New curator on the block

Silvia Pillon is the recently appointed curator of the FNB Jo’burg Art Fair that opens this weekend. With her colleagues at the art fair office, under the trade name Artlogic, she has pulled together this year’s event, which includes 33 galleries, 11 of which are newcomers.

This year the focus is on photo-graphy, a form in which South Africans have excelled, and continue to, internationally. And the programme is as ambitious as ever. This includes a retrospective of the work of David Goldblatt, a showing of Santu Mofokeng’s famous The Black Photo Album series, and collaborations with the LagosPhoto festival and the Bamako Encounters biennale.
