Keyes Art Mile and Galerie Pascal Janssens

The Invisible Generation by Pascal Dombis | special showcase

The Invisible Generation is a site specific installation in which Pascal Dombis questions our relationship with images and how we see them today. Reading digital images becomes quite different from the conventional retinal vision of images. The installation wall is entirely covered by a print composed by 30.000 Googled images, they are displayed in a way that prevent a ‘clear’ reading. The reading can be revealed and read when using a lenticular sheet that the visitor can handle and apply on the wall.

The showcase is presented by Galerie Pascal Janssens with thanks to the support from Keyes Art Mile.

18h30 | The Atrium, Keyes Art Mile, 19 Keyes Avenue, Rosebank

Urban Findings

Urban Findings | group exhibition opening

Curated by: Mbali Tshabalala and Nomandla Waca

Artists: Andrew Kayser, Toni-Ann Ballenden, Johan Stegmann, Patrick Seruwu, Matla Kheola, Nicole Rafiki, Sanusi Olatunji, Nicola Holgate, Lynette van Tonder, Paula Louw, Petros Mwenga, Elizabeth Davison, Johan Adam, Vusi Beauchamp, Vivien Kohler, Jake Michael Singer, Greatjoy Ndlovu, Mbali Tshabalala, Odette Graskie, Fleur de Bondt, Lindokuhle Khatide

The title of this exhibition is taken literally from the concept of gathering or putting together fragments of an urban setting. The exhibition shines a light on artists working from artist studios/hubs across the city. The artists in this exhibition explore a number of subjects in their own work and this exhibition simply gathers contemporary collective thinking from city artists.

Project presented by: Mbali Tshabalala and Nomandla Waca, Keys Art Mile, Anecdotes gallery and Collective Untitled.

Stevenson

Objects of Desire, Addendum by Meleko Mokgosi | exhibition opening

Objects of Desire, Addendum exists as a postscript to Mokgosi’s acclaimed, long-standing visual essay, 'Democratic Intuition', of which 'Comrades', exhibited at Stevenson, Cape Town, in 2016, was the second of eight chapters. Comprising painting and sculpture, 'Democratic Intuition' questioned how one can approach the conceptual promises of democracy in relation to the daily lived experiences of the subjects that occupy southern Africa.

As the closing chapters of the project, Objects of Desire – shown at Honor Fraser, Los Angeles, in 2018 – and Objects of Desire, Addendum jointly examine the contemporary African object with the aim of challenging the legacy of African art as a tool for modernists in developing their own methodologies. Of this particular exhibition, Mokgosi states: ‘It is a reworking of some of the major elements from the final chapter, narrowing and clarifying the argument.’

10h00 - 13h00 | 46 7th Avenue, Parktown North

Goodman Gallery

Over Time by Carrie Mae Weems | exhibition opening

Over Time brings together work which considers how the past comes to bear on the present, such as 'Blue Notes' - a series featuring blurred images of women of colour who have not received their due recognition. By obscuring these figures with coloured blocks, Weems creates, in her words, a visual metaphor for people 'living behind walls of colour that block us from knowing who they are, from accessing them, from equity, from equal rights'.

Kalashnikovv Gallery

Symptoms of Nothing by Yolanda Mazwana | exhibition opening

Symptoms of Nothing explores experiences, scenarios, thoughts, panic attacks, and environments that are re-imagined into characters that represent the questions of a possible hypochondriac. Following my previous solo exhibition Secret Homegirls, I have further gone into the observation of the agoraphobic secret home girls as it is connected and is much more grotesque.

As a body of work, Symptoms of Nothing is a combination of textures and colours that define the intensity expressed of a hypochondriac. These compositions define what it means to not know what you are going through or why you are going through it.

Curated and compiled by The Centre's Director of Photography, Noah Cohen alongside founder William Kentridge and animateurs Phala Ookeditse Phala and Bronwyn Lace, the installation displays the wide range of practices in the form of visual artists, videographers, musicians, choreographers, dancers, theatre practitioners, writers, composers, beatboxers, and digital practitioners that come together each season in the processes of creating new work.

FNB Art Joburg

The first edition of FNB Art Joburg

As Joburg’s leading art fair, FNB Art Joburg has ushered in many exciting changes to establish a platform for distinctively top quality content. With over 250 art fairs around the world, the time had come to re-imagine and transform the local art scene. Evolving from an approach focussed on filling exhibitor space, sponsorship and the inaugural galleries now subsidise the new model. As close collaborators, they also contribute to the sustainability of the fair, which remains open and accessible but focused on a less-is-more approach.

Other important shifts include game-changing additions like the Gallery Lab incubator space and an impressive MAX section to build a unique experience.

11h00 - 20h00 | Sandton Convention, Centre, Exh 2; 161 Maude St, Sandown, Sandton

JUGGLING SKILLS by Gareth Nyandoro | exhibition opening

SMAC presents a new solo show by Gareth Nyandoro who currently lives and works in Harare, Zimbabwe. Nyandoro uses a combination of collage and painting, and has developed a distinctive technique he calls “Kuchekacheka”, a Shona word which means ‘to cut’. It involves using sharp blades to cut shapes and figures into paper, which is then sponged over with ink, prior to stripping the surface layer of paper with tape. Growing up in Zimbabwe, Nyandoro is interested in the trade and commerce as found in local marketplaces, tracing moments of human interaction within the fabric of the urban environment.

Pan-African listening session played on Vinyl by Nombuso Mathibela 

The session is an exploration of continental becoming, through music as a space for the expression of African problems, hopes, desires and joy. We bring to you healing songs, chants and melodies from the continent of Africa and diaspora as one response to sonic kinship and solidarity in the climate of epistemic, quiet, murderous violence against our own in South Africa. To remind the forgetful the countless ways in which the African continent stood as a life-line in our darkest moments.

For The Culture

Heritage is Culture | performance

Grace Makopa Letsoalo, Ompemetse Ramathlatse and Queenzela Mokoena

For The Culture is an art project that stems from quarterly fashion walks hosted on the streets of Braamfontein. These fashion walks are statement pieces aiming to draw people into a culture of art of a different form and to demonstrate how young, black and disadvantaged creatives have taken to the culture of fashion and thrift to make their lives better and to better represent themselves in the aim of economic advancement.

The project also aims to disrupt how people view landscapes in relation to their bodies, hence the fashion shows taking place in the streets accompanied by performances. For The Culture ultimately wants to shift the narrative of negative comments upon the youth and to show that they are doing positive things outside.

This song for... By Gabrielle Goliath | conversation 

Gabrielle Goliath will be in conversation with Danielle Bowler and BŪJIN

2019 SBYA for Visual Art, Gabrielle Goliath, enables opportunities to resist the violent forms of representation that vulnerable bodies are fixed in.

In “This Song Is For…”, she re-performs a unique collection of dedication songs chosen by survivors of rape in collaboration with musical ensembles.Each song is performed as a newly produced cover-version that reflects an entanglement of different experiences.

The sonic disruption introduced in each song is then an opportunity for listeners to inhabit a contested space of emotional recall and memory.

Exploring Space: Drop-In Drawing with Bronwen Findlay

Joachim Schönfeldt’s Panels of Place are made either as individual panels, or shields of five or six circular lenses surrounded by an interlacing wooden ribbon. Inspired by his works, we’ll be using circles to explore the ways space is created in an artwork. Will we be creating from a bird’s eye view or taking a 360° panorama? Come join us at this month’s Drop-In Drawing and find out!
