RECKONING: An Art Bank of South Africa Exhibition

Corner 5th Street and 6th Avenue, Springs

The Art Bank of South Africa has collaborated with the Springs Art Gallery (SAG) on the “RECKONING” – An Art Bank of South Africa Exhibition. This group art exhibition features original work of emerging artists from across the country, who use both conventional and unconventional materials to challenge the limits of these media – painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, and printmaking – and various styles and subject matters. 

Society has possibly never sought certainty as much as it does now. During the pandemic society collectively held onto the hope of the global shutdowns coming to an end and looked forward to a world forever changed with an optimistic outlook of grand reforms that were long overdue but in need of a catalyst to be realize. Many hoped the pandemic would be that catalyst. For a brighter “new normal”.

Sadly, however we emerged on the other side to a world reckoning with many aspects of society, business and politics overturned. The Art Bank of South Africa’s RECKONING exhibition, by way of visual art, explores identity, heritage, the self and the collective contemporary South Africa plunged into a reckoning around uncomfortable historic truths that not all are willing to face up to and affords the opportunity to reflect on the future implications of the decisions made now, before the day comes when all will have to face some unpleasant truths about the societal fractures that have gone unaddressed.

Join us on Saturday, 26 November 2022, at the Springs Art Gallery in Springs at 12pm for the opening of the exhibition.  The exhibition walkabout details to provide an opportunity to meet the curators and exhibiting artists talking about the exhibition will be made public in due course.

This exhibition will run until Friday, 24 February 2023, and the Art Gallery is open weekdays 9am – 14pm and Saturdays 8am – 12pm for public viewing (closed on public holidays). Admission is free.
