'Pointure'Various Artists at UJ ARTS CENTRE
UJ Arts and Culture will present an exhibition entitled ‘Pointure’ at the UJ Art Gallery. This exhibition, curated by Ann-Marie Tully and Jennifer Kopping, draws together established and emerging contemporary South African artists whose artworks express notions relating to pointure, either thematically and in their inherent material and creation. They hereby intend to create visibility for an expansive and under explored area of art practice in South Africa including, but not limited to, media involved with stitching, suturing, puncturing, printing and weaving; and to do so in a manner that situates this work within the discourse of contemporary art and cultural theory.
Artists featured include Paul Boulitreau, Celia De Villiers, Christiaan Diedericks, Suzanne Erasmus(née du Preez), Stephan Erasmus, Leora Faber, Gordon Froud, Jeanette Gilks, Sue Pam-Grant, Diek Grobler, Marinda du Toit, Kim Gurney, Mike Hyam, the Keiskamma Project, Jennifer Kopping, Michelle Legg, Kim Lieberman, Kai Lossgott, Amita Makan, Gerhard Marx, Tamar Mason, Rosemarie Marriott, Nicole Diffenthal, Moira MacMurray, Jurgen Meekel, Musha Nehuleni, Anitra Nettleton, Walter Oltmann, Sarel Petrus, Richard Penn, Landi Raubenheimer, Claire Rousell, Andrea Rolfes, Sally Rumball, Saran Sunder, John Shirley, Jonna Slappendel, Ann-Marie Tully, Gavin Younge and Yda Walt.
Walkabout with the curators: August 14, 2012, 14:00 - 17:00.
Opening address by Professor Gavin Younge (Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT): August 8, 2012 at 18:30.
