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.
KWAAI, this year’s summer exhibition at Eclectica Galleries, curated by Christina Fortune & featuring: Mikhailia Petersen, Kirsten Arendse, Joshua Williams, Scott Eric Williams, Rory Emmett, QUEEZY, Danielle Alexander, Matthew Wareley, Stephané Conradie, Gary Frier, Hasan Essop, Husein Essop and Dion Cupido, seeks to explore the question of “colouredness”.
The purpose of the exhibition is not to provide any answers, but to open a conversation and celebration around ideas of the coloured identity and the lived experiences of those who carry it. It will attempt to shine a light on the continued hardships faced by coloured people as a consequence of Apartheid, and simultaneously contribute positively to the coloured community.
