Joburg Fringe Art Fair: 21 Sept-25Sept

We at borderline love art, and giving up and coming artist the platform to be heard and showcasing what they have been doing.

Fortunately, for us the Joburg Fringe Art Fair will be in town from the 21st – 25th of September.

The Joburg Fringe offers the opportunity for some great artistic extra curricular activities to be viewed. The fringe is for the artists – those not yet discovered by commercial galleries, the up-and-coming artists on fame’s threshold– who relish the possibilities for exposure. Established and well-known contributors often join fringe events giving themselves an edgy platform to be shown on and new talent to show with.

This the 4th year the Fringe Art Fair has been around. Starting off at places like Blank Projects, Spaza Art Gallery, Outlet Gallery, Worldart, Gugulective and The Bag Factory. With artists like Johan Thom, Sharlene Khan, Claudia Shneider, Senzo Nhlapo, Bev Price and Jonathan Garnham; performing solos it epitomised fringeness. From there in 2009, the fair was at the unfinished arts on main building in downtown Joburg. In 2010, the fair was all over Joburg at The Bioscope , The Bag Factory, The Sports Bar at the Troyeville Hotel and at Anglo Gold Ashanti Headquarters. This year the fair will be in Braamfontein and i think South Point deserve a S/O for making the event possible. The fair will be behind the South Point Headquarters on Melle Street.

OK here in Joburg we know the Sunday market by Maboneng precinct.. In Cape Town they have what they call the Neighbourgoods  Market and its coming to Joburg this winter..The Neighbourhoods market independent initiative founded in 2006 by entrepreneurs Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro, whose aim is to revive and reinvent the Public Market as a civic institution. So they chose a dope location in the Jhb Braamfontein precinct. 

So Braamfontein should be buzzing soon every Saturday, but one question what about the Sunday market by Main? Will see when it all happens i guess!!!!!
