The third edition of Cape Town Art Fair will feature work presented by prominent Italian, Pan African, South African and a variety of other top international galleries. Apart from the sensational works on display, visitors may also look forward to a series of talks held by the likes of renowned curator and Director of Performa, RoseLee Goldberg, and artist, critic and writer, Sue Williams.
Matthew Blackman, the current Director of the Association for Visual Arts and editor of ArtThrob, is curating the Cape Town Art Fair talks programme. Some of the topics include: ComicArtAfrica: comics and the rise of comic art in South Africa and Africa; photography and film; and networking, transformation and opportunities for young people in Africa brought to you by Art South Africa.
The V&A Waterfront will be transformed by art installations in public spaces presented to visitors by Cape Town Art fair. This is to be curated by Vulindlela Nyoni, a lecturer in Fine Art at Stellenbosch University.
The Cape Town Art Fair takes place in the Avenue (situated between the One & Only Hotel and The Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town) from Thursday 26 February until Sunday 01 March 2015. A new art route – called the Art Avenue – extends from the Avenue, through the North Wharf, where galleries will be exhibiting, right up to the Chavonnes Battery Museum which is situated in the Waterfront’s Clock Tower precinct.
Beyond the Art Avenue itself, The Cape Town Art Fair is also connecting its visitors with participating galleries in Woodstock and the CBD. Don’t forget to join museum night (Thursday 26 February), in collaboration with Iziko Museum of South Africa, after the fair closes. There will be notable exhibitions in and around the Company’s Garden, where visitors may experience work by the likes of: William Kentridge’s “The Refusal of Time”, Penny Siopis’s “Retrospective”, Sue Williamson’s installation “Rembrandt in South Africa”, and the 50th edition of the World Wildlife Photographer. Visitors may make use of the available shuttle busses for transportation.
