‘ WHAT’S GOING ON? ‘ AT LOVELL GALLERY
EXHIBITION OPEN FROM 8 FEBRUARY – 4 APRIL 2014
Experience South Africa today through the eyes of artists who reflect on and respond to what’s going on around them.
What’s Going On? A simple, universal enquiry we make often to draw insight into the interconnected world of the individual and the world which we interdependently share; experiences and happenings which we are consciously or unconsciously disconnected from and or connected to.
The Lovell Gallery is proud to present its first exhibition for 2014: What’s Going On? – a group exhibition that visually invokes societal consciousness. Co-curated by Kefiloe Siwisa and Tamzin Lovell Miller, the group exhibition includes artworks by Bamanye Ngxale, Benon Lutaaya, Mbongeni Buthelezi, Neill Wright, Neville Petersen, Pierre le Riche, Riaan van Zyl, Robyn Denny, Thonton Kabeya, Mak1one, Skumbuzo Vabaza ,Vivien Kohler and Zyma Amien.
What is going on politically, socio-economically and environmentally is the expansive and bold question which will be innovatively and conceptually explored , expressed and challenged through the mind’s eye of these artists; societies neo-revolutionary activists and journalists who ‘speak’ as the voice of the self and the voice of many.
What is going on? and how does it intimately affect the individual and thus the collective; society. What is it that we are passionately advocating and protesting or quietly observing? This exhibition will bring to the forefront the current issues that are at the core of our society, not only reflecting the present that is but the journey that has been, is becoming and that will become. What’s Going On? aims to invoke the intimate understanding and connection to society that we may have disconnected ourselves from; it will attempt to open up new spaces for active dialogue and internal thought provocation.
The exhibition will open on the 8th February and run until the 4th April 2014. The exhibition programme will also include a curator’s walkabout, and poetry performances. Details on these events will be posted on The Lovell Gallery’s social media platforms and website.
Established in 2009 by Tamzin Lovell Miller, The Lovell Gallery is a cutting edge, fine art gallery committed to the presentation of serious contemporary art of an international standard, in a manner that inspires understanding and appreciation. Interactions are important to us; we encourage dialogue between artists, viewers, collectors and curators.
Love Comes to Visit the Lovell Gallery
Exhibition Open from 8 February- 8 March 2014
A book, a short film, a song and an app – “One Fine Day Love Came to Visit” exhibition
Internationally acclaimed jazz musician, Rus Nerwich, has released a dynamic new offering in the world of children’s literature. “One Fine Day Love Came to Visit” is an interactive app, a short film and song, with an engaging, beautifully illustrated book behind it all.
Appealing to adults with its enduring message, and to children with its colours and musical interactivity, the project is set to launch with an exhibition at Woodstock’s Lovell Gallery, running from 8 February – 8 March.
Beginning at 18:30 on the 8th of February, the exhibition will bring this multi-faceted project to life, reflecting its universal message of the importance of friendship, music and a vibrant imagination. The One Fine Day Love Came to Visit exhibition will be one of the first art exhibits open to children – an excellent way to introduce youth to the world of art and literature.
“This project has spanned 5 years of work from several artists and creators, and we are all excited to see it come to fruition at the Lovell Gallery. What makes this exhibition unique, is that it opens up the usually restrictive gallery world to children – while still allowing parents to enjoy the experience, as the project is broadly appealing to viewers of all ages,” says One Fine Day’s creator, Rus Nerwich.
The exhibition will feature the original, vivid custom artworks created by Canadian-born artist, Amanda Bayda, as well as the book’s interactive and educational iPad app.
The app takes the story into a new media sphere, allowing users to interact with the illustrations and make musical compositions within the pages of the book. This dynamic app also allows children to practise reading, as the “read to me” and “read myself” function lets them listen to a reading, and then record their own reading of the story for playback. The exhibition will feature several iPads running the app, allowing attendees to experience it for themselves.
The artworks, app, short film and song of One Fine Day Love Came to Visit make this project a ground-breaking multi-platform project; incorporating the stimulation of a book with the excitement of multi-platform technology. This dynamism promotes the incorporation of life skills and literacy through the stimulating world of digital play.
All ages are welcome to come and pay love a visit at the Lovell Gallery, 139 Albert Road, Woodstock, from 8 February – 8 March, with the launch event beginning at 18:30 on the 8th of February.
