Future Foundations, 2016
Title: Future Foundations, 2016
In collaboration with The Operator Studio, National Lotteries Commission, Dragon Tree and Creative Feel.
For 25 years the Bag Factory Artists’ Studios has been more than just a building and studio space. It has provided the foundation of many an artist’s career. Built out of the dream for artists from different backgrounds to be able to work together, the Bag Factory is a community that continuously supports and builds on its ethos of “the community studio space where artists practice is held in the highest regard and experimentation is encouraged.”
Over 25 years these foundations have been strengthened by the artists and staff who have poured their passion and efforts into the community and ethos of the space. In recent years the Bag Factory has worked hard to encourage a younger community of artists to engage in our programming ensuring that the life-blood of the space – interaction and development – continues to pump. The community has played host to artists such as Helen Sebidi, Deborah Bell,
Sam Nhlengethwa, Penny Siopsis, Benon Lutaaya, Blessing Ngobeni, Neo Matloga, Dinkies Sithole, Kay Hassan and many, many more.
We have created an international following through our visiting artists programme and a consistent space for art loving members of the public to experience outstanding work.
