Art Exhibitions

OUT OF THE FURNACE

13 March 2019

An international art collaboration in light of the recent UCT art burnings

The combustive creative journey of these two renowned artist and social justice activists represents a deeply immersive and reflective process which has resulted in a powerful body of new and older works that is both triumphant and challenging, topical and celebratory.

The exhibition represents a galvanizing process, a cleansing through fire across generations, and within the cultures both artists embody, while not forgetting the harm inflicted.

For architect and artist Wolf Werdigier there is an important need to confront historic injustices inflicted upon his Jewish ancestors, and equally, acclaimed artist Willie Bester pulls from the fire the need to never forget or allow the dehumanization and silencing of Black South Africans across the spectrum as experienced during apartheid.

Participating: Willie Bester & Wolf Werdigier
