Talk to Us

Various Artists at Iziko South African National Gallery

'Talk to Us' is a programme of conversations, workshops, screenings and performances that runs over the last week of the exhibition ‘Us’ at Iziko South African National Gallery. The programme will be accompanied by the 'Us' catalogue launch.

Blank Projects: Friday 5 Nov from 6pm

Blank Projects will host a conversation between artists working in film and photography called: 'Recorded Fictions: still and moving image'. Participants will show their own work, or work they have selected. The idea is for them to discuss the work’s process and formal choices. This is intended to generate a conversation that moves away from overloading the recorded image with ‘content’, focussing the discussion on how ‘form’ generates an image of the self (or not-self), and not the other way around.

Chaired by Alex Dodd, participants include: Dave Southwood, the Essop twins, Mohau Modisakeng and Laurence Bonvin. We will also screen Bridget Baker’s ‘The Pilot’ and ‘Sometimes Wondering’.

Iziko South African National Gallery: Saturday 6 Nov    

At Iziko South African National Gallery there will be a finnisage event including performances and a discussion.

The discussion, titled 'Performative Gestures in Diverse Practices', will be held between the curators, Simon Njami (curator of Africa Remix and founding editor of Revue Noire) and Bettina Malcomess, with Jay Pather (UCT School of Drama), well known for both performance and choreography and founder of Siwele Sonke Dance troupe. The talk, chaired by Andrew Lamprecht, will look at how the different roles played by these practitioners ‘gesture’ at many publics. There will also be performative actions by artists: Gimberg Nerf, Gerald Machona, Justin Brett and remotely, by Bridget Baker.

Donna Kukama will deliver the opening of the closing address, as part of her series ‘1000 Ways of Being: I am absolutely ending this!’

05 November - 06 November
