The Cape Town Art Fair 2017 Talks Programme is an undeniable highlight of the fair and run daily from Friday through to Sunday. There is no additional cost to attend once you have purchased a ticket for the fair itself, which grants access to displays by over 80 leading galleries and cultural institutions, interactive installations, walkabouts and special projects.
Headlining the Talks Programme are former South African Constitutional Court Judge Albie Sachs, and Curator of The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art in Washington DC, Karen Milbourne. Invited speakers will address current issues such as collection building, investing in art, as well as reflect on new approaches to curatorial practices in Africa and its Diaspora. The audience is in good hands thanks to experts like Steven Kettle from Stonehage Fleming Art Management, and independent curators Moses Serubiri (Uganda), Gabi Ngcobo (South Africa), Elise Atangana (France/Cameroon), and Sarah Rifky (Lebanon) among others for their insights.
