Other Peoples’ Memories, a group show
This group show explores the ways in which history and memory exist in the process of making, as well as the process of viewing, and by extension, the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the viewer. The works included in the exhibition are the result of the artists’ relationship to something which has already happened, so that the artwork becomes an act of insertion, where the artists’ personal history becomes part of the historical, social or cultural moment.
Goodman Gallery, 163 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood

Normal Man, a solo exhibition by Wayne Barker
The normal man in Wayne Barker’s latest body of work is the visible and invisible man, everyday man, ordinary man, anonymous man, every man and everyman. Artworks include beaded canvases and oil paintings that protrude into the sculptural realm.
Circa on Jellicoe, 2 Jellicoe Avenue, Rosebank
Vista, a landscape exhibition by Karin Daymond, Belinde Fourie and Laurel Holmes
These three South African painters have captured the landscape through brushstrokes in a way that expresses their individual ideas, approaches and aesthetic vision, yet ties them together in their passion for painting the vista.
