Joburg Art Fair

2008 - 2018


The FNB Joburg Art Fair is an international art fair focused on contemporary art from the African continent and the diaspora. It takes place annually on the 5400qm of the Sandton Convention Centre. In addition to commercial galleries, it features curated spaces, a talks and VIP program. In line with the year’s focus exhibition spaces, a lecture hall, book shops and lounges are arranged conceptually around an informal seating area where artists, curators, collectors, sponsors and art lovers congregate. Glowing latern lights suspended from the ceiling contrast with the orthogonal floor layout defined by the exhibition walls. To save materials and costs, the modular wall units and furniture flat pack into storage for re-use the following year.
