OPENING: forever- Frances Goodman OPENING: forever- Frances Goodman
Goodman creates atmospheric and immersive installations that cross the boundaries between visual and media arts. Her work unveils everyday routines, obsessions and social interactions. She operates within a local South African context, with a specific focus on the least tended subject of the middle class experience

OPENING: relaas...Rosemarie Marriott OPENING: relaas...Rosemarie Marriott
A paramount force in Marriotts work is the combined act of collecting material such as animal skin or parts (from taxidermists and local farms) and the visceral transformation of that material into often tender or startling new forms.

OPENING: Dialogue among Civilizations –  A project by Art for Humanity  OPENING: Dialogue among Civilizations – A project by Art for Humanity
Limited edition print portfolio and limited edition individual archival prints at an affordable R 700 each.
Art and poetry inspire dignity, respect, pride, and freedom of expression, imagination, recognition of the individual, creativity, excellence and human rights. Dialogue Among Civilizations involves collaboration between artists and poets from Africa and those countries who participated in the 2006 Soccer World Cup.  The participants were invited to create work on the theme of identity, land, object and belief
