Opening: THURSDAY 29 NOV. 18:00(exhibition closes 19 Jan. 2013)
When form becomes attitude is a group exhibition focusing on an emerging generation of South African artists whose practices take aesthetic positions that are primarily formal rather than mimetic or symbolic. Alluding to rich histories of formalism, not only in Western modernism but in African, Islamic and mythical traditions as well, these artists are carving a space for non-representational art within a local art scene and market that is steeped in representational conventions.
Participating artists: Igshaan Adams, Jan-Henri Booyens, Tuscani Cardoso, Jared Ginsburg, Rodan Kane Hart, Nico Krijno, Donna Kukama, Turiya Magadlela, Nomthunzi Mashalaba, Kyle Morland, Catherine Ocholla, Gerda Scheepers, Jaco van Schalkwyk, James Webb.
