Outlet


New Exhibition Space in Pretoria

Outlet is a new exhibition space in Pretoria, and is the brainchild of Pretoria artist, Abrie Fourie. The venue was conceived as a conceptual space that will promote artistic collaboration and interaction in Pretoria. Challenging traditional notions of exhibition spaces, Outlet is an unpretentious two-metre square room ala 'White Cube/ Palais de Tokyo'. It is situated on the Pretoria Technikon's Arts Campus, and will serve as a nucleus or token homebase for the generation, circulation, and realisation of 'local, national and international artistic endeavours/enterprises'.

Outlet's first project will be a prototype for the spirit of collaboration envisioned. This will be a work in progress, taking shape over the next few months, gradually documenting in photographs, the comings and goings of visitors and guests. As such, their presence and participation in the project will be captured as part of the space's evolving and unfolding history. The proposed result: an exhibition of photographs tracing this virtual gathering. This will in effect introduce Outlet, begin the networking process, and promote the collective ideal that is at the heart of Outlet.

Anyone interested in participating in this project or finding out more about Outlet should contact Abrie Fourie at 082 7754 272 or Asha Zero at 012 325 0525 / outlet@mweb.co.za
