Student visit to the Norval Foundation

The Honours in Curatorship students recently went on​ a field trip to the new Norval Foundation in Steenberg. We were excited to be greeted by two graduates of the programme who now work at the foundation, Marc Smith (class of 2016) and Güte Immelman (class of 2017), and just as excited to be taken on a private tour. The tour was led by Kutlwano Mogojwa, curatorial and collections assistant, who took us through Re/discovery and Memory (curated by Karel Nel and on until the 20th of September) which houses work by Sydney Kumalo (South Africa), Ezrom Legae (South Africa) and Edoardo Villa (Italy), an installation by Serge Alain Nitegeka (Burundi), as well as the temporary exhibition Pulling at Threads (on until the 20th of August). We then went on to get a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes curatorial process and were taken down into Norval's impressive underground storage vaults. Lastly, we wandered around the sculpture garden, marvelling at works such as Ophelia (2012) by Nandipha Mntambo and Again Again (2015) by Brett Murray, both graduates of the Michaelis School of Fine Art.

Collegian Talks: ruby onyinyechi amanze

We were pleased to host ruby onyinyechi amanze for the first of the CCA's Collegian Talks. On the 17th of May amanze spoke on the process her drawings take and the importance of this in the final artwork, looking at her own immersion into the work, quite literally at times, as well as outside influences from different places she has been to and people she's met to how these manifest in the recurring characters of her work..
