It's time for the FNB JoburgArtFair

As the annual, premium visual art event on the African continent, the 2016 FNB JoburgArtFair will see local and international art lovers, makers and gallerists converge on Johannesburg’s Sandton Convention Centre - from 9-11 September.

This year, the Fair will feature 80 exhibitions within 6 categories including Contemporary and Modern Art, Special Projects, Gallery Solo Projects, Limited Editions and Art Platforms. The selected galleries and organisations hail from 17 countries across Africa, Europe and the United States.

The Special Projects programme will manifest as an invitational section that spotlights the artistic landscape of East Africa. This will feature a selection of leading artists and art spaces from Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda to Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan.

As the highlight of this programme, 2016 Featured Artist, Wangechi Mutu (Kenya / USA) will be exhibiting a film and sculptural installation presented by Keyes Art Mile. Further solo presentations by Aida Muluneh(Ethiopia), Jim Chuchu (Kenya), The Nest Collective (Kenya) will feature alongside site-specific works by Serge Alain Nitegeka (Burundi) and Sanaa Gateja (Uganda).

A groundbreaking addition and highlight of the 2016 FNB JoburgArtFair is the first ever series of TEDxJohannesburgSalon Talks themed on the contemporary visual arts of Africa. The programme, presented by Ogogiii magazine – the bi-quarterly magazine known for cutting edge perspectives on African design, culture, business and global affairs – will include a full day of talks presented by dynamic artists, curators and thinkers at the Theatre on the Square at Nelson Mandela Square.

FNB JoburgArtFair is pleased to announce the galleries, art platforms and partners participating in its ninth edition at Sandton Convention Centre, 9-11 September.
