  • SOUNDING OUT : EXHIBITION

   
4 July 2012
Bag Factory, Johannesburg


The intersection of contemporary music and visual art animates a forthcoming group exhibition at the Bag Factory Artists' Studios to open on Wednesday 4 July 2012, entitled Sounding Out.

The exhibition was inspired by the increase of incidences in contemporary visual arts that incorporate sound in concept or form. Artists, who 'sound out' their worlds in particular ways, where invited to exhibit primarily new work that broadly speaks to the idea of refrains or echoes, where singularity and multiplicity meet. Sounding Out offers an imaginative rendering of the contemporary moment, infused by an interdisciplinary, collaborative and experimental approach.

Sounding Out's curator, Kim Gurney, said 'the common threads have emerged in the responses of the participating artists. A broad tension is evident in the works between silence and giving voice. There is a deep sense of serious play with the notion of communication, in particular with how one listens and what one hears. The responses are all engaged and thought-provoking and have a trickster spirit.'

Artists exhibited will include Sanell Aggenbach, Lynette Bester, Brendon Bussy, Gordon Froud, Josh Ginsburg, Jared Ginsburg, João Orecchia, Angie Mullins, Neo Muyanga, Nathan Janse van Vuuren.

  • 2081 CONGRESS

   
26 May 2012
August House, Johannesburg
14:00


What happened: It is the year 2081 and we have forgotten everything. Men are forbidden, drama is forbidden, democracy is forbidden. There are rules, laws, algorithms, but there is no memory left, no history. Then, in South Africa, in India, in Brazil, fragments are discovered, which point to something that used to exist. Archives, hard discs, books, knowledge.

We have to put the pieces together.

On the first day of the Congress 20 women (men are forbidden!) try to make sense of the present and the past: short talks, music, performance, film, a fashion show. Anthropologists, historians, shamans and their clones: 2081 only women are allowed – how will our world change? Why were men forbidden? What was violence? All that is left is neo-yogaism.

Juanita Orecchia, PhD will be making a presentation on the evolution of music and the various counter, counter-counter and counter-counter-counter revolutions that occured in the last 50 years.
