ARTTHROB (article first published : 2005-03-19)

Since its inception in 1997 ArtThrob has been, without a doubt, the definitive source of contemporary art information in South Africa.

This month a CD-Rom was released covering the profiles of about 50 artists, as well as hundreds of reviews, coverage of major art events that have happened during the period 1998 -2003.

The CD-Rom was designed by Tracy Gander and is a must for everyone interested in the local art scene.

It also gives listings of all major exhibitions held in Gauteng, Cape and KZN during that time.

Most importantly, there are two overviews of South African visual art history titled South African art in the 1990ís followed by an update of the years 2000-2003.These informative articles were written by Sue Williamson and originally published in eight parts starting in January 2000. Written week by week as a personal assessment of the past decade, it appears on the CD with minor changes. These articles alone are worth buying the CD.

The CD is a must for universities, art colleges, art students and high school learners doing art as a subject. The price is R200 and itís worth every cent. Available from Helco promotions on 021 462 2302 or email helco@mweb.co.za - Marianne Meijer
