Winter Sculpture Fair
12 May @ 08:00 - 13 May @ 17:00 SASTR240
Held in the magnificent grounds of the Nirox Sculpture Park in the Cradle of Humankind, this sculpture fair is one of the most popular art events of the year. In addition to the magnificently presented array of new sculptures by leading South African and international artists, the food and wine on offer is also a big attraction with vineyards and restaurants from South Africa’s culinary capital Franschhoek, in the Western Cape hosting stalls at the fair.
The 2018 Winter Sculpture Fair looks to be an especially exciting edition with some major international artists taking part including multimedia artist Yoko Ono who is collaborating on works with Nandipha Mntambo and acclaimed Ndebele artist Esther Mahlangu. Other major artists taking part in the sculpture fair this year include Mary Sibande, Nelisiwe Xaba, Jane Alexander and Lungiswa Gqunta.
Pack your camping chairs and blankets and arrive early to find a space on the lawns overlooking the lake or under the shade of the autumnal trees.
Advanced booking is recommended as this event often sells out.
