20:00 - 21:00 Reception and Exhibition Opening

The exhibition Taking it to the street: The Art of Public Life, curated by Tanya Gershon, will explore the role of the street performer in the construction of a vibrant public sphere in Johannesburg. Through their personal stories, spatial visualizations and data collection, the exhibition will analyze the obstacles these artists encounter to access public space. Gershon, currently a student of the CCCP Program and a graduate of the MARCH Program at GSAPP, has been developing this research on the spatial politics of the informal network of street performers in Johannesburg as part of her Masters Thesis. The exhibition will include a street art installation by Nolan O. Dennis  + Fuzzy Slipperz.
