‘Creator Curator / Curator Creator’ curated by Lucia Boer.
The exhibition explores the duality between the curator and the artist as a joint expression to enhance the experience and meaning of a body of work. ‘Creator Curator / Curator Creator‘ will include works by artists with whom Lucia had some form of curatorial relationship working in the art industry and whose work she admires and collects. There is not necessarily a concurrent theme running through the selected works, but rather works that resonate with Lucia on a personal and curatorial level and through which the concept of the relationship between curator and artist is expressed.
The exhibition is curated from a collector’s point of view and the exploration of their own space based on a love for the artworks and the relationships that surround it.
Participating artists include Allen Laing, Anna-Carien Goosen, Artist Proof Studio, August de Wet, Cecile Heystek, Christelle van Zyl, Collen Maswanganyi, Danelle Janse van Rensburg, Dead Bunny Society, Gabrielle Goliath, Gerhard Marx, Gordon Froud, Hanneke Benade, Jaco van Schalkwyk, Justus van der Hoven, Maja Marx, Mandy Johnston, Mmabatho Grace Mokalapa, Suzanne Erasmus, Wessel van Dyk, Wilhelm Saayman and Zwelethu Machepha
