WAFER FOR THIRD TAXI (article first published : 2001-07-8)

TaXi-003, the third book of the TaXi series on contemporary South African artists at the NSA Galleries was launched recently and focuses on Jeremy Wafer.

Jeremy Wafer – Artists’ book is written and edited by Lola Frost and edited by Brenda Atkinson. The soft cover book is in English/French/Dutch and includes 100 pages with extensive colour.

Each title in the series is published together with an educational supplement compiled by the MTN Art Institute in collaboration with the respective artist and writer for each book. These supplements contain worksheets for students as well as guidelines for teachers and are designed specifically for wide-ranging subject integration in senior school curricula, but are adaptable for informal art training as well as tertiary institutions.

Teachers and learners who are interested in music, drama, life orientation and human and social studies will find the worksheets helpful and through a learner-based approach to art teaching, draw on their own resources of imagination and experience. Conceptual and practical projects give learners the opportunity to develop their own critical thinking, visual literacy and writing skills.

TaXi is the title of a series of books that begins to correct the lack of published documentation on contemporary South African art. The series – initiated by the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and published by David Krut Publishing – is additionally funded by Pro Helvetia – Arts Council of Switzerland, the MTN Art Institute and the Royal Netherlands Embassy.

Edited by art critic Brenda Atkinson, the series is envisaged as a long-term, non-profit cultural investment that will provide exposure for local writers and designers and, in collaboration with MTN, develop an active educational programme and teaching resource archive. The series includes French and Dutch text to make it accessible to an international audience.
