Visitors to the fair will be able to take part in a curated selection of educative talks and walkabouts with artists and curators. They will take place at the fair and within the virtual realm and are free daily to visitors. A featured large-scale artwork by the renowned artist Pat Mautloa, recognised as a pioneer of SA modernism, will be broken up into smaller pieces to allow young collectors to experience art ownership. This will highlight the goal of the fair to make art accessible, democratise art investment and rethink conventionality.
“We are delighted to welcome back many of our long-standing galleries who have supported us throughout the years, as well as a host of new and exciting ones into the mix this year. With the help of our esteemed selection panel, we believe that we have a really exciting line-up for visitors to TAF 22 with 34 exhibitors and five special projects featuring work across all artistic mediums such a prints and multiples, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, textiles and so much more. There is really something for everyone,” Hyslop said.
