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.
‘Untitled 7.99’ features the work of young and emerging South African artists. Representing an assemblage of styles, the featured artists find commonality in their exploration of themselves and their surroundings, both social and physical. As most of the artists are new to the gallery, the show is sure to be an exciting exploration of the subtle, the serious, the personal and the poetic.
‘The Light Tank’ is an immersive multisensory work brought to you by interactive designer Goddy Roodt. As a piece that in its core is truly an experience, it transfixes audiences with its playful and purposeful interaction of sound and light. It is one that is not to be missed.
Please note that the gallery will have extended viewing hours for the duration of this show. The Light Tank will be open for viewing from 3 PM until 6:30 PM in the evenings.
‘Supermoon’ is Vuuren’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. On display will be the artist’s most recent series of paintings which gather source material from all manner of media, popular culture and visual imagery.
In his work, Vuuren creates the unexpected out of the ordinary by breaking and building upon original images in order to create post-contemporary pieces imbued with 'charged fragments'. The show will be characterised by a colourful exploration of image construction.
