28 Jun See this, do that: CT | 28 June – 4 July 2016
This week in Cape Town there are loads of gallery openings, an AfrikaBurn Decompression party and our first ever Night Owls event in the Mother City! Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean there aren’t things to do and places to be. Time to see some art, hear some music and meet fellow creatives.

Claire Johnson’s first solo exhibition features linocuts, fabric works and acrylic paintings. “An object without context cannot speak for itself, so the viewers subjective perception is the only real experience, regardless of my intentions….If the viewer were to know what the object was, the illusion would be broken and the process exposed. With the power of imagination thus hindered, the baggage of the work’s context would prevent the viewer from having ownership over its meaning,” says Claire about her latest body of work.

Traces of Time
After great success in Johannesburg, Abe Opperman has opened another gallery in Cape Town. When contemplating a suitable topic for the opening exhibition of his new gallery, Opperman asked himself what the Mother City signifies for him. Taking his inspiration from the notion of time and our relationship with it, he created Traces of Time. Visit here for more.
