Kaya FM — Official Media Partner of the 2019 RMB Turbine Art Fair
Kaya FM 95.9 is proud to be back as the official media partner of the RMB Turbine Art Fair (TAF) this year. Now in its seventh edition, TAF continues to be an important space for creating a meaningful dialogue between artists and collectors while providing the ultimate platform for the presentation of emergent and cutting-edge talent. The fair, which is an all-encompassing lifestyle event, is a rich curation of performance art, music, screenings, master classes, and more.
Having grown its numbers substantially, TAF maintains a pre-eminent position in South Africa’s modern and contemporary art fair market and is recognised as one of the primary destinations for the acquisition of the most significant artworks. With its unique model, TAF attendees are able to acquire valuable pieces of art from as little as R1 000 — art is consistently proving to be a valuable asset with potentially significant investment returns — providing solid advantages for both artists and collectors.
Station MD Greg Maloka says: “Kaya FM is a firm believer in supporting the arts and our involvement in the Turbine Art Fair is just one of the ways in which we encourage people to collect, grow and invest in the arts and culture sector. The best expression any country or people can ever express is through art.”
The Turbine Art Fair runs from 12 to14 July with a preview evening on 11 July. Previously located in the historic Turbine Art Hall, the fair has found a new home at 10 Fricker Road in Illovo. The walkabout series sponsored by RMB will see prominent tastemakers sharing their selection of available artworks. Maloka will be hosting a special walkabout on 12 July where he will take visitors through his selection of artistic gems by promising young artists. Commenting on what he is most looking forward to at this year’s fair Maloka says: “I am excited to see the programme put together by Gerard Sekoto, one of my favourite masters.”
