ART SA FIRST BIRTHDAY (article first published : 2003-09-17)

Art South Africa celebrates a year of high-quality coverage of contemporary South African visual art with the launch of its bumper fifth edition, now on sale nationwide.

Bell-Roberts Publishing is happy to announce that the magazine is going from strength to strength, and will soon be available at a wider range of sales outlets due to the appointment of a new, independent distributor.

The Spring edition features Moshekwa Langa on the cover. Langa describes himself as a transient South African based in Amsterdam, and discusses the effects of living abroad on his work in conversation with critic Tracy Murinik.

Langa is one of three South Africans whose work is included on this year¹s Venice Biennale. This great art exposition comes under scrutiny in a feature by Andrew Lamprecht, who has strong words to say about the “African show” curated for Venice by Gilane Tawadros.

With the opening of Gallery Momo, owned by art consultant and curator Monna wa Mokoena, in Johannesburg, Thembinkosi Goniwe makes an appeal against the practice of racially tagging “black” artists, curators and galleries.

Brett Bailey and his company, Third World Bunfight, also come under the spotlight in a feature by Ashraf Jamal that focuses on the “mysterious, anarchic and unthinkable” at the core of Bailey¹s performance art.

The interface of art and architecture is examined at both the Cape Town Convention Centre and the Faraday Place muti market and healing centre in Johannesburg. Also in the news are updates on the prize circuit, prospects for a biennale-type event in Cape Town and more.

The reviews section covers local and international group exhibitions, as well as solo shows by, among others, Kendell Geers, Terry Kurgan, Alan Alborough, David Koloane, Usha Seejarim, Jeremy Wafer, Sandile Zulu, Hentie van der Merwe, Guy Tillim and Chris Ledochowski.

Art South Africa is available at Exclusive Books and other selected bookstores and galleries countrywide, at a cost of R70 per issue (including VAT).
