The Turbine Art Fair (TAF) has announced new dates for its 2021 iteration, the TAF ARCADE. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been decided to reschedule TAF 21 to 30 September – 3 October 2021.
‘The last year and a half has been one we will never forget! We have all be so isolated from each other and the amazing experiences normally on offer throughout the year. We believe art needs to be viewed and enjoyed in person. As a result, we have decided to move TAF to October in the hope that the third wave passes and South Africans of all ages groups have been able to get vaccinated. TAF is not just an art fair, but a lifestyle experience and we hope that by moving the dates we will be able to bring a much-needed cultural experience to Jozi.’
Glynis Hyslop, Founder of Turbine Art Fair
The 9th edition of Turbine Art Fair – TAF ARCADE, a new hybrid fair of online viewing rooms and exhibition spaces, will take place at 10 Fricker Road, Illovo.
TAF also has a new partnership with Artsy, the world’s largest online art marketplace. ‘We believe that this partnership is a perfect fit with our vision to showcase artists and grow the market for African art as well as elevate art collecting across a wider market,’ adds Hyslop.
