Exchange and Artists' Choice Award 2017 16 – 21 September
Exchange and Artists' Choice Award 2017
The Awards Evening starting at 6p.m.Thursday 21st September
Join us at artSPACE durban for the sixth of our exciting art exchange exhibitions. This is an artist-orientated event. We have fun and pay tribute to ourselves as artists. With most awards, the decision is made by a panel of judges and often strangely influenced and rather baffling, but with our Artists’ Choice Award, only the participating artists can vote for the best work on show. We believe this gives a respectful ear to our artists so their voices and choices can be heard.
How it works:
Each participating artist will pay an entry fee and collect a 30 x 30 cm canvas (1 per person) from the gallery. Other media are welcome, but are required to fit into the size criteria and needs to be able to be and ready to be hung.
The exhibition will open at artSPACE durban on Saturday, 16th September and it is up for 1 week. Voting will close at 4pm on the 21st September with the Awards Evening starting at 6p.m.
The Theme: ‘Border(s)’
In terms of definition, the obvious one is the border between two countries, but could also be the border to the edge of a space or knowledge. It is also used in textile as a strip or even in a social context as in “bordering on an insult”.
