Once we were heroes

23 June 2021

In recognising the complexities of the times, Once we were heroes, in partnership with The Art Bank of South Africa, attempts to acknowledge and celebrate the artists who have persevered and continued to produce artworks without the certainty of what will become of their produce, as the old normal would have "given" them. The exhibition title is a play on words on what would become of the South African creative sector and its heroes, the artists in the new normal. Once we were heroes attempts to respond to the lingering uncertainty brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic. The world appears to be on standby. References have been made to a new normal, alluding to a future that is unknown.

Participating: Various artists


Address: North-West University's Potchefstroom Campus
