The For Sale Project Group Exhibition 2017 features three pairs of artists from various academic institutions in Tshwane: the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), the University of Pretoria (UP) and the University of South Africa (Unisa). This years' exhibition differs from previous exhibitions curated over the past decade and a half in that, for the first time, it offers the opportunity for the voices of young contemporary artists who are not affiliated with the Pretoria Art Museum's Education and Development Programme to be heard.
For Sale Project Group Exhibition's strategic team presents the work of Danna Hall (UP), Rolene Byleveld (UP), Sello Letswalo (TUT), Sipho Ntjie (TUT), Louise Steenpoorte (Unisa) and Duduzile Mlilo (Unisa) in an exhibition aimed at exposing the work of these artists to the contemporary art market scene in Tshwane. Thematically speaking the body of work submitted for this exhibition straddles isolation, mass media manipulation, abuse and the somewhat enigmatic ambivalence brought to bear on our society by the technological advances of our time. The range of techniques featured in this exhibition ranges from drawing and mixed media to photography and digital prints.
The artist whose work sells the most at this exhibition will be selected to hold a solo exhibition in 2018. This is in line with the core aim of the For Sale Project Exhibition to expose young contemporary artists to the art-supporting public and the contemporary art market in Tshwane and South Africa.
The For Sale Project Group Exhibition 2017 will be on show in the East Gallery of the Pretoria Art Museum from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10:00 to 16:00, with guided tours arranged by appointment. The exhibition will be on show until Sunday, 6 August 2017.
The Pretoria Art Museum is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10:00 to 17:00.
It is closed on Mondays and public holidays.
