Newwork18 Graduation Show

The Wits School of Arts, Division of Visual Arts presents "NEWWORK18", an exhibition of work by young artists in fulfillment of a BA Fine Art degree. This exhibition will be on display at the Wits Art Museum, The Point of Order project space, Art House Studios and the Wits School of Arts building.
 
The NEWWORK project is an annual showcase that is produced by the graduating BAFA class.It is an opportunity for the group to debut themselves as the next generation of young artists.NEWWORK18 features 32 artists that work in a diverse range of media; performance, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture multimedia installation and interactive events. NEWWORK is fresh, critical and experimental.
 
The works presented this year speak to the complexities of South African and global politics,intersectionality, difference and diversity, gender based violence, youth culture, engaging history and identity through trade, industry and folklore, the role of new media and online platforms in story-telling and the role of art to effect social change.
 
As the culmination of a four-year process of learning, exchange and experimentation NEWWORK18 is an important indicator of emerging possibilities within the contemporary (South) African arts industries.
 
The launch of the NEWWORK18 publication will accompany the opening event on 27 November 2018 at 6pm – all four exhibition spaces will be accessible on the opening night. All money raised from the catalogue sales will go towards NEWWORK19, in an ongoing culture of sharing self-raised funds from one year to the next.
