INQOLOBANE (article first published : 2008-02-23)

The DUT Art Gallery has announced its next show, Inqolobane (direct English translation Silo) subtitled preserving the future which is based on the presentation of the University of Technology's permanent collection that has been collected for over 25 years.

Showing recently acquired works, this exhibition will be rotating old and new works. This invaluable collection consists of anonymous carvings, clay pots, beadwork, wooden and bronze sculptures, contemporary paintings, mixed media and new media art of installations.

The collection has become a historical reference that encompasses cultural diversity whilst encouraging continuity in research, teaching and promotion of the visual arts within the student body and society at large. The collection continues to grow through donations and purchases that have relevance to current commentary. The DUT Gallery is the University's cultural base that is dedicated to collecting, documenting and conserving art. Since 1982, the gallery has collected current and historical art that includes ancient and modern artefacts.

Recent acquisition includes works by the following artists: Bronwen Lace (bell shaped curve), Nkosinathi Gumede (untitled series of paintings from his last Durban solo exhibition at the African Art Centre), Simphiwe Cele (photographs 365 degrees of still spaces) and the women for Children Print Portfolio which consists of 52 national and international artists. Also shown will be print portfolios of the international print exchange programme that has not been shown to the public before.

Inqolobane (preserving the future) runs at the DUT Gallery from February 28 to April 25. For more information visit the University's website or call 031 373 2207 or e-mail: artgallery@dut.ac.za

The art gallery is located at the Steve Biko Campus, Cecil Renaud Theatre, entrance access gate 2 Mansfield Road. The gallery is open five days a week. Mondays to Thursdays 08h30 to 16h30 (Fridays to 15h00).
