'Gradex 2014'

Various Artists at Stellenbosch Visual Arts Department

The 2014 graduates of the Stellenbosch Visual Arts Department invite you to attend Gradex 2014.

Gradex is an annual exhibition organised by the graduating students of the Visual Arts Department of Stellenbosch University. It showcases the graduate work from the Fine Arts, Jewellery Design and Visual Communication Design disciplines. This exhibition will therefore serve as a singular showcase for the three divergent streams of study.

The aim of Gradex 2014 is to develop a contextual platform for individuals, while still responding to the rhythms of collective praxis. This objective has informed the curatorial decision to integrate the works within each discipline; presenting a group show that is contextualised within the architectural and social construction of the building as exhibition space.

The curatorial challenge of this show did not only reside in its inter-disciplinary nature and anomalous setting, but also in its large variety of mediums. For the final year students of 2014, the graduate exhibition is to function as a preface, serving boldly as the first steps into professional industry.

Gradex 2014 strives to encourage a generative interface between art and design that can make a significant contribution - reflecting both contemporary South African culture, as well as the international creative milieu.

The opening night of the exhibition is the 28th of November, and will run until 10 December. It will be open for viewing 10am to 5pm during the week, and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Please note that the industry walkabout will be between 1pm and 3pm on Friday 28th November. If interested in attending the preview, please RSVP to gradex2014@gmail.com

All works will be for sale throughout the show.

28 November - 10 December
