DON’T MISS THIS: Cape Town Art Fair

The Cape Town Art Fair aims to bring together the very best South African contemporary art under one roof.

Building on its début, the Cape Town Art Fair 2014 is oversubscribed and welcomes a number of newcomers to the existing gallery participants including Stevenson, Goodman and Everard Read, who are enthusiastic about how the Cape Town Art Fair is promoting the city as a global art capital.

The art fair is being produced by Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa, part of the global Fiera Milano Group responsible for staging art fairs in Milan and Istanbul.

Among the many attractions, the 2014 Cape Town Art Fair will present a special project by invited artist Josh Ginsberg and guest curator Ernestine White will show a body of work by invited artist Lyndie Sales.

Other highlights include the screening of new works at the Imax cinema by some of South Africa's most innovative multimedia artists.

Art South Africa will host panel discussions and debates with key figures in the South African art world, creating a forum for debate within the visual arts sector. The Sovereign Art Foundation, a charity dedicated to using art for children's rehabilitation, education and therapy, will provide an innovative and interactive "art zone" for children who have a passion for art.

This is a first for Cape Town and heralds from the very successful Hong Kong Art Fair. The art zone is a celebration of well-known artists enjoying child's play and provides a perfect space for children to have an unforgettable interactive art experience while their parents enjoy the finest art showcase in South Africa.

In the spirit of acknowledging Cape Town's World Design Capital status, the Cape Town Art Fair is offering a joint entry ticket, which includes entry into the Art Fair as well as entry into Africa's first design fair, Guild, which takes place in the neighbouring Lookout at the V&A Waterfront over the same time. This joint ticket costs just R120 and is available through Computicket or at the door.
