The first international art fair on the continent, the FNB JoburgArtFair plays a pivotal role in supporting the contemporary arts landscape in Africa. The Fair provides a space for leading artists, galleries, collectors, writers, thinkers and art lovers to congregate.
Special features of the Fair include a series of curated Special Projects, a VIP Programme hosting top international curators and directors from institutions like Tate Modern, the Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou and Performa as well as a Talks Programme that invites art-world figures, philosophers, and critical theorists to deliver key-note lectures and participate in panel discussions. The 2018 Fair will also see the eighth edition of the #FNB Art Prize – a major opportunity for an artist to realise a new work at the Fair.
The FNB JoburgArtFair welcomes local and international galleries and in particular those that have an interest or link to African Contemporary Art. Image credit:

11h00 – 12h00 This conversation focuses on the role of collectors in supporting artistic practice beyond buying artworks. Emile Stipp is a well-respected collector who has been supporting artists not only through buying but also supporting the publication of catalogues, artist’s books and photobooks and playing a role as a patron of museums such as Tate. #Artforeveryone #AltAReview
