Nina Barnett, Robyn Nesbitt and Apichaya Wanthiang have been collaborating on a project in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and in between for the past two weeks during their residency at S&L. They will be sharing fragments of their work and experiences with you and will take you on a walk through the neighbourhood. The evening will be a collection of works, performances and actions celebrating these artists currently working at and with Sober & Lonely. There will be a specific food making workshop, a walk into or out of the Melville Koppies, a foot painting experience, a Karoo flashback, and more. Join us with an open mind for some beer, food, and unexpected events.

The exhibition is a collection of thinkers, makers and individuals of significance that have had a profound impact on collective thought. Starting from his own mental archive, it is an investigation into how mutual thought processes are formed, how canons are created, how they form themselves into communal inspiration and how rehearsals of canons have the tendency to reinforce the power of particular thought.
