RED EYE IGNITES! (article first published : 2003-11-30)

The final Red Eye @rt event of 2003 is just around the corner and this time Durban's premier arts event kicks off the festive season with a bang. Red Eye has joined forces with the iTrump urban renewal project and will be painting the town red this Christmas with another awesome party which begins in the gallery before taking to the streets and parks of central Durban.

Artists and performers will showcase spectacular light sculptures and multi-media displays specially commissioned for the event and curated by Storm Van Rensburg of the NSA gallery.

Among those taking part will be Milijana Babic, Thando Mama, Jan-Henri Booyens, Dean Henning, Rike Sitas, Andrew Verster, Marklyn Govender, Clint Singh and Clive van den Berg (recently appointed the curator of the prestigious Brett Kebble Art Awards 2004)

True to tradition, Red Eye will start at the Durban Art Gallery where the audience can expect a fantastic line-up before moving on to the streets. The various galleries will play host to Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre and other companies curated by Jay Pather, Standard Bank Young Artist for 2003 Berni Searle, the I-TRUMP City Renewal exhibition, a video screening of Peet Pienaar's controversial Circumcision performance earlier this year, fabulously funky fashion from Linea Academy,.DJ's and lots, lots more!

“We're also in the process of putting together a Red Eye Retrospective photo exhibition covering the past five years of Red Eye's colourful history - a definite must see!,” says Carol Brown, Director of the Durban Art Gallery.

“But it doesn't stop there - from the gallery the party moves round to West street and Medwood Gardens which used to be the central city oasis with its swimming pool and fountain and will get a new life after dark when Red Eye promises to ignite the area with a spectacular line-up of art, music and entertainment for everyone. If you missed the last one then this is your chance to catch-up!” adds Carol.

Red Eye @rt takes place on December 12 from 18h30 till late at the Durban Art Gallery and Medwood Gardens. Cover charge is R20 (R15 students with valid student cards).
