Photos from THAT ART FAIR 2016

From niche to commercial, THAT ART FAIR, founded by Suzette and Brendan Bell-Roberts of Art Africa, showcased a diversity of work to suit everyone’s tastes and pockets. Dedicated to growing a fresh generation of patrons, the fair provided a platform for established and emerging artists to exhibit work and meet directly with potential collectors. Installations by Chiro Nott and Heath Nash, collections curated by local galleries, a custom made bar by Lady Skollie and a film viewing area for THAT FILM FOCUS turned the exhibition hall at the Palms Lifestyle and Décor Centre into a social hub for foreigners and local art lovers. 

TAF includes the afro-futuristic work of invited artist Emo de Medeiros, performance by Sue Pam Grant, abstract paintings by Hugh Bryne, our own Travel exhibtion and near the entrance, the satirical luxury coffins by Paa Joe – to name few. THAT ART FAIR is geared towards “African artists who work under the radar of traditional art establishments, who do things a little differently”. The fair put the spotlight on African artists, and despite being a young contender in art arena, has international appeal and heralds much promise for the future of African art.
