The exhibition is a contemporary review and will showcase a wide range of techniques and forms of artistic expression.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for you to get your hands on the artwork you want!

Interactive Art Talks delivered by art professionals, artists, collectors and gallery owners are set to take place throughout the 3 days, allowing you the opportunity to listen, learn, think and interact.
We encourage you to come out and further these 2 hour conversations on all things art.

This competition was designed for artists, practitioners and enthusiasts who are impassioned by the intersection of digital technology and creative art; visionaries who might uniquely meld the two into inspiring art forms.
Submissions had to qualify for one of the four categories namely: Audio-Visual, Interactive Art, Interactive Hardware Installation and Digital Photography.
Winners in each category will be awarded with cash prizes and have their works exhibited at this year’s art fair as well as online.
