Highlights from the 2015 FNB JoburgArtFair

This weekend artists, collectors, culture experts and art-lovers alike made their way to the Sandton Convention Centre for the eighth annual FNB JoburgArtFair. With first-time curator Lucy MacGarry bringing a fresh perspective to the proceedings and a re-envisioned layout in collaboration with architect firm Studium, the Fair hosted over 50 exhibitors from seven countries including South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.

This year’s FNB Art Prize winner Turiya Magadlela showcased her body of work Imihuzuko, the focal point of which was a large-scale installation of steal institutional beds. Featured Artist Candice Breitz presented two works, most notably the two-part seven-channel video installation Him and Her. SMITH Studio, Kalashnikovv and Sulger-Buel Lovell formed the line up of Young Galleries and a central theatre hosted a programme of film screenings, performances and talks – creating a more diversified and multifaceted experience all round. These are a few of our highlights from the 2015 FNB JoburgArtFair, keep an eye out for a wrap-up video coming soon.
