LYNDI SALES

18:00 – 20:00 Exhibition Opening


Join us for the opening of Lyndi

Sales’s new solo show at CIRCA.

Lyndi Sales is a Cape Town-based

artist. Previously she has worked

on a series of installations

and artworks that seek to

investigate the circumstances

surrounding the controversial

Helderberg plane crash. Although

she still makes reference to the

event her focus has shifted to

ontological concerns and cosmolog

y. Her constructions made of

intricately cut Perspex, paper and

rubber often shed light on the

fragile nature of our existence and

temporality.

MERELY THIS AND

NOTHING MORE

RINA STUTZER

18:00 – 20:00 Exhibition Opening


Rina Stutzer’s new exhibition

continues her exploration of the

transience of things: of people, of

land and animals, of heaven and

earth. Her work returns

consistently to the dualities of

existence. Her work is deeply

personal but it is also inflected with

the complexities of living in Africa:

a continent characterised by

constant movement and change.

There are light and dark sides to

being in flux and to the feelings of

unease that this may cause;

Stutzer’s work always engages

thoughtfully, attentively and

poetically with their

intertwinement. For her dwelling

means settlement but also point of

departure: a beginning, an end, and

a beginning again.

Curated by Nomusa Makhubu and

Nkule Mabaso Fantastic seeks to

re-ignite critical thought about the

fantastic in contemporary art and

visual culture. Drawing inspiration

from writers such as Ben Okri, this

exhibition brings together video art

and photographs that engage with

the fantastic. The fantastic, in this

exhibition, can be seen as a

kaleidoscope of social experience

in a prism of politics, economy and

governance. The works that are

featured are socially embedded

and interrogate systems of

governance through offering

glimpses of often-overlooked

brutalities in everyday experience.

DREAMERS

SHIREEN NESHAT

09h00 – 21h00

 

Dreamers has been conceived as a

trilogy of video installations that

explore the world of dreams. This

exhibition debuts two new video

installations, “Roja” (2016) and

“Sara” (2016) by well-known

Iranian-born artist and filmmaker,

Shirin Neshat. These are

complemented by the video

“Illusions & Mirrors” (2013) which

were shown at the Montreal

Museum of Fine Art as part of the

first Biennale de Montréal in 2015.

Conceptually each of the three

video installations revolve around

single female protagonists whose

emotional and psychological

narratives remain on the border of

dream and reality; madness and

sanity; and consciousness and sub-

consciousness; as they each face

their own distinct inner anxieties.

ENTANGLED

CLAIRE ZINN

17h00 – 21h00 Exhibition Opening

 

Entangled represents an

experiment of sorts and a

reactivation of printing muscles. In

the beginning it was an endeavour

to reinvent images from Zinn’s

family’s past. This morphed into a

desire to re-imagine the static

images into variable imagery by

layering and carving.

RHYTHM AND MEANING

HENRI MATISSE

08:00 – 21:00 

The much anticipated Henri Matisse|Rhythm and Meaning exhibition opened at

Johannesburg’s Standard Bank Gallery recently.  Art lovers can experience the

genius and versatility of the French modernist master’s first exhibition in Africa

for free.  The exhibition features paintings, drawings, paper cut-outs sculptures

and prints.  Works are drawn from his early Fauvist years, through his interest in

exoticism and orientalism, to the paper cut-outs that he produced during a late-

career creative renaissance. Central to the exhibition is the full suite of 20 prints

in the artist’s 1947 book, Jazz.

 

On First Thursday, 1 September the gallery will be open until 9pm and Standard

Bank offers free shuttles from Braamfontein (Smit Service Road) and Maboneg

WITS YOUNG ARTIST AWARD

18h30 – 21h00

The newly established Wits Young

Artist Award (formerly known as

Martienssen Prize) is born out of a

need for more than “change”. It is

an urgent call for rethinking and

re-imagining what an Art Award

means in a Pan-African University

which acknowledges the idea that

decoloniality is an embodied

experience of the postcolonial

moment. This year not only sees a

change in the name of the award,

but also enables further

interrogation by challenging the

notion of artistic excellence. We

are interested in the search of an

aesthetic language that functions

in a different way and advocates

for the development of ideas that

destabilize exhibitionary practice.

18h00 – 20h00 Exhibition

Opening  

For the first time, the photographs

of anti-apartheid photographers

Benny Gool, Zubeida Vallie and

Adil Bradlow are brought together

in a group exhibition. From the

early 1980s, these young

photographers and friends were

to be found with their cameras

documenting apartheid South

Africa, dodging security police,

taking part in protests and being

detained on several occasions.

Their impressive collections show

us now, some twenty-two years

after the first democratic

elections in South Africa, a vivid

narrative of violence, loss and

injuries, the reverberations of

which are subdued in the rhetoric

of a post-apartheid landscape.

Hannelie Coetzee

Coetzee runs her studio from No

One Eloff Street, Johannesburg.

practice will grow an audience

that appreciates art. Coetzee

questions the purpose of art as

mere commentary on societal ills.

She prefers using art to

participate in life, solve problems,

connect people and start

dialogues. She seeks to create

partnerships, working site

responsively to enhance insight.

MBIRA DZEVADZIMU-TRIBUTE

TO THE ORIGINAL LAMELLAS

Robert Machiri

12h00 – 17h00: Exhibition

Opening

 

This exhibition is an exploration of

mbira examining the history of

remix, appropriation,

transformation and adaptation that

the instrument has undergone,

looking at its centrality as a tool for

exchange and transportation of

knowledge. In the process this

work considers how the digital

object has reshaped ways in which

information is produced,

disseminated and consumed,

leading to sound technology

becoming a key point of departure.

With consideration of what

technologies can provide, the use

of  ‘the remix framework’ as an

approach provides an

interrogatory vantage point of

mbira, viewing it not only as a

cultural product, but also as an

extent of the broader African

futurist imaginative. Herein sound

technology is viewed as a

simulacrum of ancestral voices

that link the three sectional parts

of time–past, present and future.

Screened during the course of the

day

Parts & Labour has curated its

third rendition of Drawings in the

Sky in collaboration with Absa

Bank. The project is an ongoing

show in support of local artists

who are working in and around

Johannesburg where artists are

asked to create unique animations

that are broadcast on the Absa

Lumen in the inner city of

Johannesburg. The video pieces

form a contrast to the usual

subject matter that appears on

such a platform as the four artists

have created works that provoke

curiosity and thought around their

subject matter.

19h00 – 21h00 Street Screening

 

As part of the Territories Project, VANSA screens short films from Mexico, Kyrgyzstan and Palestine on land ownership and land redistribution, followed by a

short discussion. Taking it’s title from the controversial facebook post, "WE WILL GIVE TIP WHEN YOU RETURN THE LAND" by Ntokozo Qwabe, the

should look like, and do, for South Africans. The Territories Project is a collaborations between six organisations from Mexico, Kyrgyztsan, Mali, Colombia,

Cameroon and South Africa as part of Arts Collaboratory.
