ROSE KORBER'S - 19TH ART SALON

Cape Town has hosted many original and exciting events during the year, and for art lovers, the annual ART SALON, curated by noted art dealer and consultant Rose Korber, this exhibition adds to the cultural highlights for the festive season. An innovation, this year will be the inclusion of the 'Salon des Confus├ęs' - a 'salon within a salon’ - presented by the much sought-after Cape Town curator and art theorist, Andrew Lamprecht. The salon opens on Thursday 16 December 2010 until 17 January 2011 at Rose Korber Art, 48 Sedgemoor Road, Camps Bay, Cape Town. Gallery hours are 10 am to 6 pm daily, including weekends and public holidays.

Two performances have been commissioned by Lamprecht for the opening on the 16 December at 12 noon and 3pm. It includes Gerald Machona's bittersweet reflection on the relations between Zimbabwe and South Africa. Angelique Kendall will explore the limits to which artists are prepared to push their physical boundaries in an endurance performance. There is no admission fee.

On Saturday 18th December at 11am Andrew will do a ‘Walkabout’ of the exhibition. Entrance is free, but booking is essential. Contact Rose Korber or Valerie Botha on 021 438 9152 or e-mail roskorb@icon.co.za.

Since its inception in 1992, the Art Salon has been a major enterprise, bringing together - under one roof - a large showcase of quality artworks in various media and styles: paintings, mixed-media works, original limited-edition prints, photography, ceramics, sculpture and contemporary Shangaan beadwork.

The aim this year is to present a comprehensive and diverse overview of the current state of South African art. Artists include much acclaimed, William Kentridge, Willie Bester, Sam Nhlengethwa, Simon Stone, Richard Smith, Robert Slingsby, Stephen Inggs, Deborah Bell, Diane Victor, Claudette Schreuders, Wendy Anziska, Pamela Stretton and Gerald Tabata.

Amongst the leading ceramic artists exhibiting are Louise Gelderblom, Hennie Meyer, Clementina van der Walt, Carolyn Heydenrych, Laura du Toit, Wiebke von Bismarck, Ralph Johnson, Kendall Warren and Melanie Hillebrand; while sculpture is well represented with works by Willie Bester, Norman Catherine, Kevin Brand and Jaco Sieberhagen.

Andrew Lamprecht will present a mix of younger, emerging artists, such as Georgina Gratrix, Stuart Bird, Ian Grose, Unathi Sigenu, ceramicist William Martin, and photographer Rose Kotze, alongside some well-known names - with a focus on the 'unusual, unexpected and surprising’.
