Art Exhibitions

Two Solo Exhibitions

Opening: 31 October 2019 at 17:30 - 23 November 2019

Bulumko Mbete | A Thousand Things
 
'A Thousand Things' is Bulumko Mbete’s first solo exhibition at 99 Loop Gallery. Featuring domestic and utilitarian materials such as wool, plastic, cotton, blankets and beads, Mbete’s artworks experiment with alternating and challenging our experience of their materiality. Through the exploration of familiar, and familial, materials she finds a language to speak to the weaved connectivity of relationships and experiences. Ultimately, Mbete uses her textile artworks to unravel the ways her chosen materials intersect culturally.
 
Wim Legrand | Vanities
 
‘Vanities’ is Wim Legrand’s fifth solo exhibition at 99 Loop Gallery. The exhibition is a continued exploration of the artist’s idiosyncratic visual language of unicorns, cheeses and hotdogs – randomly commonplace, seemingly innocuous objects staged in fabulistic landscape scenes. Playing with visual motifs and an array of references, ‘Vanities’ draws parallels between historic painting traditions and the iconography and practices of our current social media age. Ultimately, Legrand's exhibition explores how images accrue, change, and sometimes lose, meaning.
