South Africa’s first accessible art fair is heading underground to Oxford Parks from 21 – 24 July 2022 for its 10th edition. Turbine Art Fair (TAF) brings together galleries, artists and curators from around the country to present and sell contemporary art.
The 2022 fair and its location will play with themes of conventionality while exploring how far or ‘deep’ one can go to exhibit art. This playful, edgy, and modern take on a fair will surely excite lovers of art as we curate an undoubtedly unique experience that will make a mark on Joburg’s social and cultural calendars.
“We are delighted to announce Oxford Parks as our venue for our 10th edition of TAF. It’s definitely a hotspot in Jozi right now and a stones throw from the art hub of Rosebank. TAF will continue to push boundaries in 2022 but also continue to make the fair appeal to both the seasoned art collector and those wanting to start the art collecting journey. There is something for everyone.
Glynis Hyslop | Founder Turbine Art Fair
