JOHANNESBURG - ABSA GALLERY
A letter to my 22-year-old self
 
“In 2011, I had days where I would sleep without food and had to go to school with a grumbling stomach (if I had money for the taxi fare). My concentration levels were impaired, I couldn’t tell anyone, because I was afraid to ask for help. Also, I felt ashamed of my situation. I failed my first year due to my poor decision-making that was driven by hunger and a lack of help.”
 
– Banele Khoza
 
A letter to my 22-year-old self is a response of help to young creatives who find themselves alone in their hour of need. Khoza has asked a number of artists and friends in his network to donate artworks, accompanied by a letter to their 22-year-old selves and other influential practitioners. The proceeds raised by the artworks in this show will be used in aid of a foundation that Khoza wants to build in support of art education and basic needs for young creatives.

JOHANNESBURG - STEVENSON JOHANNESBURG
Isango
 
Hlobo’s previous gallery exhibition, 'Sewing Saw', reflected on the necessity of destruction in creation as the artist underwent a form of self-inventory, remarking, ‘this work is to deconstruct whatever it is I have constructed so that I get to understand the layers that I might have missed in the process of building that edifice’. 'Isango', translating as portal, passageway or gate, pictorialises a new gestative moment in Hlobo’s practice, with the artist pointing to the words of Major Tom, David Bowie’s fictional narrator in Space Oddity: ‘I'm stepping through the door/And I'm floating in a most peculiar way …’
 
Copper, lauded as an element with highly conductive properties, is integrated into Hlobo’s lexicon as a material key to exploring the passage between states of being. Sculptures constructed from this metal feature heavily as Hlobo delves deeper into terrain first explored in 'Umthamo' at the Maitland Institute in Cape Town and elaborated in 'Unyukelo', his forthcoming exhibition at the SCAD Museum in Savannah, Georgia. He now posits, ‘Perhaps we’ve ascended to this doorway. Perhaps now I’m about to move, I’m about to alight. We’re stepping through a door.’

SEE ART Contemporary Drawing
Participating:
Although drawing has been at the core of all artistic processes since the dawn of art-making, it has only comparatively recently attained full status as an art practice in its own right. This exhibition acknowledges the central role of drawing in artmaking with a focus on South Africa.

Giorgio Vasari, a famous Renaissance artist and painter, was eloquent on the importance of drawing in the field of fine art. Vasari states, “Drawing… is the necessary beginning of everything [in art], and not having it, one has nothing.” 

The practice of drawing has changed over the last four decades. Since the 1970s mainly technology changes have reshaped our political and social worlds, such as the rapid rise of digital technology, instant global connectedness, enhanced mobility, the internet, social media. Artmaking has adapted to these new paradigms. The styles, materials, and forms of artmaking have expanded, and drawing has further entrenched its status as a recognised self-sufficient art form – drawing has broadened our assumptions about art.

To quote Anita Taylor, director of the Jerwood Drawing Prize and dean of Bath School of Art and Design, “The need to understand the world through visual means would seem more acute than ever; images transcend the barriers of language, and enhance communications in an increasingly globalised world.”

Drawing now enjoys a visibility so evident it seems almost organic, essential; a practice that can identify with, and fulfill the expressive needs of today's artists.

The exhibition, SEE ART: Contemporary Drawing, will be displayed in a salon-style. The salon-style of displaying artworks originated in the 1700s when artists were given an opportunity to hang their work in a public venue. The works are displayed close together, floor to ceiling and in a non-linear/default.htm > Abe Mathabe, Alex Hamilton, Audrey Anderson, Bevan de Wet, Carl Jeppe, Christiaan Diedericks, Collin Cole, David Paton, Diane Victor, Dina Kroon, Eric Duplan, Gordon Froud, Helena Hugo, Hermann Niebuhr, Ivy Grobler, Izanne Wiid, Kyra Pape, Leanne Olivier, Lehlogonolo Mashaba, Linda Hess, Linda Rademan, Lothar Bottcher, Mandy Coppes-Martin, Marcus Neustetter, Maria Lebedeva, Marianna Keyser, Nhlanhla Nhlapo, Nico Ras, Nicolas Durocher-Yvon, Paul Mantzios, Pauline Gutter, Ramarutha Makoba, Rosemary Joynt, Sizwe Khoza, Verna du Toit, Wayne Matthews, Wessel van Huyssteen. *
