On the 12th and 13th of May, Gauteng will host the renowned Winter Sculpture Fair in one of Gauteng’s most beautiful landscapes, complete with exquisite food and wine from the Franschhoek Valley.
Artlogic’s renowned Fair returns for its 6th edition at the Nirox Foundation Sculpture Park near the Cradle of Humankind. In partnership with Franschhoek Tourism, visitors will have the chance to meander through the beautiful grounds of Nirox and picnic amongst the majestic sculptures.
The Winter Sculpture Fair will mark the opening of the NIROX Foundation annual winter sculpture exhibition to the public, in collaboration with the Swedish sculpture park, Wanås Konst/The Wanås Foundation.
The winter exhibition is called “Not a single story” which is inspired by “The Danger of a Single Story,” – a TED Talk presented by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, positing that diversity strengthens rather than divides us.
The exhibition is a bi-continental exchange between two of the world’s leading sculpture parks and the selected artists come from various backgrounds, representing a rich diversity of perspectives and influences.
Among others, the artists include:
Yoko Ono (JAP/USA), Esther Mahlangu (ZA), Nandipha Mntambo (ZA), Mary Sibande (ZA), Nelisiwe Xaba (ZA), Claudette Schreuders (ZA), Jane Alexander (ZA), Marcia Kure (NG), Bronwyn Katz (ZA), Beth Diane Armstrong (ZA), Frances Goodman (ZA), Mwangi-Hutter (KE-GE), Marianne Lindberg De Geer (SE), Lungiswa Gqunta (ZA), Gunilla Klingberg & Peter Geschwind (SE), Caroline Mårtensson (SE), Whitney McVeigh (UK) and Sophia Van Wyk
