Vad du kommer att göra
I'll take you on a rollicking tour of some of the most interesting and important art galleries in Johannesburg's "art mile", in an area called Rosebank. We'll meet outside the restaurant La Cucina di Ciro in Parktown North, from which we'll start our walk to our first gallery. On the way, I'll tell you a bit about the art scene in South Africa -both its history and the present. Then we'll quit the history lesson and we'll visit at least 5-6 galleries and spaces together, partly by foot and partly by car. I'll give you a brief introduction to each space and to the exhibitions on show, and will be able to provide you with more in-depth information if you're interested! *Johannesburg is quite a sprawled out city, so we will have to take a car trip here or there. We will travel by Uber. *Tours will take place during the day, in gallery opening hours, or in the evenings on First Thursdays. This is the first Thursday of every month in which many galleries stay open into the evening and hold special events. Fun!
I am a curator and art critic with over ten years experience in the South African and international art scene. I have a wealth of knowledge of, and a love for, the contemporary art scene in Johannesburg. After working as an arts journalist for leading local newspapers, I worked for the South African National Gallery as Curator of Contemporary Art, and then moved to New York City to take up a PhD fellowship at Columbia University. I then worked as director of Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen, Norway, for 3.5 years, and have recently moved back to my hometown, Johannesburg.
I'll bring some local snacks for you to try while we're en route. Please let me know of any dietary requirements.
I'll be your driver, or we'll take an Uber (at no additional cost)
