Eclectica Design and Art is excited to present a new exhibition titled New Dawn.
Participating artists include:
The exhibition will run for three months.
The optimism rippling through the country has vibrated through the various spheres of our society. As with any change or shift within a country and society, the role of reflecting and re-imagining has often fallen to artists to reflect and interpret the signs of our times. In what has been understood as the beginning of a 'new era' within South Africa, with a new president and a new direction for the ruling party, the exploration of these interactions forms the basis for a new exhibition at Eclectica Design and Art.
For the mid-year exhibition at Eclectica Design and Art, each of the artists presented explore and articulate various understandings and interpretations in order to reflect back on and interrogate today's workings. Questioning the state of our environments, what 'new' means and how it really manifests, thinking around identity and lived experience beyond complicities and complexities by creating, making and imagining. In doing so , each artist presents works that can bounce off and around the gallery space, both in relation to each other and individually.
Affirming the notion that South Africa is made up of diverse people with diverse perceptions and conceptions , Eclectica Design and Art presents an exhibition that opens the doors to discourse and interaction.
The exhibition opens on 7 June 2018 from 5:30pm - 9pm
