FNB 7th Joburg Art Fair

Barnard Gallery (Booth 15), Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg
August 22 – August 24, 2014

As the first international art fair on the continent, The FNB Joburg Art Fair plays a pivotal role in supporting the burgeoning contemporary arts landscape in Africa. The Fair provides a space for leading artists, galleries, collectors, writers, thinkers and art lovers to congregate. The 2014 event will see a strong focus on Nigeria; the FNB Art Prize; a dynamic Special Projects schedule as well as the exhibits of 37 galleries hailing from 8 different countries.

At this years event Barnard Gallery will present Alastair Whitton’s Library, a large-scale work consisting of fifteen A2 scale archival prints on museum glass. Individually housed, each image of this large composite work references notions of the archive, both private and public and explores various aspects of history, literature, faith and childhood.
