In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we’re joined by Ross Douglas, director of Joburg Art Fair, the annual contemporary art fair in Johannesburg, South Africa. First, Ross dissects the South African art market, explaining how the local market has developed in conjunction with the global growth of the contemporary art market. Then, he compares and contrasts the infrastructure of the South African art market with the US and European art market, noting some of the key differences between them. Also, Ross previews this year’s Joburg Art Fair, occurring next month in September, telling us about galleries and artworks visitors can expect to see at the fair.a
