Platform is a section focusing on a single theme or discipline, be it an artistic medium, movement or a geographical or cultural exploration.

The section allows invited galleries to present a combination of well-known, overlooked and emerging artists that align to the theme.


Curated by Candida Stevens, for the 2022 Fair, Platform explored the theme of Music and its part in contemporary visual art.

Music has been inextricably linked to the fashions, expressions and entertainment of mankind since the beginning of time. Music and fine art have borrowed from each other for centuries through a combination of pure inspiration, collaborations and appropriation. Visual art and music are allied in the way their movements are titled and they share terms, like mood, tone, composition. Importantly they share a purpose, to inspire and provoke, both our minds and our mood.

Folk Art is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture. At a time when the world is challenged and changing, curator Candida Stevens will look at our cultural heritage, our communities and our identity, and how artists working in the Folk tradition have chosen to pass on this knowledge and inspiration.

The previous edition of  Platform presented Threading Forms curated by Candida Stevens, bringing to the fore a selection of galleries capturing the breadth of different artists working in textiles and the growing appreciation of the medium as a beautiful and collectible art form.
