SAFFCA in association with AFSACSA participated at the 2018 FNB Joburg Art Fair. As the first international art fair on the continent, SAFFCA was honored to have participated at this fair.
Focused on contemporary art from the continent and diaspora SAFFCA presented artists who participated in their residency program, part of the collection artist all who embodied our three aims:
Give Art exposure through love and passion.
Support, nurture and promote the Visual Art and Artists of the Southern part of the African Continent.
Participate in linking Local to Global.
The fair for SAFFCA was a tremendous success and we would like to thank all who came to support us in our booth and took the time to get to know the foundation. We would like to especially thank the FNB Art Fair team specifically Mandla Sibeko who curated alongside fantastic fair. The VIP program which SAFFCA participated in was a fantastic success, Nicola Bird alongside Benon Lutaaya shared their unique stories that embodied what love and passion are able to achieve.
The Project Space established 2016 by artist Benon Lutaaya, and born out of the 2010 National Research statistical data by the South African Department of Arts and Culture on visual arts, part of which indicated that only 12% of women make a living from creating art. THE PROJECT SPACE was founded on the basis of empowering more young female artists to engage in full-time practice as visual artists.
Asemahle Ntlonti’s work along with the performance was simply breathtaking.
