For its next sojourn, the national travelling exhibition of the PPC Imaginarium Awards will visit the Rand Merchant Bank Turbine Art Fair (TAF) in Johannesburg. A selection of 2018 finalists’ work will be shown at the sixth edition of the RMB Turbine Art Fair, which takes place at the Turbine Hall from 12-15 July 2018.
The RMB Turbine Art Fair has firmly established itself as the 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.
“The purpose of the Turbine Art Fair is to develop young artists and grow the market for African art,” says Glynis Hyslop, founder of Turbine Art Fair and MD of The Forum Company. “RMB shares our vision and this partnership will help to elevate art collecting across a wider market, strengthening the greater creative economy.”
With its emphasis on supporting local artists, the Fair gives finalists of the 2018 PPC Imaginarium Awards the chance to exhibit in a highly visible and appropriate environment. Much like the BASA Award-winning competition, RMB is committed to transforming lives through the arts and the growth of creativity.
“I believe our creatives have an important contribution to make towards growing our economy and providing solutions to create a better life for all”, says PPC Imaginarium Director Daniel van der Merwe.
An encompassing cultural experience, the RMB Turbine Art Fair promises a distinct blend of music and art installations, as well as talks, walkabouts, artisanal food and beverages, special exhibitions and more!
