2016 ESE PR JAN Imagen compuesta
ESA FERIA DE ARTE es un evento de feria de arte inspirado y curado iniciado por ARTE ÁFRICA magazine with a specific focus on emerging and unrepresented contemporary artists from Africa and the diaspora.

Ahora en su segundo año, ESA FERIA DE ARTE continues to address the specific needs of artists living and working on the African continent and further afield by providing a curated platform where they can showcase their work in a relaxed but professional environment. ESA FERIA DE ARTE specifically encourages an open, inviting and friendly environment where a new generation of art audience (and ultimately collectors) can meet with the artists directly and be introduced to their work.

While artists without representation from a gallery or an established career wouldn’t normally be able to benefit from this professional stage, we have adapted the traditional model of the ‘art fair’ to offer unrepresented and emerging artists the same opportunity as their more well-known peers; providing them with the necessary resources to help them achieve recognition and success.

Taking place in a much larger space at The Palms Center en Woodstock, Ciudad del Cabo, QUE FERIA DE ARTE 2016 has received over 165 applications from artists and galleries from 21 countries, including Ghana; Mali; Senegal; Brazil; Ethiopia; Egypt; Cote d’Ivoire; Kenya; South Africa; Namibia; Angola; Mauritius and as far afield as Canada, Germany and Dubai!

Artistas destacados:

Emo de Medeiros Hypermedia (Benin/France)

de Medeiros works between Cotonou (Benin) and Paris (France). He will present work from his recent Paris exhibition entitled ‘All Things Magic’ and his video piece Kaleta / Kaleta will be a feature at the VIP preview evening and on THAT FILM FOCUS’ programme.

“Art is our first and last link with sacredness, and my work is built upon a single concept: contexture. It consists in holistic interconnectivity, remixing conceptual art, sculpture, video, traditional crafts, photography, electronic music, reverse painting, performance, along with interactive objects and media to create intense participative experiences,” says de Medeiros.

Laura Windvogel Painting/Drawing (South Africa)

Cape Town based artist Laura Windvogel, AKA Lady Skollie, produces mildly-offensive watercolours and collaborative, contribution-based projects that explore gender roles, sex, sexuality, relationship dynamics and the tug of war between masculine and feminine energy.
