For the first time on the continent of Africa, new photographic works will be exhibited by Zwelethu Mthethwa, one of South Africa’s most influential contemporary artists....

Invite Carla Liesching is a young South African photographer and visual artist currently based Joburg after spending some time living and working in Taipei. Since graduating from Rhodes University, specialising in video and photography, she has been involved in various exhibitions, performances and installations. Her photographic work has been shown both locally and internationally and her series The Swimmers will be showing in Cape Town from 30 March. You're invited to the opening at iArt Gallery, 71 Loop Street. 6.30pm. 30 March. See the invite above for RSVP details. The Swimmers is an on-going series, presented here as an archive of 25 large, limited edition photographs, depicting almost -life-size figures, standing alone in various urban and natural landscapes. Liesching uses her swimmers to explore the link between space and identity and how we think of home. The work has grown out of a state of being that is a defining trait of Liesching's generation: a sense of displacement, an awareness of foreignness and a search for belonging that cannot be tied to one fixed geographical or ideological place.
Carla Crafford Posters Exhibition iArt Gallery has a number of exhibitions coming up (check them out here). We're featuring one with Carla Crafford:
A collection of beautiful original art posters created by Carla Crafford will be on show alongside work from the artist featured in each poster. Carla is a talented photographer, who has long been fascinated with the visual conversations made possible through photographing the work of other artists, particularly sculptors. In juxtaposing the artwork and the poster, the poster as an artwork in its own right is highlighted. We’ve nodded our heads toward our Pop predecessors in showing “fine art” and elements of mainstream media in an exhibition set to illuminate interesting dialogues between the two worlds.
