On February 27, 2015, ARTsouthAFRICA launched THAT ART FAIR, a curated and affordable art fair with the sole objective to provide a platform for emerging and established African artists who work under the radar and differ from their counterparts. The fair ran till March 1 alongside the Cape Town Art Fair, GUILD Design Fair, and the Design Indaba Expo.

THAT ART FAIR aims at building new young audiences and collectors in Africa while making art entertaining and accessible. It is also committed to fostering a spirit of creativity, sustainability and positive change in the contemporary African art world.

The fair is organized and promoted by Brendon Bell-Roberts and his wife, Suzette. They co-founded the cutting edge Bell-Roberts Gallery in 1999 and launched ARTsouthAFRICA magazine 3 years later.
