These are the artworks that made us do a double-take at the 57th Venice Biennale.
Person: Mohau Modisakeng
Mohau Modisakeng and Candice Breitz exhibit their video work at the South African Pavilion opening for the Venice Biennale 2017.
This week in Joburg is jam packed with exhibitions, creative events and the like. We’ll be hosting a workshop at the Act | UJ Creative Conference, checking out some group exhibitions and collaborating in a zine making residency.
Whatiftheworld’s current group show explores what is alien to us – biologically, psychologically, socially, personally and politically – and examines how we might better read bodies not our own.
The National Arts Festival have just released the 2016 Standard Bank Young Artist Award winners. Find out about these young, South African creatives.
Biography is central in Mohau Modisakeng’s work. Casting himself as subject in his dramatic portraits, he enacts the notion of “the personal is political”. Here he speaks to us about this as well as what he has planned for the FNB JoburgArtFair.
This week Cape Town hosts four solo openings, two films festivals, Open Studios and conversations on creativity with local creatives.
The sixth FNB Joburg Art Fair will see photography as its focus and will house the biggest selection of photography of the continent under one roof.
