This week’s openings and exhibition listings have a constructed theme to them: It’s the much anticipated opening of MOAD – the Museum of African Design in Maboneng. Make an effort to see the Southern Guild showcase that is opening the space, as it’s the biggest to-date, and will offer a great overarching view of Southern African design. Justin Fiske’s show on at The Standard Bank Gallery is another must-see, where you can interact with kinetic sculptures that quite simply, are amazing.
The Museum of African Design (MOAD) opens in Maboneng with the largest to date showcase of Southern Guild collectable art design pieces.
The showcase will comprise 115 brand new pieces, as well as 50 iconic pieces taken from the SG collections over the last 5 years. The winners of the 2013 Southern Guild Foundation Awards will also be announced on the night.

re•con•struct by Stephan Erasmus at Nirox Projects at Arts on Main.
In Stephan Erasmus’s work, structure plays an important role with particular focus on the encryption process. In this exhibition Erasmus explores the act of writing love letters through the sampling of existing text and transforming the text into two dimensional and three dimensional objects.
NiroxProjects, 264 Fox Street, Arts on Main.
On until 6th November 2013.
