FNB VITA ART PRIZE (article first published : 2001-05-2)

The FNB Vita Art Prize 2001 nominees were announced at a function held at the NSA Galleries recently. As part of the expansion of the FNB Vita projects, the FNB Vita Art Prize exhibition makes a move from the Sandton Civic Gallery to the NSA in Durban.

Among the six nominees are Clive van den Berg and Kathryn Smith, formerly of Durban.

Clive van den Berg was nominated for an exhibition that featured new multimedia works at the Goodman Gallery last year. Born in Kitwe, Zambia, he studied for a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the University of Natal. After lecturing in Durban for several years at the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg and at Technikon Natal, he joined the Fine Arts Department at the University of the Witwatersrand in 1989. Van Den Berg has been exhibiting both locally and internationally for many years, and is currently the Visual Arts co-ordinator for the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, amongst others.

Born in Durban, Kathryn Smith relocated to Johannesburg in 1994 and completed her MA (FA) in 1999 at Wits University. She currently works as an independent artist and writer. Career highlights thus far include travelling to Iceland for A.R.E.A 2000 (Museum of Art, Reykjavik). She exhibited and was the key-note speaker for the open-circuit exhibition and conference at the NSA Gallery in 2000.

Other nominees are Johannesburg-based Kim Lieberman for her exhibition Blood Relatives; Jan van der Merwe from Pretoria for his work Weft And Warf ; Moshekwa Langa, currently based in the Netherlands, for his exhibition held at the Goodman Gallery and Robin Rhode, graduate of the Technikon Witwatersrand, who works extensively with video and performance art.

The FNB Vita Art Prize exhibition 2001 will open at the NSA Galleries on August 7 when the winning artists will receive R35,000.
