UJ Arts and Culture presents an exhibition entitled 'Tom Waits for No Man …' curated by Gordon Froud and with works by more than 100 South African artists that pays homage to one of the great visual storytellers of our time.

American singer, songwriter, composer and actor, Thomas Alan Waits (1949 - ), has been a major inspiration to artists, musicians, poets, writers and thinkers for more than four decades and his work still sets the bar for great writing that serves as a rich source of  imagery. Waits launched his career and persona in 1973 with the release of Closing Time; and a 2011 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, 24 albums (including his most recent Bad As Me album) and countless characters later, he is still making us smile, cry and sing along to his songs.

Following on the success of the Leonard Cohen altarpiece exhibition, entitled 'Altered Pieces' that travelled the country and 2011 and 2012, Froud decided to extend his curative activities in the direction of the life and lyrics of this acclaimed songwriter, poet and musician. Artists have worked on LP sized disks or circular format to produce a remarkable variety of works.

Christiaan Diedericks at University of Johannesburg Art Gallery

Christiaan Diedericks’s new show ‘Balancing Heaven and Earth’ takes in influences as disparate as painter Francis Bacon, writer Robert A. Johnston and the groundbreaking films of Dali and Bunuel. His latest body of mixed media drawings and paintings concerns itself with ‘the almost erotic territory of majestic sacrifice and sacrament', touching on the ongoing war in Iraq, atrocities in Sudan and the public hangings of gay men in Arab countries. A walkabout with the artist will be held on Saturday 10 September.

Rina Stutzer and Angus Taylor at University of Johannesburg Art Gallery

Well-known South African sculptor, Angus Taylor, and painter, Rina Stutzer, deconstruct postmodern concerns and delve into aspects of this philosophy in their quest for answers to complex questions. This artist couple will present their first serious collaborative exhibition, which includes installations, sculpture and paintings at the UJ Art Gallery during July 2011.

The title of their most recent collaborative exhibition - 'Dislodge (Loswikkel)' - refers to a purposeful shifting from the safe haven of that which is known, and the need to escape from the stagnant to the uncomfortable head space where revitalisation can occur.
