Johannesburg based photographer, Kgomotso Neto is the winner of a new art award to be launched at UNDERLINE 2019. Selected from the group of artists exhibiting at the 2019 UNDERLINE show, Kgomotso has collaborated with Devil’s Peak to create a limited edition beer can featuring his work.
The UNDERLINE show is a new annual exhibition and curatorial platform dedicated to supporting independent voices in contemporary art. Founded by curators, through a combination of private and public partnerships, the exhibition offers curators as well as artists an opportunity to present and exhibit within a larger curated show. The inaugural edition opens to the public from 12-15 September 2019 at the Museum of African Design (MOAD) in Maboneng, with the space being generously provided by the GSA (Graduate School of Architecture) at the University of Johannesburg.
This initiative aims to celebrate South Africa and support local talent. Kgomotso’s solo project Middle Centre is curated by Sibongile Msimango & Sam Goldblatt.
This forms part of the brand’s new Kasi to Kasi programme. Below are some of the entries from the programme:
In addition, the show’s PERFORMANCE programme 2019 will be presented in partnership with the Bag Factory Artists’ Studios.
