Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), a division of FirstRand Bank Limited, has partnered Turbine Art Fair as the headline sponsor.

RMB is committed to positively transforming lives through the arts and the growth of the creative economy. Through the RMB Turbine Art Fair we aim to enhance the visual arts market in an environment that is inclusive, accessible and proudly African,” says Alison Badenhorst, Head of RMB Corporate Marketing, regarding RMB’s headline sponsorship of the event.

Badenhorst concludes, “The business philosophy core to RMB’s 40-year history of success is ‘Traditional values. Innovative Ideas’. The visual arts both capture and communicate powerfully across this spectrum, reflecting the spirit of the time and fueling socio/economic and political discussion that may otherwise remain unheard. It is refreshing to see artists who, through their works, influence robust discussion, action or reaction, because of the relative permanence of their pieces in individual or corporate collections.”
