|The Bag Factory Artists’ Studios presents NO RULES APPLY 2.0.
This is an opportunity for artists and audience members to take over the Bag Factory gallery. NO RULES APPLY 2.0 questions who is “the artist” and why only some works are ever seen by the public by focusing on the production of work.
NO RULES APPLY 2.0 is a platform for audiences and artists to collaborate in a broader sense and explore their own creative freedom within a gallery space. Though the Bag Factory is not a commercial gallery we are making our gallery space available for anyone who is keen to take over and create something new on the walls.
How does it work?
Food and drinks will be available for sale on the day and are outside of the ticket price.
|Price R45 pp

The OR Tambo Cultural Precinct (the Precinct) in Ekurheleni has been established and constructed to preserve the legacy of Oliver Reginald Tambo by the government of South Africa to acknowledge his great contribution of freedom for the people of South Africa. The Precinct is a proudly Ekurhuleni initiative that represents the city’s support of its citizens, a flagship tourism destination and museum to house important history for generations to come. It was opened in October 2012 by then deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe.
The Bag Factory is proud to be working with the OR Tambo Cultural Precinct on artists’ residencies and children’s workshops. The aim of the programmes is to help to built an arts presence in Ekurhuleni. The selected artists for this project are Usha Seejarim and Neo Matloga.
