Local artist Tyrone Appollis’ new exhibition, My New Immediacy, will be on display at UCT’s Irma Stern Museum from 16 April to 7 May 2016.
“My New Immediacy is right here at my feet,” says Appollis. “I’m still obsessed with South Africa and think it will so remain. I can’t think of any other place than home that has given me so much victory, tribulation and urgency. And I am extremely grateful for the spirit of our local and international giant artists in no order of importance: Sekoto and Skotnes, the hectic Dumile Feni and Jackson Hlungwani, whom I salute wholeheartedly.”
Political cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro will speak at the launch, which takes place on 16 April at 11h00.
Appollis is known for building a monument to commemorate the three children killed by apartheid police in the 1985 Trojan Horse Massacre in Athlone, Cape Town. The monument stands in Thornton Road, where the killings took place.
