The Creative Exchange, opening in JHB
06 SEPTEMBER 2011 AT 6:30PM
The exhibition will run until 23 September 2011
On 6th September 2011, The Creative Exchange launches a sustainable initiative in support of Africa’s emerging artistic talent. The programme brings together business partners Hollard, Artinsure and the Creative Block with not-for profit company Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) in creating exhibition and mentorship opportunities to the continent’s rising stars.
This year’s nominees are Maurice Mbikayi from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nomthunzi Mashalaba from South Africa. Come and experience their works on display in the century-old Sir Herbert Baker designed Villa Arcadia. Open to the public, the launch on 6th September at 18h30 will offer guests the opportunity to view these artworks for the first time and speak to the artists about their work. To view the exhibition hereafter, please contact to book a guided tour.
Not an arts sponsorship, but an exchange, The Creative Exchange is designed to offer the selected artists an opportunity to significantly benefit their work and career development by providing the necessary financial support. In exchange, the Hollard Collection is offered first option to acquire artworks from each of the artists’ exhibitions to the value of the investment. The artists have also created special Creative Block artworks that will be available for sale to the public.
