Priest is a hybridized, off-kilter and progressive gallery run by artists for artists. Whilst the zeitgeist leans ever more into the tainted touch of commercialism and consumption Priest desires more nuance, deviation, experiment and serious play, the virtues of art as we understand it.
Rethinking Boundaries is brought to you in collaboration with ArtEC, a community arts centre based in Port Elizabeth. The exhibition project was initiated to provide artists from this marginalised province an opportunity to exhibit alongside more established and experienced artists and, furthermore, to travel the exhibition to one of the national centres of artistic activity.
The curatorial motive, ‘Rethinking Boundaries’, aimed to provide a selection of young artists with the opportunity to engage with their national and individual ideologies and identities as a perpetually renewed question; ‘rethinking boundaries’ concerning gender, geographical and ideological ‘spaces’, social climate, community, language, memory, conflict and estrangement within a national and global context. 20 years after a hard-won democracy was established in South Africa, the question of taking stock and critically evaluating the context of this paradigmatic shift has not lost its relevance and has in fact become more crucial than ever to call the narratives of the “Rainbow nation” into question. To rethink the boundaries created by one or another arch-ideology stresses the agency of the individual, their ability to bring their own creative capacities and analytical skills into a tension and dialogue with the prescribed order of ‘things’.
