STEVENSON is pleased to announce the launch of ‘9 More Weeks’, a book of artist interviews by Sinazo Chiya, accompanied by an exhibition of works by the interviewed artists: Dada Khanyisa, Zander Blom, Bronwyn Katz, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Mame-Diarra Niang, Guy Tillim, Claudette Schreuders, Simphiwe Ndzube and Portia Zvavahera.
‘9 More Weeks’ follows ‘9 Weeks’, a series of conversations with artists conducted by visiting writer/curator Hansi Momodu-Gordon and published by Stevenson in early 2016. Where the first volume, in Momodu-Gordon’s words, ‘mapped a journey through an artistic landscape, at a particular moment in time’, Chiya’s edition functions ‘to reflect rather than map the elasticity of artists’ psyches and practices in an accelerated social moment’.
‘9 More Weeks’ is open for viewing from Saturday 1 September. The book launch and official opening take place on Saturday 8 September from 10am to 4pm.
A conversation between Chiya and Stevenson director Joost Bosland, about the mode of the artist interview, will take place on 8 September from 11am.
