ART DECO WEEK (article first published : 2003-02-16)

Representatives from the International coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS) will be in South Africa during March/April 2003, to attend the 7th World Congress on Art Deco.

While the congress itself takes place in Cape Town, Durban will host a Post Congress meeting from March 30 to April 3, 2003. Delegates from the United States, New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom are expected to attend.

“Our city has a rich Art Deco heritage and, in a recently completed study by students from the school of Architecture, Planning and Housing at the University of Natal, 80 quality Art Deco buildings were identified within its confines,” said KZN president of the Art Deco Society, Jean Powell.

“Our programme includes daily lectures and site tours to local buildings, many of which are internationally recognised” Powell added.

Other events planned are a reception featuring an Afro Décor Fashion show devised by textile students, an exhibition of Art Deco paintings and objects at the Durban Art gallery and an exhibition of Art Deco photographs, drawings and Deco-Moderne objects at the NSA gallery, and the organisation’s adjacent KZN headquarters in Bulwer Road.

More information from Jean on 031 266 3082 or Helen Labuschagne on 031 301 1951, e-mail info@durbandeco.org or visit the society’s website at www.durbandeco.org
