The Talks
The Alexander Theatre, Braamfontein
15 March, 14:00 – 18:00

The Talks event aims to create a forum for lively discussions around African contemporary art by significant thinkers and practitioners in the field. The lectures will engage with the major debates, issues and themes of the contemporary African art market within the broader international art scene. Designed to appeal to artists, art lovers, academics, business people and first time buyers alike, The Talks will be grouped into three main strands of discussion: My Collection (with a focus on collecting and curating), the Artist Spot, and Creative Industries (focused on the relationship between commerce and art and how the city interfaces with art). Cocktails and snacks will be served 6.15pm at Narina Trogon Restaurant and Gallery. Tickets are available at R200 each via Computicket from 28 February and at the Joburg Art Fair ticket counter.
