End Tuesday on a high note with an intimate performance at Cape Town city ...
Anton, Hylton, Serge, Viviane and Claudette at Michael Stevenson Gallery
Michael Stevenson's 15th annual summer exhibition will comprise five solo shows
Anton Kannemeyer, Viviane Sassen, Claudette Schreuders, Serge Alain Nitegeka and Hylton Nel.
Anton Kannemeyer will show new works and a few classics from his Alphabet of Democracy series.
Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen will exhibit at the gallery for the first time. Her imagery is infused with memories of her youth, from the beauty of the landscape and the children with whom she used to play to the poverty of the shanty towns and her doctor-father's terminally ill patients.
Claudette Schreuders will show four new sculptures in a new series entitled Close, close - taken from a poem by Elizabeth Bishop, which describes a sleeping couple and reflects on the 'closeness' being both comforting and stifling.
Based on his experience of Johannesburg, Serge Alain Nitegaka - winner of the 2010 Tollman Award for Visual Art – will show meditations on form.
In anticipation of Hylton Nel's 70th birthday in 2011, the gallery will exhibit recent works by the artist for the first time in five years. Nel continues to develop his distinctive style of work, rich in references to the decorative arts, literary and art-historical sources, and South African life.
