FNB JoburgArtFair 2018 Stevenson Zanele Muholi
Stevenson, Zanele Muholi

The FNB JoburgArtFair 2018 now clocks in as the largest and most established art fair in Africa to date. This year, over 45 galleries from 14 countries across Africa, Europe and the US, as well as an exciting addition of 15 new exhibitors, will make it the key event on the 2018 art calendar.

All-in-one showcase

Taking place from 6 to 9 September 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, the FNB JoburgArtFair 2018 will be an all-in-one showcase of fresh perspectives and sought-after contemporary African art – with particularly strong representation of exhibitors from Angola, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

New exhibitors from the continent include Namibian artist collective NJE Collective, who are based out of Windhoek, and Arte de Gema Contemporary gallery from Maputo, while This is Not A Whitecube will make their Johannesburg debut as the third Luanda gallery in the line-up (after ELA – Espaço Luanda Arte and MOV’ART Gallery).

Artlogic team 

Two new team members include Amy Ellenbogen as curator of galleries and VIP, and Kabelo Malatsie as curator: Talks Programme have added to the diverse expertise of the existing Artlogic team, which includes Mandla Sibeko as fair director, Dr Cobi Labuscagne as director in charge of management and Nicole Siegenthaler fair manager.

Pooling their considerable resources, knowledge, experience and in-depth understanding of contemporary African art, this team is preparing to inspire the art community – investors, aspirant collectors, creative aficionados and critics – as well as an art-curious public who need that annual visual crash-course to keep abreast of emerging and established artists.
