RMB Turbine Art Fair goes online this weekend

RMB Turbine Art Fair will be taking place online, from 27th August until the 2nd September 2020. RMB TAF is where visionaries meet and showcases established & new talent in the rich cultural & creative landscape of Africa. RMB TAF is a unique South African Art fair that brings together exhibitors from around the SADC region to present, sell and celebrate works. The fair is the epicentre of emerging art in South Africa and presents a space for the showcasing of established and new talent in an environment that is immersive, accessible and inclusive.

Exhibitors will have a dedicated virtual viewing room where they will display their artwork with interactive messaging and behind the scenes content, from video to voice clips and informative text allowing vistors to learn far more about the work of artists or the work they like or want to purchase. RMB TAF offers an incredible selection of very affordable art (and a few collectors items) which range from abstract to hyperrealism, pretty art to art addressing difficult issues; portraits to landscapes, sculptures made from bronze, resin, clay, textile and paper, as well as digital art . There is something for everyone no matter his or her tastes.

“The public has embraced the ethos of RMB TAF and over the years have built a long-standing, trusted relationship with the fair, which provides a safe and curated space in which to buy art. We believe that there is no better time than right now for collectors to actively support artists and galleries” say Fair Founder, Glynis Hyslop.

Vistors to RMBTAF are encourged to view the series of specially curated projects from across South Africa under various banners and themes. These special projects allow guest curators to source unique and exciting work. To view the full special project programme: https://turbineartfair.co.za/projects

A highlight of RMB TAF is the talks and walkabout programme, sponsored by RMB Private Bank. We have created a diverse and engaging programme for visitors to enjoy and experience and is free of charge. Through an online platform Webinar Jam, participants will be able to all of the presenters and can interact with them via the typed chat function. All of the talks and walkabouts will be recorded so they can be watched at any time afterwards. We encourage as many people to join us this year to come and learn, take part in the conversations and support the amazing talent we have in Southern Africa.

“As the proud headline sponsor of RMB TAF we are able to co-create a powerful platform to showcase artistic talent, which is needed now more than ever. The virtual fair will give galleries and artists access to a broader and more diverse audience, while appealing to both existing and new collectors,” says Chief Marketing Officer at RMB, Alison Badenhorst. “RMB TAF creates an authentically African art experience brought to life for the first time in a virtual digital format. Unlocking and supporting diverse young African talent, demonstrates RMB’s vision to positively transform lives through partnering the Creative Economy.”
