This event (Chocnology Exhibition) ended on 10th November 2013. Here's something else you might like to do instead.
The Reading Room (Exhibition)
12 April 18 - 22 June 18, Goethe-Institut

The Reading Room is a place for contemplation, conversation, screenings, small-scale events, and reading. In this room and the workshop adjacent to it, a group of artists will respond to another's work over a period of 12 weeks. The starting point for this engagement is the series of portrait paintings entitled Heroes (by Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi). The series is an ongoing inquiry into the subjective nature of the term 'hero': What is a hero? Do we need and therefore create our heroes? Who gets memorialised and who is forgotten? Alphabet Zoo (artists Minenkulu Ngoyi and Isaac Zavale) will initiate a series of workshops in which artists respond to Nkosi's portraits in various forms, creating new readings of the work. Participating artists include Andile Buka, Simnikiwe Buhlungu, Mooki Mooks, Kgomutso Neto Tleane, Jack Diamond, and the Danger Gevaar Ingozi collective. Visitors to The Reading Room are invited to observe the development of the space over the project period. Visitors will also be invited to engage directly with the artists' processes- including opportunities to participate in a programme of workshops and public events. The idea is that what is generated in the space will build on the narratives already present, and populate The Reading Room with a multiplicity of voices. The project will culminate in a final exhibition in week 12 (June 28) featuring artwork and other responses generated over the weeks. Coming up: Week 1 at The Reading Room We'll be kicking off the project with the first workshop and the opening of the space to the public. We'll be open from April 5 and our first public event will be on April 12 at 18:30. Pictured: Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi: Mbulu (after Letta Mbulu), 2017. Oil on canvas, 50x50 cm. see www.goethe.de/joburg
