99 Loop shines a spotlight on a wide range of top emerging and established artistic talent from South Africa. On the corner of Loop and Church Streets, 99 Loop joins a number of other established and brand-new galleries on the same stretch, offering visitors a reason to linger and explore.
The classic 1800s façade conceals a warm, modern interior housing a revolving series of solo and group exhibitions of African art: paintings, sculpture & photography. 99 Loop’s sunlit ground floor is a space for more playful installation work. A new wing, designed by the team from Rennie Scurr Adendorff (who refurbished the Fugard Theatre in District Six), adds to the Gallery’s contemporary appeal, with over 100m2 of exhibition space, as well as a reading area and treed courtyard.
'Undemolished' presents Richard Ketley's new series of artworks made from damaged doors collected from demolition sites. The abstract works reflect upon the chaotic energy and memory of conflict. Ultimately, Ketley aims to reframe these troubled surfaces and breathe new life into the pieces.
The author Rebecca Solnit once described blue as the color of the edges of the world; the mountains far away, the deep sea and the sky above us. The color of longing, of distance. Of what is not quite here. In the midst of the strangeness that has clouded the past year and a half, seeped into every corner of our lives and stained them, I felt I had arrived in this place of blueness. A fleeting moment where the world seemed suspended, and what was before and what was to come after was veiled and out of touch. And feeling blue was neither just sadness, nor serene. It was the dirty muddy riverbank water, and dark thunderstorms filled with rain. Splashes of orange and the smell of green in spring. It was a thousand different hues. - Oda Tungodden
