Celebrating it’s tenth anniversary edition, the art fair will once again welcome thousands of visitors and participants, providing a platform for collectors, galleries, curators, artists, and art journalists from around the globe to engage, connect and enjoy. This year’s art fair explores the notion of time – a theme which is wide-ranging and encompasses ideas related to the past, present and future, including the ever-important concept of change that comes with the passing of time.
We are pleased to announce that for the first time, we will be a co-sponsor of this year’s Cape Town Art Fair. Gail Bosch of iTOO Artinsure said, “We are delighted to be participating in this year’s fair through our support of the VIP lounge”.
Over and above the main section which features an overwhelming selection of work from the continent as well as the international art world, a series of specially curated shows will also be on view.
Tomorrows/Today: In and Out of Time, co-curated by Natasha Becker (USA) and Mariella Franzoni (Spain), aims to highlight artists who might be tomorrow’s leading names, acting as a forecast of future relevant practices and ideas. Time’s Labyrinth seeks to explore the artistic practices of artists working locally and abroad through solo presentations. Curated by Sean O’Toole, it will showcase new works in photography and drawing as well as mixed media works that probe the relationship between these distinct media. Past/Modern, curated by Joao Ferreira (Portugal), adds historical context to Modern masters from the period 1940 to 2000 to encourage discourse on the influence of historical works on contemporary statements. Alt is dedicated to alternative formats and exhibitions that reflect how technological change continuously impacts the art world. Connect presents the work of cultural institutions that nurture and support artistic production through exhibitions and artist residencies – participating institutions feature A4 Arts Foundation, Iziko SA National Gallery, Norval Foundation and Zeitz MOCAA.
