Bag Factory: Reflections
27 May - 23 June 2023
Bag Factory Artists’ Studios is pleased to present Bag Factory: Reflections - a new group exhibition comprised of photography, video, painting, printmaking and mixed media artworks.
The exhibition is focused on celebrating the work of dynamic visiting artists who have joined the Bag Factory family within the past five years through our awards or residencies. The title of this exhibition speaks to the idea of reflecting whilst simultaneously appreciating where the artists are currently and looking forward as a community. Even as these artists have made strides in their professional careers since being at Bag Factory, this return to the yellow roller doors fortifies that we are always with them on their journeys.
Bag Factory: Reflections offers us a unique opportunity to pause and meditate on this five-year mark in the Bag Factory’s 32-year history. The exhibition recognises the perseverance, commitment to create, and the growth these artists have undergone, especially through a turbulent time in the world’s history. The exhibition spotlights the progress of participating artists by showcasing their newer works created between 2022 and 2023.
The exhibition features the artworks of the following artists:
Mpumelelo Buthelezi, Alka Dass, Mahube Diseko, Kay-Leigh Fisher, Erla Haraldsdóttir, Ronél de Jager, Thonton Kabeya, Hemali Khoosal, Lebogang Mogul Mabusela, Bulumko Mbete, Brian Montshiwa, DuduBloom More, Boitmelo Motau, Nadia Myburgh, Richard ‘Specs’ Ndimande, Usen Obot, Levy Pooe, Henrietta Scholtz, Joe Turpin and Helena Uambembe.
The exhibition was made possible with a funding grant from Mzansi Golden Economy Projects by the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, Republic of South Africa and some of our light beverages are sponsored by FourtyFour Premium Lager
