Freedom is Coming Tomorrow (Or the Day After)

26 March 2020 - 22 April 2020

 F&M in association with Keyes Art Mile invites you to join us for the opening of `Freedom is Coming Tomorrow (Or The Day After)’ an exhibition of new paintings, video art, performance and installation works from celebrated artists Carla Fonseca & Nthato Mokgata (Standard Bank Young Artist Award Winner 2020). This event is sponsored by Backsberg Wine.
 
Join us on Thursday 26 March 2020 at 18h00 for the much anticipated opening of the exhibition and an evening of stimulating culture and exchange celebrating art, africa and new voices.
 
F&M founders Carla Fonseca and Nthato Mokgata take up the clarion call of their generation and its urgency in their work which strongly articulates their generation's demand to redress past injustice. The artists reflect a generation of activists beset by untruths as they navigate avalanches of fake news, environmental doomsday-ism, fabrication and the threat of having their identities sublimated by digital/social media. In an age so irrevocably defined by un-reality and untruth, F&M decisively create their own with a bold approach to visual art.
 
Artists Carla Fonseca & Nthato Mokgata work together as F&M
 
F&M as a collective are unique in their approach to making art collaboratively using classic art making techniques along with technological tools to create the works. Using a combination of drawing/illustration, graphic art, painting and digital making, the artists cleverly create a visual composite of styles that build a powerful visual narrative and journey.
 
Profiles spanning stage, film, music, performance & digital art
 
Both artists are visible and vocal figures on the african and international cultural landscape and are both recognised and respected for their contributions. Together they represent a new creative voice of mozambique and south africa in dialogue.
