The core of the programme is photographer and festival artist Daniel Naudé’s exhibition Animal Farm, known for his captivating photographs of the indigenous Africanis dog.
Obie Oberholzer’s Long Distance takes the viewer on a journey with his photographs of people and places from all corners of the world. The theme of photography continues with the group exhibitions Friends Sharing Images, the Market Photo Workshop’s Tracing Territories and INK-Complete: Capturing Music II.
Solo exhibitions of Barbara Wildenboer, Clare Menck, Craig Müller, Hanneke Benadé, Paul Cooper and Talita Swarts, working in a variety of media, are also part of the programme. Group exhibitions include SMAC: Collection 17; the 100 finalists of the 2012 Absa L’Atelier; Dismotief – a transgressive, alternative expression of Afrikaner masculinity; Skilder met woorde III: 1 2 3 blok myself!; Totius & Pierneef: Digter en skilder op uitstalling; and the Woordkuns-jeugprojek.
