Special Projects 2017


Fresh Produce presented by RMB Talent Unlocked is curated again by Rolihlahla Mhlanga and is aimed at creating an opportunity for selected artists who are young and emerging, to participate and showcase on a global stage.

Assemblage in collaboration with VANSA and Turbine Art Fair will be running a 6 month intensive workshop programme that integrates practical art-making (focusing on process and conceptual development) and professional practice training. The aim is to provide the artists with a comprehensive programme that encompasses the necessary tools to help build and sustain a career in the industry. The ultimate outcome is to strengthen the artists work as a whole by providing those who participate not only a guide through the development of their work but very importantly the tools in order to put their career into action within the industry.

There are a total of 15 artists that have been selected to exhibit at TAF17: Johan Stegman, Alexander Von Klitzing, Katlego Modiri, Nkhensani Rihlampfu, Claudia Monyama, Sechaba Meloa, Odette Graskei, Mmabatho Mokalapa, Mary-Lee Makunye, Nosipho Nombuso Maseko, Lutendo Malatji, Chrisel van der Merwer, Kiyara Ananmalay, Isaac Zavale and Jodi Tracey
