Now in its second year, the NPC–CIMPOR 'Develop A New Angle On Concrete' photographic competition attracted more than 400 entries from enthusiastic amateur and professional photographers across KwaZulu-Natal. Inspired by KwaZulu-Natal cityscapes, concrete bridges and a variety of innovative concrete structures, photographers were required to capture images which feature concrete and cement prominently in their design, whilst also being beautiful, interesting and striking. The three award winning photographs along with the top 50 finalists will be on display at the KZNSA Gallery.

Conrad Botes at KZNSA Gallery

The KZNSA, in association with Michael Stevenson Gallery, is pleased to present a survey exhibition by Conrad Botes. The work on show is a document of the artist’s grappling with the primal urges at the root of suffering. His imagery is rooted in our time and our dilemmas, yet strongly references the biblical notions of sin, retribution, guilt and, ultimately, redemption. In his title for the show, 'On Earth as it is in Heaven', he reminds us how we make God in our image, and that the Christian notions of judgement are ultimately us judging ourselves.

Makiwa Mutomba at KZNSA Gallery

The solo exhibition 'Andhra Pradesh' by acclaimed Pretoria-based artist Makiwa Mutomba is inspired by his recent cultural exchange visit to Hyderabad, a city in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh in India. Mutomba’s exhibition consists of small to miniature oil paintings in his signature pallete-knife style. He notes, 'As an artist, I seek color in everything I see and so, upon my arrival in India, I was immediately drawn to the colours of the place… It is an artist’s paradise, the colours of the saris and the painted dwellings, the Rangoli (floor painting using either sand, flowers or rice)… Colour is certainly very important to the Indians – I was fascinated to learn that there is even a Festival of Colours'.

Fresh from its successful stint in Cape Town, part of the Spier Contemporary 2010 Exhibition will be exhibited as part of a nationwide tour to various centres in South Africa. The Winners’ Tour Exhibition will present the artworks of the prize winners that were drawn from the 132 pieces originally selected for the Spier Contemporary 2010.

An independent judging panel made five career development awards of R100 000. The people of Cape Town made a further cash award (Audience Choice), and another seven artists won prestigious international artist-in-residency awards.

The Africa Centre, the organisation that presents the Spier Contemporary, is delighted that the Winners’ Tour will be bringing this interesting perspective on South Africa’s contemporary art to a broader national audience. Says Africa Centre Director, Tanner Methvin; “Moving the entire exhibition is a costly exercise. This abridged version is an exciting step that allows us to achieve our intention of sharing the Spier Contemporary 2010 with as many people in South Africa as possible.”

The Spier Contemporary 2010’s Career Advancement prize-winners included Araminta de Clermont, Hasan and Husain Essop, Dave Robertson, Jessica Gregory and Zen Marie, and Christopher Swift. The Artist-in-Residency Awards went to Lindi Arbi, Mohau Modisakeng, Sicelo Ziqubu, Jacki McInnes, Mlu Zondi, Angela De Jesus and Johann van der Schijff. Janine Allen and Rudolph Tshie won the Audience Choice Award jointly.

The Spier Contemporary 2010 is made possible with the generous support of Spier.
