Description

ENGAGE 2019
World Art Day exhibition
In April 2011, at the 17th General Assembly of the International Association of Arts (IAA) held in Guadalajara, Mexico, a proposal was unanimously accepted that a ‘World Art Day’ be declared on 15 April each year to celebrate and promote the role which the visual arts play in die global community. That date marks the birthday of Leonardo da Vinci.

This year the Association of Arts Pretoria is hosting an exceptional exhibition entitled ENGAGE 2019. The central theme of this exhibition is the informal collaboration between invited artists who either work in 2D or 3D. Each artist is assigned to another artist and asked to work in collaboration with his or her partner. By engaging each individual artist with another artist, it is to be seen whether a visual and intellectual synergy is established. This fascinating experiment could create a marriage of either convenience or inconvenience. Obviously the duo’s works will be exhibited in close proximity of each other.

Invited couples
Allen Laing & Heidi Fourie; Gordon Froud & Diane Victor; Carol Kühn & Avitha Sooful; Nicholas Prinsloo & Danelle Janse van Rensburg; Lawrence Lemaoana & Mary Sibande; Stephen Hobbs & Bronwyn Millar; Johann Nortjé & Leanne Olivier; Lothar Böttcher & Nicki Böttcher; Hannelie Coetzee & Reney Warrington; Francois Visser & Lizanne Visser; Andre Otto & Lizel Otto; Dylan Graham & Alet Pretorius; Retha Buitendach & Kathy Eales; Lourens Ferreira & Lala Crafford ; Janus Fouché & Mienke Fouché ; Izanne Wiid & Sunet Ferreira

The exhibition will be opened on Monday 15 April 2019 at 18h30 for 19h00 in the Mackie Street gallery of the Association of Arts Pretoria and will run until Wednesday 15 May 2019.

ENGAGE 2019 (WISSELWERKING)
Wêreldkunstedag uitstalling 2019

In April 2011, tydens die 17de algemene vergadering van die Internasionale Vereniging van Kuns (IAA) gehou te Guadalajara, Mexiko, is ‘n voorstel eenparig aanvaar dat ‘n ‘Wêreldkunstedag’ elke jaar op 15 April gevier sal word. Die dag gedenk en bevorder die rol wat die visuele kunste speel in die globale gemeenskap. Dit is ook die datum van kunstenaar Leonardo da Vinci se geboorte.

Vanjaar huisves die Pretoria Kunsvereniging ‘n ongewone uitstalling onder die vaandel ENGAGE 2019. Die tema van die uitstalling is die informele same- en wisselwerking tussen pare wat genooi word om deel te neem en werke in 2D, 3D of op film skep. Deur die kunstenaars in pare te laat werk, poog die Kunsvereniging dat die pare visuele en intellektuele sinergie daarstel. Die proefneming kan dus huwelike van gerief of ongerief voortbring.

Die uitstalling open op Maandag 15 April 2019 om 18h30 vir 18h00 en duur tot Woensdag 15 Mei 2019.
