A4 FOUNDATION

institution opening

You & I | a group exhibition curated by Ziphozenkosi Dayile and Kemang Wa Lehulere
 

You & I is a group exhibition that looks at how people come together, asking after the conditions and dynamics of the collective. Curators Ziphozenkosi Dayile and Kemang Wa Lehulere pull back from any attempt to survey collective practice, opening instead with a series of lyrical articulations. Across the exhibition, instances of community are placed alongside searching questions of who ‘you’, ‘I’ or ‘we’ may indeed be? The exhibition includes photographs, sculptural installations, films and an instruction piece – and extends for three months with public programme of live performances, screenings and discussions.

You & I is the first exhibition at the new premises of A4 Arts Foundation - opening to the public as an arts centre from 13 September 2017. A4 Arts Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting the arts in Southern Africa. A4 is grounded by an understanding of art as a reciprocal resource, a catalyst for innovation, and a medium of collectivity. Configured within a three-storey warehouse on Buitenkant Street in Cape Town, the A4 Arts centre hosts a gallery and project space, as well as a multimedia library.

STEVENSON

ZANELE MUHOLI | solo show

STEVENSON is proud to present a solo exhibition by visual activist and photographer Zanele Muholi, her first at our Cape Town gallery since 2012. The exhibition presents evolutions in the artist’s ongoing photographic projects, affirming Muholi’s commitment to activism through visual history. It adds interactive and educational elements, as well as an activism wall that shares experiences from the lives of 'Brave Beauties' - transwomen and gender non-binary individuals. This exhibition engages the public with the fact of the alternating brutality and joy faced by the black LGBTQI community in South Africa.

the silences between |  group show

The group show 'the silences between' brings together major works by a selection of pre-eminent contemporary artists who use varying modes of storytelling to rethink, rework and reimagine the world and our place within it. The title is taken from the Maori poetry book, The Silences Between: (Moeraki conversations) in which writer Keri Hulme prompts the question: ‘What is recorded in the writing of history and what is left out?’ Artists on the silences between include: Candice Breitz, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Nolan Oswald Dennis, mounir fatmi, Kendell Geers, David Goldblatt, Haroon Gunn Salie, Alfredo Jaar, Samson Kambalu, William Kentridge, Grada Kilomba, Paulo Nazareth and Mikhael Subotzky

Barnard Gallery

 -Arium by Jaco van Schalkwyk | exhibition

Jaco van Schalkwyk’s ever-evolving exploration of the photorealist technique may be seen to indicate a preoccupation with illusionism – a constant attempt to seamlessly capture reality in paint, to achieve perfection in surface, to master the representation of space and light. But this painterly hyperrealism points to an investigation which functions beyond illusionism, one fascinated with and attuned to the processes of representation itself. In –Arium, van Schalkwyk’s fourth solo exhibition with Barnard Gallery, this consideration of the modes and constructions of representation finds its most complex and multi-faceted expression yet.

SMITH Studio

A Bonnet of Gatsbys | Katharien de Villiers

A Bonnet of Gatsbys loosely documents her varied experience over recent years in and around the unfamiliar territory of peri-urban ghettos on the outskirts of Cape Town. De Villiers inverts the documentary process by questioning her own memories of time and place, representing her fractured thoughts as a mixed media assortment of works that function as dubious approximations of reality.

The Art of Making It | Jonathan van der Walt

Craftsmanship in contemporary sculpture production is the main area of focus in this collection. An exploration into the artistic production processes of selected contemporary artists’ work revealed a tendency of physical non-involvement on the part of the artist, who, in some cases, took up the role of an art director in charge of hundreds of assistants. Van der Walt focuses on Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Maurizio Cattelan and Takashi Murakami.
