How do I apply?

To apply as a participant, please go to our application page

When do applications close?

Applications close on November 1st. Participants will be notified of their acceptance into the fair on a rolling basis. All applicants will be notified of their status by November 5th 2019.

I am an artist with gallery representation. Should I apply as an Artist or Gallery?

You can have gallery representation and still participate in the fair as an artist. However, if your gallery will be present throughout the fair alongside you (e.g. to help with set-up or sales), we ask that they apply as a gallery to coincide with our administrative and guest ticketing processes. 

Do I need to be present for set-up?

Not necessarily. We have a limited number of screens and projectors reserved for participating artists unable to be there in person, and whose works are easily presented through the use of a digital file. In lieu of this, CADAF reserves the right to curate the exhibited works in the artist’s absence. All other artists must be present for set-up with their own equipment. Participants will have access to the fair location for set-up on Tuesday 3rd December, 2 days prior to general admission.


We are not responsible for any participant’s travel fees or shipping requirements. All equipment and tools required for the display of artworks is the responsibility of the participants and should be accounted for ahead of time. 

I am from overseas and will be participating, or assisting a participant. Can you help me with my Visa?

CADAF is unable to provide advice on Visas. We do, however, send letters to successful participants confirming your acceptance and invitation to participate in the fair.

How many guest passes do I get as a participant? 

Artists : x2 guest passes per day of the fair, as well as additional guest passes required for set-up 

Galleries, Collectives and Companies: x5 guest passes for set-up and per day of the fair. 

Please get in touch with us ahead of time to let us know if you will require additional passes for set-up. 

What is my exhibition space?

Once you have been selected as a participant, CADAF will work closely with you alongside other participants to provide an expertly curated show for our visitors. We cater the space provided to each artist or gallery dependent on the number and size of the works accepted. We are not a traditional fair with cookie-cutter booth sizes, and will adapt the environment to best showcase each piece.
