Graham Contemporary - A New Wave

Graham Contemporary - A New Wave
Opening Thursday 28 April 2022 at 18h00 for 18h30 - Exhibition ends 28 June 2022

SOME AFRICAN IDENTITIES IN THE CONTEMPORARY MOMENT - Our second group exhibition at Graham Contemporary presents a body of work by emerging and established artists across several different mediums. What brings the selection of painting, photography, prints and collage together is an impulse on the part of all the participating artists to reconfigure and reconsider the experience of being ‘African’.

EBONY/CURATED Franschoek - 'Short Stories' by Gavin Rooke
Saturday 14 May to Thursday 30 June 2022

 Join us for the opening this Saturday, 14th May 2022 at 11:30am at Franschhoek Square, 32 Huguenot Street, Franschhoek.

The opening coincides with the Franschhoek Literary Festival which takes place from 13-17 May 2022.

"Gavin Rooke’s sculptures in copper might look like simplified geometric forms with simple, everyday phrases stamped onto them, but that’s where the simplicity ends. Both words and matter become complex and unstable in his hands. The reduced forms of the sculptures look at a glance like classic minimalism – precisely the kind of object that rebuffs meanings and resists labels: its artistic significance lying in its ability to refer to nothing outside of itself and be nothing but itself; objects of pure integrity. Yet, he has stamped them with phrases, as if labelling them and making them represent something.

These works, however, engage with irony and double entendre: the ways in which the meanings of words and phrases double, or multiply, sometimes meaning two things at once, sometimes even opposites." - Graham Wood

The exhibition can be viewed in person and on Artsy.

Modern Masters IV
Wednesday 15 June 2022 to Saturday July 2022

A selection of Modern works created by important South African artists prior to 2000.

Our fourth Modern Masters exhibition, curated by Marc Stanes, features the following notable artists: Walter Battiss, Alexis Preller, Barbara Grace Burry, Peter Clarke, Ernst De Jongh, George Diederick During, Hannes Harrs, Jane Tully Heath, Dezso Koenig, Alfred Neville Lewis, Donald Madge, Leonard Matsoso, Nathaniel Mokgosi, Sam Nhlengethwa and Cecil Skotnes.

Highlights of the exhibition are two works by Walter Battiss namely ‘Nudes No 1' and 'Figure in Pink’. Battiss was born in Somerset East in 1906 and was a founding member of the ‘New Group’. A highly versatile and innovative artist, Battiss is regarded as one of South Africa’s foremost abstract artists and was unique in not having studied in Europe. Constantly re-inventing himself throughout his life, Battiss was the first South African artist to regard San painting as an important art form in its own right. In 1948 he ventured into the Namib Desert to live amongst the Bushmen to further understand this aesthetic. In 1949 Battiss met Pablo Picasso and Gino Severini in Italy and his friendship with Picasso continued, often meeting at the artist’s studio in Paris in the 1950s. Throughput his career he used his art, wit, humour and satire to force the viewer to take note of the damaging government policies of the time. Battiss became the father of conceptual and performance art practice in South Africa as he grew older. Much exhibited and published locally and internationally during his lifetime, Battiss was awarded the Medal of Honour of South African Akademie and was elected an Honorary Member of the Academy of Florence.

Another notable work in Modern Masters IV is ‘Archangel’ by Alexis Preller, which the artist considered his most important painting from his final solo exhibition in 1975 held shortly before he died. This unusually monochromatic work featuring a god-like mythological, disembodied head is reminiscent of the Yoruba Ibeji figures from Nigeria, with which Preller was familiar.

This exhibition will be available to view in person and on Artsy. Please click here to request a catalogue via email.

Barnard Gallery

Tuesday 21 June 2022 to Tuesday 26 July 2022

Barnard is please to present PAINTER PAINTER! an exhibition of work by selected artists engaging with the medium and material of paint. Diverse in their approach and process, each of these painters nonetheless shares a common commitment to, and celebration of, the medium with its many histories.

Characterized by both repetition and reactivation of a language with numerous dialects, this exhibition explores emergent developments in painting and the ever-shifting role of the painter in contemporary art and culture, which remains as fluid, and arguably relevant, as the medium itself.

PAINTER PAINTER! includes work by Jo Hummel, Alexia Vogel, Katherine Spindler, Jennifer Morrison, Paul Senyol, Emma Aspeling, Tom Cullberg, Swain Hoogervorst, Jeanne Hoffman, Claire Johnsson, Jo O’Connor, Gabrielle Raaff, Emma Nourse, Cathy Layzell, Jill Trappler and Oda Tungodden.

GIfA Leonardo Building Tour

The Gauteng Institute for Architecture
The Leonardo Building Tour
Saturday 02 July and Saturday 09 July 2022

GIfA is inviting you to join the Leonardo Building Tour

The Leonardo - The tallest building in Africa, was originally briefed as 4 basements, 5 floors of retail and conferencing with offices and apartments to total anticipated height of 33 storeys. Adaptive flexibility was required to respond to the changing market demands and financial viability throughout construction. The architects adopted processes and designs that were extremely flexible, which permitted the uses to be determined by market demands and whilst the tower was under construction. This required significant flexibility and robustness in the design. Ultimately a complex 57 story building project has been completed in a manner which has far exceeded the originally anticipated commercial expectations. Collaboration with the engineers ensured sufficient capacity and integration to allow construction to proceed at lower levels and floors to be added without impacting the construction programme. The largely column free space, orientation and layout of the plans also provided flexibility...

Decorex Africa 

Wondering what’s next for design in Africa?
Johannesburg - Thursday 28 July 2022 to Sunday 31 July 2022

If you’re following us on social media, you’ll know that last week we relaunched Decorex Africa and 100% Design Africa at events in Cape Town and Joburg.

We started at the acclaimed Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, and then moved to Aurum in Joburg, where we continued the festivities, with inspiring local and international speakers, as well as a great deal of reconnecting and networking within the design industry. In case you missed it, this is what you need to know:

At the core of our evolution is a deep and fervent belief in the power of our industry and its potential for growth. As the world changes, we're being asked to change too.
  • There is a renewed focus and commitment to CURATION as a tool for industry elevation. This will be supported by an investment in re-earning our position as a design authority. By doing this, we'll be better placed to lead and shape change in the industry; from celebrating icons, to introducing and better platforming the next generation of talent, and launching new products.
  • To support our live events, we'll be hosting a calendar of side-events. This will include the launch of Summits in both CT and JHB where we'll be hosting international and local speakers to inspire the future.
  • You can also expect amplified business and trade networking opportunities.
    Now more than ever, the world, and Africa needs creative, new solutions. If you haven't yet made the call to be a part of Decorex Africa and 100% Design Africa this year, we’d like to suggest to you that the time is now.
It’s time to reimagine.
