Nelson Mandela Museum presents ‘layers of an artist diary’

November 29, 2010

The Nelson Mandela Museum launches a ground breaking exhibition themed ‘layers of an artist diary’, which is not only of cultural value, but an economic anchor for Eastern Cape artists. This exhibition, is a collection of artworks produced by different artists during an arts-incubator program held in Qunu in the past six weeks. The launch will be held at the Nelson Mandela Youth & Heritage Centre in Qunu on Thursday 2nd December 2010 at 11h00.

The exhibition comprises compelling, multifaceted art-works: unique works of leather, bringing the past to the present; fine combination of metal and wire art, creating a surreal mood through bizarre imagery; oil paintings that redefine traditional naturalist scenery such as rural landscape, roses and broken leaves; comic art and sculptures. This exhibition is the first series of an arts incubator that provides Eastern Cape audiences a first opportunity to experience in depth, the works of their very own young artist transformed to emerging artists.

Curated by Churchill Madikida, a renowned Eastern Cape born artist based in Johannesburg, the exhibition will open to the public on Thursday, 2nd December, 2010, and will remain on show for public viewing through December 2010 and January 2011

Special thanks to Sasol Limited. Additional support for this program has been provided by the University of Pretoria.

Nelson Mandela Museum, established on 11 February 2000 is popular for its arts projects that are intended to create opportunities for artists.
