With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to present a carefully selected and focused collection of art from the continent that interrogates the issues facing us in a globalized world. The art at Eclectica often shows practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Eclectica Contemporary sees itself as an African gallery with an international vision. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize this for a growing global market.
Our program of exhibitions shows a mix of solo shows by gallery artists alongside curated group shows. In addition, the Eclectica Contemporary exhibition space has facilities for experimental, new media and project-based works.
The pull the edge of a thread. To unravel the cloth. To grab hold of something and walk with the eventuality it leads towards. Or away from.
The Edge of a Thread exhibition is a group show that wraps itself around and through any and all mediums, with artists weaving and winding through their own practice, stitched together with cement, pixels, fragments, leaves and pigments within the Eclectica Contemporary gallery space.
