Located in the heart of the City Bowl, Alliance Française du Cap is a French school and cultural centre. It aims at sharing French language and cultures, and supporting local up-and-coming talents.
In August, Alliance Française du Cap is proud to host a group exhibition: Done to Death, curated by Kobie Nieuwoudt.
Done to Death is a group exhibition aiming at exploring originality, repetition and reinvention in a rapidly-evolving visual culture. In a sense, every work of art can be seen as a continuation of a collective story.
Just how original can a work of art be? When you consider the visual influences that bombard us on a daily basis, it is clear that originality in art and design is a spectre, a ghost. Is anything truly original, one can easily question if originality exists. What we should look for is unique adaptations, individual responses to ideas that have been expressed visually in one form or the other for centuries. So, by now, what hasn't been done to death?
Done to Death will open on Thursday 2 August 2018 at 18:00
