10and5 Artist Acceleration and Exposure Programme Artists Announced

Artist Acceleration and Exposure Programme (A3E) is 10and5’s new initiative which aims to upskill emerging artists across South Africa. We are giving talented artists a platform to reach new markets, and help them break into the art/gallery scene. 

We received an overwhelming number of submissions across a variety of art mediums, and with the help of our curation team made up of Banele Khoza, Makgati Molebatsi and Lezanne Viviers; we were able to shortlist an incredible line up of graphic artists, photographers, fine artists and sculptures.
