The fifth edition of the Turbine Art Fair (TAF) will take place at the iconic Turbine Hall in Johannesburg from 14 to 16 July 2017 with a First Access experience on the evening of 13 July.
This year, TAF will see numerous exciting projects and exhibitions take place within the fair, including a substantial installation of work by the 55 finalists of the 2017 PPC Imaginarium Awards. Visitors will be able to view Sculpture category and overall winner, Mziwoxolo Makalima’s sensational art piece, “Doubt-Queuing” and draw inspiration from the many innovative pieces that emerged from this year’s creative talent pool.
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 and 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 a 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.
