REVIEWS CAPE TOWN:Brett Murray sculpture unveiled
NEWS: French Institute launches new range of catalogues on SA artists

Eat my shorts, Brett Murray might well have said as his sculpture Africa was unveiled on St George�s Mall in Cape Town on Friday, May 26. Not one of threatened protesters showed up, and there was a palpable sense of civic pride as a large crowd viewed the handsome and intriguing sculpture which will no doubt soon start showing up in tourist images of the city. The ArtThrob review appears today.

Coming up in the June issue of ArtThrob: Emma Bedford reviews Dak/Art 2000, a whole slew of new overseas shows are listed, and 80-year-old Robert Hodgins is the subject ofArtBio.

In future, the new monthly issue of ArtThrob will go up on the first Tuesday instead of the first day of each month, so the June issue will go online Tuesday, June 6. Check in then.
