6 Must-Reads in our September Issue

Elsa Young

Our September 2016 issue pays tribute to the South African art scene and all its vibrancy and colour through a series of articles that take readers into the spaces of local creatives, collectors and curators. Here are six highlights you can look forward to finding between the covers of our September #HLArt issue.
