First National Bank remains committed to the support of arts and culture as it celebrates all that African contemporary art represents. FNB have been the proud sponsors of the FNB JoburgArtFair for the past seven years.
“As a proudly South African bank with roots that extend into several other African countries, First National Bank (FNB) endeavours to sustain the support of art on our continent through the FNB JoburgArtFair, one of the biggest and oldest fairs on the continent.
FNB has always been passionate about art because we recognise that artistic expression involves creativity and imagination, which we know to be key drivers of innovation. The annual FNB JoburgArtFair provides a platform for more than 400 artists from across the continent and continues to draw a huge array of creative individuals and art connoisseurs from across the globe. Our commitment to the Fair ensures that we continue to introduce African artists to an international audience of art enthusiasts, curators, writers and buyers.
FNB believes that the Fair continues to play an important role in harnessing the value that artists bring to society and has thus established itself as the meeting place for those interested in African contemporary art. The demand to attend the FNB JoburgArtFair continues to exceed expectations year on year, ultimately situating it as an important stage for both artists and galleries. We believe that, currently, there’s no better showcase and experience in the art scene on the continent.
In 2011, we introduced the coveted FNB Art Prize, which we hope will help reinforce our endorsement of the artist’s valued contribution to our diverse cultural fabric.
Congratulations to all the artists exhibiting this year. May you all continue to create, innovate and inspire. We believe that the 2016 FNB JoburgArtFair will further contribute towards the global appeal of African artists and their work. We are proud to be in a position to provide a platform for artistic expression.”
