CELEBRATION (article first published : 1999-04-11)

The Durban Art Gallery is hosting works of selected KZN artists in The Right to Celebrate which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Offering works which vary from the disturbing and challenging to the poignant and sensitive, the exhibition should be both interesting and thought-provoking.

Cultural Weapon: Instrument of Worship by Michael Matthews contains threatening-looking objects wrapped in black rubber while hanging "trophies" support items such as a megaphone and a radio.

HUMOUR

There are many works with refreshing touches of humour.

One of the most delightful pieces is Nhlanhla Ben Nsusha's dancing maskanda musician with his wife behind him carrying baby, suitcase and packets.

Other artists represented are Gavin Anderson, Michelle Coetzee, Dina Cormick, Izidro Duarte, Clement Dube, Carol-Anne Gainer, Faiza Galdari, Christina Jikelo, Corina Lemmer, Joseph Manana, Trevor Makhoba, Roxana Mills, Virginia Mackenny, Humphrey Modibedi, Jabulani Mhlabini, Vusi Langa, Raison Naidoo, Khehla Ngobese, Vulindlela Nyoni, Musa Ngcobo, Ben Nsusha, Wilis Nxumalo, Paulina Shabalala, Innocent Thamsanqa, Vincent Tshulupi, Andrew Verster, Mduduzi Xakaza and Sicelo Ziqubu.

CATALOGUE

An attractive and highly informative catalogue accompanies the exhibition. The exhibition notes are by art lecturer Juliette Leeb-du Toit and the foreword was written by art historian Sabine Marschall who put the exhibition together with artists John Roome and Brendon Bussy.

The exhibition runs until April 18.
