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.”
The forum company is South Africa’s leading events and conferencing company. With four iconic venues, we continue to deliver extraordinary experiences.
“The purpose of Turbine Art Fair is to develop young artists and grow the market for African art. RMB shares our vision and this partnership will help to elevate art collecting across a wider market, strengthening the greater creative economy,” says Glynis Hyslop, founder of Turbine Art Fair and MD of The Forum Company.
