Our friends, FOUND Collective, are proud to present FIX, an exhibition of new contemporary artworks by Pretoria artists. FIX speaks to many facets of a creative experience in Pretoria. It explores references to the many cultural ideologies that remain fixed in place, the craving to get a fix of its people when they’re away for too long, or the repair that its contemporary art scene needs and deserves.
FOUND Collective is a group of young creatives and professionals based in Pretoria, operating as a non-profit organisation, who share the goal of invigorating the city’s art scene, connecting its art community, and pushing its creatives to new heights and to the limits of their potential. FOUND is dedicated to the facilitation of great art through collaboration, the sharing of skills and industry know-how and the development of opportunities for artists specifically within Pretoria.
FIX will be held at the Prinschurch building on the corner of Helen Joseph Street (formerly Church Street) and Sisulu Street at the 012Central Precinct, and will open at 10h00 on the 23rd of April 2016, after which it run daily until the 30th of April 2016 from 10h00 until 15h00.
The exhibition will feature a range of media, from oil paintings, installation pieces, photography and sculpture, and will feature more than 20 artists including Michelle Le Grange, Diane Victor, Banele Khoza, Nelmarie du Preez, Heidi Fourie, Allen Laing, Setlamorago Mashilo, Jotam Schoeman, Thabo Pitso, Daandrey Steyn, Nina Torr, Dylan Graham and Mashudu Nevhutalu.
