NO LONGER AT THIS ADDRESS (article first published : 2007-09-24)

The Durban Art Gallery will host an exhibition about the name changes to many of the city’s streets and building. Titled No Longer at this Address: Navigating a post-Apartheid identity in South Africa, the exhibition is curated by Brenton Mart from the KZNSA and researched by writer/author Peter Machen. There are two areas of focus: anecdotal and documentary.

Five street photographers working with the Imvunge Street Photographers network will be shooting moments and images of eight of the streets and two of the buildings which are in the process of having their names changed. This interactive personal journey of images will explore what it means for a city to be evolving and embracing change.

The exhibition will also look at where the names of streets and buildings come from, looking at the people they are named after and their achievements and heritage and comparing the old to the new.

No Longer at this Address opens on September 28. The Durban Art Gallery is situated in the Durban City Hall (entrance in Smith Street). There are wheelchair facilities. The gallery is open seven days a week, entry is free and all are welcome.
