The Design Network Africa exhibition was held at Arts On Main from the 24th till the 27th of September 2011 at Arts on Main in the Maboneng precinct of Johannesburg. The exhibition showcased designs from leading African designers alongside other work from DNA members.
The inaugural exhibition will function as a pilot to a PACE Fair, intended as an annual event in Johannesburg and Africa’s only Contemporary Design Fair. The choice of the Maboneng Precinct for this event is strategic for various reasons – not only does it facilitate onsite interaction between the members who will be accommodated in the precinct, it will allow visitors to view the site for the proposed Museum of African Design (MoAD) in the precinct which is set to open in early 2012.
Design Network Africa was a great platform to bring together the design across the African Continent and promises to be fantastic way for designers to reach international markets through endeavours such as holding workshops in other African countries, securing attendance at various design or art fairs in Africa and Europe and encouraging ongoing collaboration, mentorship and interaction between the members.
