'In [the] Loop' - Group Exhibition
Collection: 'In [the] Loop' - Group Exhibition
04.02.21 - 05.03.21
Our first exhibition of 2021 in Loop Street focuses on new artworks by 11 exceptional artists. Many of the artists in this Summer Exhibition would normally have been included in our booths at the Investec Cape Town Art Fair, usually scheduled to take place around mid-February. Whilst most Art Fairs have been delayed until later in 2021, artists keep creating and still need opportunities to exhibit to a physical audience as much as possible.
‘In [the] Loop’ will include, amongst others, Kelechi Nwaneri’s ‘Can't Let Go’. Artsy highlighted Kelechi in November 2020 as one of 15 artists “on the rise” from the continent. We will also be showing pieces by John Newdigate and Zemba Luzamba, both of whom have achieved notable auction records for contemporary artists on the continent in the past 6 months. Aviwe Plaatjie’s magnificent ‘Sithi Aba’ is a precursor to his highly anticipated solo exhibition at EBONY/CURATED in May 2021.
We are also delighted to be releasing a new embroidered panel entitled ‘Solitude III’ by Kimathi Mafafo, another artist recently highlighted by Artsy in “Trends to Watch” in 2021. Following a sold-out solo exhibition in 2020 and recent exhibits in Paris and Munich, Hugh Byrne gives us ‘Fluster’ - another radical experiment in painting, highlighting the artist’s continued investigation into structure and colour.
