The Turbine Art Fair (TAF18) brought to you by The Forum Company, returns to the iconic Turbine Hall in Newtown from 12th – 15th July 2018.
The Turbine Art Fair (TAF) is an established highlight on South Africa’s arts calendar. TAF is South Africa’s largest art fair by audience number. More importantly, TAF is the African epicenter of emerging art, the champion of the ‘next great’. TAF is world class, yet accessible and reasonably affordable. TAF powers the imaginations of early-stage collectors. TAF launches the careers of emerging artists. TAF boosts young galleries. Our aim is to educate, entertain and sell. In a word, our vision is to “Inspire”.
Exhibitors whether galleries, collectives or dealers have been invited to exhibit contemporary artwork priced below R50 000.00. Individual artists are able to participate either as part of a collective or by applying to one of the special projects. TAF18 is a notable event and all applications have been carefully considered to ensure compliance with the core values of TAF18 and its organisers.
“Visitors to TAF18 can expect to see over 50 galleries and exhibits showcasing the best contemporary and emerging African talent. TAF is not just an art fair! Visitors to the fair can expect live music daily, artisan food and drink, books and publications children’s programme and much more!” says Glynis Hyslop Managing Director of The Forum Company, the go–to company in Johannesburg for upmarket, stylish and sophisticated events, including conferences and weddings. The Forum Company is the main sponsor and organiser of TAF18.
