FNB JoburgArtFair Expands in its Eleventh Year
In its eleventh year, the FNB JoburgArtFair 2018 clocks in as the largest and most established art fair on the continent to date. This year, over 45 galleries from fourteen countries across Africa, Europe and the United States – as well as an exciting addition of 15 new exhibitors – will make it the key event on the 2018 art calendar not to be missed.
Taking place from 6 – 9 September 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, the Fair will be an all-in-one showcase of fresh perspectives and sought after content on contemporary African art – with particularly strong representation of exhibitors from Angola, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe. New exhibitors from the continent include Namibian artist collective NJE Collective based out of Windhoek and Arte de Gema Contemporary gallery from Maputo, while This is Not A Whitecube will make their Johannesburg debut as the third Luanda gallery in the line up (after ELA - Espaço Luanda Arte and MOV’ART Gallery).
Two new team members – Amy Ellenbogen as Curator: Galleries and VIP and Kabelo Malatsie as Curator: Talks Programme – have added to the diverse expertise of the existing Artlogic team, which includes Mandla Sibeko: Fair Director, Dr Cobi Labuscagne: Director in charge of operations and management and Nicole Siegenthaler: Fair Manager.
Pooling their considerable resources, knowledge, experience and in-depth understanding of contemporary African art, this team is preparing to inspire the art community – investors, aspirant collectors, creative aficionados and critics – as well as an art-curious public who need that annual visual crash-course to keep abreast of emerging and established artists.
