WOMEN¹S DAY EXHIBITION: MY LIFE (article first published : 2003-07-31)

The Durban Art Gallery invites female artists to participate in the Women’s Day exhibition. The theme for 2003 is My Life - Reflections of Women’s Experiences. This exhibition is held annually to celebrate Women’s Day and is the fourth exhibition started five years ago by Phumzile Dlamini, Education Officer at the Durban Art Gallery.

“Women in South Africa play many roles: wife, mother, sometimes sole provider - this led us to organise this exhibition which gives women an artistic and creative forum to unite and share knowledge, skills and experiences.” says Phumzile.

The exhibition this year will focus on women¹s issues and experiences such as rape, sexual harassment, domestic violence and HIV/Aids. Their exclusion as well as their contribution to nation building through artistic entrepreneurial activites will be highlighted.

The exhibition will also show the importance of museums in recording, preserving and educating the public about these experiences and activities. It runs at the Durban Art Gallery from August 8 to September 3.

For more information contact Phumzile Dlamini, Pat Khoza, James Makola on 031 3112274/5/6, leave a message on 031 311 2264 or fax 031 311 2272/3.

There will be a guided tour of the exhibition on August 13 at 13h00.
