Turbine Art Fair celebrates 5 years of contemporary South African art.

An article published on designnews.co.za, explains the shedule for the 2017 Turbine Art Fair.

The fifth edition of the Turbine Art Fair (TAF), brought to you by the forum company, will take place at the iconic Turbine Hall, Johannesburg from the 14th to 16th July 2017 with a First Access experience on the evening of 13th July.

TAF has firmly established itself as a must-attend event on the annual South African art calendar by offering visitors an opportunity to view and buy quality artwork from emerging and established talent in a fun and un-daunting way with great live music, artisan food, all curated within the heritage building that is Turbine Hall in the heart of Newtown.

“The Turbine Art Fair has undoubtedly made its mark as an not-to-be-missed event for art lovers and those looking to learn more about South Africa’s rich art scene. With over 50 galleries and exhibits from across South Africa there’s bound to be something to catch everyone’s eye,” says Glynis Hyslop, TAF Fair Director.

All applications have been carefully considered to ensure compliance with the core values of the fair and its organisers. Exhibitors whether galleries, collectives or dealers are invited to exhibit contemporary artwork priced below R50, 000 incl VAT.

TAF17 will see numerous exciting projects and exhibitions take place within the Fair as well as a free talks programme sponsored by Artinsure, guided walkabouts for both adults and children alike as well as a dedicated children’s area and a selection of exciting art installations throughout the Fair.
