THAT ART FAIR is calling for artists' applications from across Africa and the Diaspora

That Art Fair is calling for artists' applications from across Africa and the Diaspora for the 2016 edition of its art fair. Applications and submissions will close on November 6, 2015.
The event will take off on February 18 to March 20, 2016, at the Palms Centre in Woodstock, Cape Town. 

According to the organisers, they will partner with international institutions from Zimbabwe, Uganda, Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria and many more to join.

That Art Fair is an inspired, curated art fair event initiated by Art Africa magazine, with a specific focus on contemporary artists from Africa and the Diaspora. The art fair according to them will address the needs of artists living and working on the continent – and further afield – by providing a platform where they can showcase their work in a relaxed but professional environment and be seen by curators, collectors, galleries and new audiences.

“We have adapted the traditional model of the ‘art fair’ to offer unrepresented and emerging artists an opportunity to benefit from this professional stage, by providing them with the necessary resources to help them achieve recognition and success. That Art Fair specifically encourages an open, inviting and friendly environment where a new generation of art audience (and ultimately collectors) can meet with the artists directly and be introduced to their work.

That Art Fair, artists are encouraged to engage with their audiences, network with artists from across the continent, gain exposure to new markets and sell up a storm!  The organisers are committed to fostering a spirit of creativity, sustainability and positive change in the contemporary African art world,” they said. 

The fair will encompass a wide range of disciplines and feature events such as Visual ArtPerformance Art, Future Masters’ exhibition, Comic art , Photography,  Film and Video, Fashion and Culture, Urban Art, art Super mart, Workshops and talks programmeThat Art Fair is for unrepresented artists and artists’ collectives, as well as galleries and institutions that wish to submit their artists for consideration and participation.

"A selection committee, comprising some of the most respected figures in the art world, will ensure that work selected fits the exhibition criteria and curatorial approach. Over the four-week period, exhibitors will rotate so there will literally be fresh art on."
