Returning to the seventh edition of Investec Cape Town Art Fair, which takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from 15 to 17 February 2019, TOMORROWS/TODAY is a cross-section of the most exciting, emerging and less known artists from Africa and around the world chosen by Investec Cape Town Art Fair curator Tumelo Mosaka as being thought-provoking voices.
According to Mosaka the aim of TOMORROWS/TODAY is to shine a light on emerging and under-represented artists, set to be tomorrow’s leading names. It is open to those working on and beyond the African continent and as the title implies, the ongoing theme is one of transformation, and experimentation showcasing unorthodox art forms addressing current social and political issues.
“The art scene is not short of rising stars,” says Mosaka. “The point is how to provide visibility.”
“For Investec Cape Town Art Fair visitors – especially those who intend to invest in the future – it is important that the art fair sets the bar while ushering in a new crop of artists. For this reason, the fair has established this major platform.”
“In essence, the thought-provoking TOMORROWS/TODAY section reiterates the Fair’s support of artists who have developed their talents outside the structures of the art market,” says Mosaka.
