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.
Friday: 12pm to 8pm
Saturday: 10am to 6pm
Sunday: 10am to 5pm
