The Turbine Art Fair (TAF) in collaboration with renowned creatives including Tiaan Nagel, Tonic Design, and garden designer Patrick Watson is set to mesmerise aesthetes with artwork of emerging artists at Hyde Park Corner from 27 July to 30 July 2023.
This year’s celebration, which is aimed championing emerging artists and galleries while showcasing established artists and providing an innovative and dynamic experience for visitors, is expected to be bigger and better than before with visitors promised extraordinary exhibitions, thought-provoking talks, and captivating installations.
The fair found its new home at Hyde Park Corner where it is joining art spaces like Graham’s Contemporary, Charles Grieg Gallery, and several others, continuing the Corner’s legacy of supporting the arts in Johannesburg.
Glynis Hyslop, the founder of Turbine Art Fair, says they are thrilled to be moving into a fabulous new venue and promises visitors an unforgettable experience at a venue where art comes alive. “We believe we have curated an innovative and exciting art experience that will take art fairs in South Africa to the next level,” says Hyslop.
