The University Art Gallery will open the 2014-2015 exhibition season with ‘David Southwood: N1 and Beach Boys’, an exhibition that brings together two connected bodies of work by the internationally acclaimed South African artist: ‘The N1 (National Road One) ‘project, and ‘Beach Boys’. ‘N1’ profiles the longest freeway in South Africa, the road that connects country’s two largest cities, Cape Town and Johannesburg.  ‘Beach Boys’ documents the lives of a group of Tanzanian stowaways who live amongst the N1 infrastructure in Cape Town. Both projects combine photography with social commitment, and both explore transitional, interstitial places and the question of what it takes to make a ‘place.’
