GRID is an international photography biennial which is to be organized in several important upcoming creative cities in the world. GRID brings together formal country exhibitions and statements from the creative industry. Anticipating on a changing society which is centred on visual communication, GRID focuses on contemporary image culture worldwide to exchange visions and cultures. The biennial creates a platform for photographers, curators, creatives, educational projects and the public with the goal to stimulate an international dialogue.
GRID Cape Town will take place from the 14th of February until the 15th of March 2015. Around 20 countries and projects will participate with a photography and/or video art exhibition. GRID brings together exhibitions by international and local artists, from well known artists to the most exciting, emerging talent. The main exhibition areas of the biennial are the Castle of Good Hope, the Watershed at the V&A Waterfront and 6 Spin Street. Along with the photographic exhibitions, GRID offers an extensive educational programme of talks, workshops and events from local contributors. These will provide space for reflection and generate new insights and energy on micro and macro levels thereby functioning as a pulse for social innovation and awareness.
Shedding light on South Africa’s limitless creative potential, GRID aims to promote the South African creative industry and enable international dialogue.
