Lovers of arts, culture and beauty are in for a treat from the 6-29th April as Mall of Africa turns into an artistic extravaganza. Africa finds itself in a cultural resurgence, with contemporary art at its epicentre, the world’s eye has been captured by the vibrant beauty of the continent and all it has to offer. What better way to celebrate this than through a thoughtfully curated collection by Julie Miller.
The Art Collective boasts the title of the largest series of public art exhibitions in South Africa, with over 200 pieces on display under one truly African roof. It is also the first of its kind in South Africa, bringing art to life in a publicly accessible retail space, allowing for an entirely new audience to be exposed to African Art.
Besides the breathtaking sculptures, incredibly crafted from our own earth and raw material, paintings, drawings and sketches will be on display for the duration of The Collective.
Included in this Collective will be the critically acclaimed sculptor, Jean Doyle, whose work explores the hidden nature of women: their strength, resilience and humour. Jean has been a sculptor for over 30 years and her intuitive knowledge of the mediums she uses allows her to draw out captivating figures that tell their stories in incredible detail.
Another renowned South African artist, Azeal Langa, will be showcasing his work in a series of incredible pieces created with paint, pencils and most astoundingly, smoke. The artist has described his use of smoke as “an extension and expression of his soul” and his work speaks of exactly that. His work is both delicate and bold an is an absolute treat for the eyes and mind.
These artists will be joined by a host of others in this encapsulating Collective that has to be seen in person to be appreciated to its full extent.
We invite you to take a journey through the African Landscape with us, as The Collective debuted on Friday, 6 April and will run until Sunday, 29 April throughout the Mall, entrance to view is free and each piece will be available for purchase through Julie Miller Investment Art Institute. The Art Collective will exhibit throughout the upper level of the mall.
