The aim this year has been to present a comprehensive and diverse overview of the current state of South African art. Artists include the much-acclaimed William Kentridge, Willie Bester, Sam Nhlengethwa, Simon Stone, Richard Smith, Robert Slingsby, Stephen Inggs, Deborah Bell, Diane Victor, Claudette Schreuders, Wendy Anziska, Pamela Stretton, Penelope Stutterheim, Jeannette Unite and Gerard Tabata.
Amongst the leading ceramic artists exhibiting are Louise Gelderblom, Hennie Meyer, Clementina van der Walt, Carolyn Heydenrych, Laura du Toit, Wiebke von Bismark, Ralph Johnson, Kendall Warren and Melanie Hillebrand; while sculpture is well represented with works by Willie Bester, Kevin Brand, Jaco Sieberhagen and Lucky Sibiya.
