Moad in Maboneng is currently exhibiting #ULTRACONTEMPORARY#EMERGENCYART#AFRICA in collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Culture until 24 June, and it’s been described as one of a kind.
“I think people are taking well to it and they like the idea because they find it quite different and unique.” said Pascale Aljure, spokesperson for the museum.
This exhibition looks at art and design in a different way, where each body of work is created on the day that it is exhibited and the public is invited to engage with the artists every day from 2pm to 3.30pm.
Before the arrival of a new day’s set of work, the current exhibitions are put on display at the Delay Museum and are available for viewing until 31 July.
One of the more interesting pieces to date was a video installation and performance by a young female artist who had been a victim of rape. As part of her installation, the artist threw sexy lingerie across the room and spoke to audiences about rape from both a political and personal perspective.
Some of the other burning issues to have surfaced in the exhibition is that of race and the plight faced by refugees.
The exhibit forms part of the Emergency Room family of works which have been shown in 10 countries thus far.
“We’re looking forward to the 16 June because it’s Youth Day and it’s a national holiday and we’d like to see international and national artists touch base on what it means,” said Aljure about their excitement for the upcoming topic of the 40-year-old public holiday.
Hipsters, art lovers and the general public are all encouraged to view the works and engage with the artists and designers at Moad during the #ULTRACONTEMPORARY#EMERGENCYART#AFRICA exhibition until 24 June, and on display at Delay Museum until 31 July.
