We are proud that three of our graduates have been included in Greatest Hits- an exhibition curated by the AVA gallery director, Mirjam Asmal.
From the invitation:
“This year, work was selected from graduate shows at Michaelis School of Fine Art and Ruth Prowse School of Art. Part of the exhibition will be on view at the Vault at the Silo Hotel. Greatest Hits have emerged as a means of closing the chasm that exists for art students between tertiary education and professional exhibition exposure, and it serves as a launchpad for new talent for AVA audiences, too.
It is the curator's eye on art instead of the academic's, selecting works on grounds of individual value and their rapport with other selected works. The end result is an exhibition that offers an overview of the local and broader discourses that run through art schools in the Western Cape at the moment.”
Congratualtion to Ruth Prowse School of Art graduates Caitlin Hendricks, Nkhuwemi Kumwenda and Karen Elkington.
