STANDBY

THIS WEEK:

Along with the rest of Johannesburg, the art world is gearing up for the huge influx of delegates, journalists, eco warriors and assorted camp followers expected to attend the World Summit for Sustainable Development due to open shortly. Hopefully, a lot of them will take the time off to see what is happening artwise. Main attractions for the visitors are a whole slew of new exhibitions opening at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, the Art City project which will envelop 20 buildings in downtown Jozi in mega-size blowups of artwork, and the art activities at Ubuntu Village, a focal point for the leisure hours between all the conferencing.
