If there’s one thing you leave the comfort of your warm bed for over the next few days, make sure it’s The Turbine Art Fair. From 17 to 20 July 2014, Newtown’s iconic Turbine Hall will host this annual event, which promises to be bigger and better than last year’s inaugural affair. Art lovers will have access to locally produced pieces from over 50 of South Africa’s leading galleries, who will once again place emphasis on new work and the promotion of upcoming local artists. While still accessible (all artworks will be priced below R30 000), this year’s event will see a greater importance placed on high quality and innovation. Attendees can also look forward to a young artists’ exhibition, an interactive talks programme hosted by Usha Seejarim and a specially curated Walter Battiss exhibition.
