurs. Among those participating are Carlo Cristi, Didier Claes, Jacques How Choong, Mingei Arts Gallery, Galerie Flak, Famarte/Farah Massart, Karim Grusenmeyer and Michael Woerner.
