SALON I
ANN-MARIE TULLY AND ANDREA ROLFES

12 to 15 July 2014

SALON I


SALON I is the pilot exhibition of a pop-up 19th century-style salon concept curated by Ann-Marie Tully and Andrea Rolfes, bringing together select groupings of emerging and established South African artists.

VENUE:
Upstairs@Bamboo | Corner 9th Street & Rustenburg Road, Melville, Johannesburg
DATES:
Preview Friday 11 July 2014 | Opening Saturday 12 July |
View daily between 10:00am and 16:00pm.
Exhibition closes at 14h00 on Wednesday 15 July.

This exhibition which represents an artist-led and artist-centred premise revives the pre-white-cube experience of viewing art in tight knit groupings that prize the value of every inch of an exhibition venue, and present each work in dialogue and tension with other work (thematically and/or aesthetically).

HISTORY OF THE TERM 'SALON': From 1725 the offcial art exhibitions organised by the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and its successor the Academy of Fine Art were held in the room called the Salon Carré in the Louvre, which became known simply as 'The Salon'. This gave rise to the generic French term of 'salon' for any large mixed art exhibition. By the mid nineteenth century the academies had become highly conservative, and through their monopoly over major exhibitions resisted the rising tide of innovation in naturalism, realism, impressionism and their successors. By about 1860 the number of artists being excluded from the offcial salon became so great and such a scandal that in 1863 the government (led by Napoleon III) was forced to set up an alternative, to accommodate the 'refused artists'. This became known as the 'Salon de Refusés'. The exhibition's major sensations were two paintings by Édouard Manet (1832-1883), each considered scandalous - Déjeuner sur l'herbe [Luncheon on the Grass], for portraying nude and clothed together in a scene of everyday life, and Olympia, for portraying the nude figure of a known prostitute, whose form was not typical of those considered ideal. Other exhibitors were Claude Monet (1840-1926), Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), and James A. M. Whistler (1834-1903). Three further Salons des Refusés were held in 1874, 1875 and 1886. This phenomenon was pivotal to the development of western art in the 20th century.

The western lens of this historical phenomena notwithstanding, the considerable control of the gallery system in South Africa is also cause for concern on a number of levels including the monopolisation of the circulation of artistic products, the visibility of artists and their products, and the restriction of artistic freedoms. The concept of artist-centred 'salons' responds to this dilemma (while not eschewing the important role of galleries in the South African art market).

Fiona Couldridge
Solo Exhibition

19-27 July 2014

Fiona CouldridgeFiona Couldridge


Fiona Couldridge presents her fourth solo exhibition, a series of oil paintings entitled “Esoptra”, worked from images of foetal scans, newborns and infant mummies. Each painting presents either a single or twinned subject. The artist is interested in in-between, existing, yet un-existing subliminal realms. “Esoptra” refers to ancient darkened mirrors, or lenses that provided darkened and distorted views of reality, providing a philosophical platform upon which reality is viewed. The unborn, unnamed and unformed subjects suggest a state before language, self, understanding and sense. In their transitional, amorphous, “un-existing” state, the foetuses become objects of unfulfilled desire, expectation and projection. The paintings are evocative of birth, violence and mortality; they confront us with the hideousness and pathos of our existence, real and illusory.

Black Coffee

Black Coffee

The key to the Black Coffee aesthetic is a combination of two polar opposites. The first is innovative thinking and inspirational conceptual beliefs on what it means to be South Afrian - particularly an Afrikaner with a rich heritage. Black Coffee has a quirky, deep and thoughtful approach to couture, to globalism and to a new African visual identity. To contrast with his fresh innovative design concepts, Jacques executes his process with meticulous attention to detail and a very traditional craft-like approach to the manufacture of Black Coffee couture.

Child in play - don't disturb

Playtime is probably the most important activity in a child's development. When you find children at play there should be a sign 'Don't disturb'. This is when children are learning through play - the cognitive advancement, socialisation and interaction is formed. Play promotes flexibility of the mind and is recreation and relaxation at the same time. Good, meaningful toys encourage your child to learn through play.

Toys for all ages 0 - 99 at Childsplay, Kinderspiel's new outlet at Bamboo Centre, Rustenburg Rd/Cr. Carlow bridge/Westcliff Drive, opening hrs: Monday to Friday 8.30 till 5 and Weekends 9 till 4.
