Known for being the only art fair on the African continent, and the only art fair in the world
, to focus on African contemporary art, the FNB Joburg Art Fair
is gearing up for its 4th year.
Over the past three years since its inception, this small, 'boutique' art fair has become a meeting place for those interested in African contemporary art, showcasing the best galleries interested in this region.
According to the website, 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.
Each year our visitor numbers grow to include more foreigners, more students, and more of the general public interested in this kind of high-end contemporary event."
