S01 E07 / Interview: “Joburg Art Fair 2018” with Mary Corrigall

--:--
In this 7th episode of Unframed, we speak about the Joburg Art Fair which just took place last weekend, 7-9 September 2018. I’m not going to lie this is the event of the year for me, I really enjoy seeing all the people in the art world, and its a good survey of work that is happening in South Africa, and bits of other African countries, albeit a very specific sector of the market. I think it is important to reflect on this event critically whilst acknowledging its benefits to the industry. I have invited arts writer, curator and consultant, Mary Corrigall to join me in a discussion around this year’s fair, the role of the art fair in the broader arts landscape, and I chat to her about her research report which surveys the contemporary arts in Africa, which can be found here: https://www.corrigall.org/art-reports
Enjoy listening to my conversation with Mary Corrigall.
