Genius Loci

10 July 2021

StateoftheART is delighted to present GENIUS LOCI, a group exhibition in collaboration with SideTrack Studios.
The term ‘genius loci’ originates from Roman mythology and refers to the protective spirit of a place. In contemporary usage, it can refer to a place’s distinctive atmosphere. SideTrack’s ‘genius loci’ is imbued by the community of artists who have chosen to take residence there. Each of the participating artists has interpreted the theme of "genius loci" in their own way, reflecting on physical spaces, the transformation of spaces - or the abstraction and feeling of landscapes occupied by figures and structures.  
This collaborative show with SideTrack Studios presents an exciting opportunity for art lovers to experience and enjoy the work of new (to the gallery) talent alongside our exhibiting artists.

Participating: Adele van Heerden, Aimee Lindeque, Claude Chandler (Curator), Dayna-Gay Tate, Elizabeth Caroline, Joanna Lee Miller, Johan  de Lange, Karen Wykerd, Marli Steyl, Marolize Southwood, Mary Visser, Pascale Chandler, Peter Heyneke, Robyn Pretorius, Tanja Truscott 


Address: 50 Buitenkant Street, Cape Town
Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday: 10:00 - 17:00. Saturday: 10:00 - 14:00.



Participating: Rich Mnisi

Opening: Saturday 2 October 2021 - 4 February 2022
