Talks are free and don’t require reservations. The programme includes talks with collectors and museum curators, and featured artist Billie Zangewa. It wraps up with a film premiere of Art in the Twenty-First Century: Johannesburg, one of three new films that comprise Season 9 of Art in the Twenty-First Century, the longest running television series on contemporary art and artists in the US.
3. BILLIE ZANGEWA IS THE FEATURED ARTIST
Malawian-born, Joburg-based Billie Zangewa will present a new installation as part of the series of non-commercial projects that the fair puts on each year. Her instantly recognisable collages, hand-stitched from raw silk, are a revelation, not just for their beauty, but for the way they capture how the quieter, confessional side of feminism can be genuinely empowering.
