THIS WEEK:

As 2001 draws to a close, we take a look back at the highs and lows of the year that was. Which South African artists made the greatest impact at home and abroad? Which galleries and sponsors deserve the most recognition for their initiatives and support? Artthrob's regular writers have each selected their top 10 artists and top five exhibitions/projects, and together compiled lists of the best newcomers, galleries, sponsors, publications and competitions. Our choices are personal and, with three out of five writers based in Cape Town, the geographics are skewed. Nonetheless the lists testify to a remarkable year in which South African artists made major inroads internationally and continued to mature and flourish at home. The only person to appear in all five top 10s, making him our Artist of the Year, is Robin Rhode - his work cited as challenging, fresh, funny and imaginative. Congratulations to all involved in South African art who made this such an unforgettable year.

This is the last edition of Artthrob for 2001. Thanks to our readers and advertisers for your support and best wishes for a fabulous, peaceful festive season.
