Current Art Exhibitions in the Parks & CBD Galleries

Wilma Cruise’ s exhibition The Alice Diaries shows at Circa until 25th August.  Exploring the liminal space between animals and humans, Cruise draws on texts from Alice in Wonderland and Alice through the  Looking Glass.  Across the road at Circa’s sister gallery, Everard Read Southern Guild showcases design ideas of some of South Africa’s most prestigious artists as well as up- and-coming ones.   At the Goodman Gallery until 18th August is Kendall Geers’ Songs of Innocence and of Experience and across the road at Artspace is Pat Sithole’s show Reality, on until 29th August.  While you are here pop in to Kim Sacks Gallery as well as to David Krut.  They are always worth a visit.

At the Wits Art Museum with its catchy acronym title of WAM is the stunning premiere show Seeing Stars.  MAKE SURE you see this before it closes on 19th Aug. It includes some of the best pieces of this amazing collection. Can’t wait for the next show.

Across Melville way Jennifer Hallowes’  My Heart Beats to the Rhythm of a Cowhide Drum opens at Upstairs@Bamboo on 13th August.  You can catch  Gunther Herbst’s show The Man who wasn’t there at AOP , 44 Stanley Ave until 1st September and further to the south in Jozi CBD is Standard Bank‘s  20th Century Masters – The human figure  which still has another month to go, only closing on the 15th September.

Bracha L. Ettinger’s Lichtenberg Flower and Medusa opens on 13th August at Nirox at Arts on Main . Ettinger is described as ‘a theoretician working at the juncture between feminine sexuality, pyschoanalysis and aesthetics’.  – So guess there’ll be no ‘boats- in- harbour’ and ‘leopards-lying-in trees’ in this body of work!

So lots of variety and interesting exhibitions on offer.
