Art Joburg closes its doors with great success in 2019 after its relaunch.
The Joburg Art Fair this year has been different. In fact, it is no longer the Joburg Art Fair. Now it is Art Joburg, under new ownership and with a new format. However, it is still sponsored by FNB and its new owner is its former director, Mandla Sibeko.
Art Joburg has been smaller than the Joburg Art Fair in recent years. He has returned "to the basics," says Sibeko, and as the chief operating officer, Vicky Ross, is more focused. "We are concentrating on the quality of the content," she says. With fewer galleries that show a much more selective and carefully selected variety of the best artists.
