The FNB JoburgArtFair is Africa’s leading art fair focused on contemporary art from the continent and diaspora. Now in its twelfth year, it continues to strengthen this position by presenting the finest of contemporary African art alongside memorable exhibitions and groundbreaking initiatives.
Special features of the Fair include a series of curated Special Projects, a VIP Programme hosting top international curators and directors from institutions like Tate Modern, the Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou and Performa as well as a Talks Programme that invites art-world figures, philosophers, and critical theorists to deliver key-note lectures and participate in panel discussions. The 2019 Fair will also see the ninth edition of the FNB Art Prize – a major opportunity for an artist to realise a new work at the Fair.
The FNB JoburgArtFair welcomes local and international galleries and in particular those that have an interest or link to African Contemporary Art to apply. The 2018 selection committee was made up of Joost Bosland (Stevenson), Jonathan Garnham (blank projects), Monna Mokoena, (Gallery MOMO), Baylon Sandri (SMAC Gallery) and Rakeb Sile (Addis Fine Art) and chaired in a non-voting capacity by FNB JoburgArtFair Curator Amy Ellenbogen.
Artlogic would like to thank First National Bank for their vision and ongoing support as the primary sponsor of the Fair.
