Joburg Fringe

Johannesburg, 264 Fox Street

The Joburg Fringe is an independent art fair and organisation first launched in 2008, complementing the FNB Joburg Art Fair. It’s an artist-run initiative with a petit but potent history that celebrates the inner city.

In 2010 the Joburg Fringe assembled a surreptitious show of VIDEOart! by local and foreign artists. The show subsequently travelled to Leipzig, Munich and Berlin. In 2009 the Joburg Fringe staged a pre-exhibition courtesy of Right on the Rim Project Saloon and Jonathan Liebmann in the raw building site of Arts on Main. In 2008 the Joburg Fringe collaborated with the Dead Revolutionaries Club and the Afrika Cultural Centre on the show Esikhaleni – Spatial Practices. It included a curated show and four galleries from the vanguard of the South African art scene.
