DUT FINE ART STAFF EXHIBITION (article first published : 2006-09-12)

The DUT Gallery is hosting an exhibition of works by lecturers from the Fine Art Department, Durban University of Technology. The fine art lecturers regularly exhibit as part of their research. John Roome, the Head of the Department, says 'through our own practice, we can lead by example".

Participating in this exhibition are Andries Botha, Greg Bye, Camilla Copley, Jan Jordaan, Nkosinathi Khanyile, Royal Gwala, John Roome, Themba Shibase, Tony Starkey, Hennie Stroebel, Barry Truter, Bronwen Vaughan-Evans, and Nirmi Ziegler.

The show encompasses an exploration of both old and new visual vocabularies as some participants in this exhibition have been practising artists for quite some time, whereas others have recently made their name in the art industry. A variety of ideas are presented in one space. The artists are from different backgrounds bringing together different artistic skills. Traditional visual languages are juxtaposed with more contemporary media. These artists explore notions of identity, aesthetics, geographical location and human relationships.

The DUT Fine Art Staff exhibition runs until September 22 in the DUT Gallery in Mansfield Road.
