A-fares of the art

10 April 2012

Prof Gavin YoungeUCT's Prof Gavin Younge has a full schedule these days. Firstly he's been called on to curate a new showcase, art-a-fares. A venture by non-profit initiative Youngblood Arts and Culture Development, art-a-fares will give new talent a platform to exhibit their work to the public and gallerists.

Every second Saturday, since 24 March, the artists - from the fresh-out-of-art-school to the older but not yet established - will display and sell their works in the part-gallery, part-restaurant Beautifull Life building in Bree Street, Cape Town.

Apart from assisting with art-a-fares, Younge will be curating exhibitions of artwork drawn from Mozambique and Angola. That project involves the Mozambican musician Neo Muyanga and the co-operation of Mozambican cultural authorities. Seen as a "dialogue", the exhibition of Mozambican work will be followed by an exhibition of South African art in Maputo.
