The continent’s artists to stand up in Sandton

Jozi art lovers will be on high alert this weekend when The FNB JoburgArtFair takes over the Sandton Convention Centre. The international art fair plays a pivotal role in supporting the contemporary arts landscape in Africa and will take place from Friday, September 9, to Sunday the 11th.

The Fair provides a space for leading artists, galleries, collectors, writers, thinkers and art lovers to congregate. Johannesburg is home to a burgeoning and vibrant art scene, and a new order of art communities that are seizing the contemporary art agenda.
The event attracts a wide audience, creating a platform for dialogue and exchange, which reaches beyond the realm of the arts. The Fair spearheads a diverse ‘Joburg Art Week’ with various events happening around the city from open studios, gallery openings, workshops and debates.
