The Joburg Art Fair was started three years ago by Artlogic with First National Bank as the primary sponsor. It is the only art fair on the African continent and the only art fair in the world to focus on African contemporary art.
Over the three year period it has become a meeting place for those interested in African contemporary art. The Joburg Art Fair is a small, boutique fair committed to showcasing the best art available, to galleries interested in this region. As it is the only large scale annual visual arts event in South Africa, the Fair makes an effort to give exposure to artists who work outside of the gallery circuit and routinely curate spaces for tertiary institutions, or project spaces that result from proposals submitted to Artlogic.
The plan for 2011 is to curate a space that is welcoming and where visitors can spend an entire day. A food area that will sport four of the country’s top wine estates and a Pommery Champagne lounge will be present to make the day extra special.
Venue: Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton
Date: Friday, 23rd of September to Sunday, 25th of September, 2011
