The Bag Factory Artists’ Studios is thrilled to announce its 25th Anniversary Exhibition entitled
FOUNDATIONS AND FUTURES

When: Opening on Friday, 28th October, 2016

Time: 6pm

Where: Bag Factory Artists’ Studios, 10 Mahlatini Street, Fordsburg

The Exhibition Foundations and Futures runs from
Monday 31 October until Saturday 10 December 2016,
Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.

For 25 years the Bag Factory Artists’ Studios has been more than just a building and studio space. It has provided the foundation of many an artist’s career. Built out of the dream for artists from different backgrounds to be able to work together, the Bag Factory is a community that continuously supports and builds on its ethos of “the community studio space where artists practice is held in the highest regard and experimentation is encouraged.”

Over 25 years these foundations have been strengthened by the artists and staff who have poured their passion and efforts into the community and ethos of the space. In recent years the Bag Factory has worked hard to encourage a younger community of artists to engage in our programming ensuring that the life-blood of the space – interaction and development – continues to pump.

The community has played host to artists such as Helen Sebidi, Deborah Bell, Sam Nhlengethwa, Penny Siopsis, Benon Lutaaya, Blessing Ngobeni, Neo Matloga, Dinkies Sithole, Kay Hassan and many, many more. We have created an international following through our visiting artists programme and a consistent space for art loving members of the public to experience outstanding work.

While many things have changed over the past 25 years, 3 have more or less stayed the same.
1. After 25 years, artists David Koloane and Pat Mautloa still have studio space at the Bag Factory.
2. We remain in the hessian bag factory in Newtown that gave its name to the organisation.
3. We have never changed our creative community ethos.
The organization without any of these would not exist and each is linked.

On Friday 28th October 2016, the Bag Factory begins the celebration of an incredible 25 years with an exhibition entitled Foundations and Futures. Since the inception of the organization, over 300 artists have been through the space either as studio artists, visiting artists, participants in workshops and exhibitions and as winners of award programmes. All of them have been influenced and have influenced the space in many rich and diverse ways.

Foundations and Futures is an acknowledgment of these influences and the celebration of a space that not only supports the artistic community but is driven by it. The programme continues with artist performances, conversations and master classes through the months of October, November and December 2016.

Artists participating in the exhibition Foundations and Futures opening on Friday 28 October 2016 include Blake Daniels; Paul Emmanuel; Jarrett Erasmus; Marie Fricout; Gordon Froud; Carlo Galli; Arash Hanaei; Diana Hyslop; Sharlene Khan; Asanda Kupa; David Koloane; Shenaz Mahomed; Pat Mautloa; Tshepo Mosopa; Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi; Tracey Rose; Usha Seejarim; Lerato Shadi; Johan Thom; Stijn van Dorpe and Mary Wafer

Join us on this momentous occasion to celebrate 25 years of outstanding artists, art and art enthusiasts.

The MAP collection will be accompanied by an exhibition of projects by the Trinity Session. Both MAP and Trinity Session exhibits will act as platforms framing The Heart of the African City and the selected artists chosen to support the event. Each artist will be included into the MAP book for the African Perspectives event, which will become part of the prolific collection of books in the MAP black box collection.

African Perspectives:

African Perspectives is a biannual international event with various programmes and conferences held on the African continent. In 2009 the event will be held at the University of Pretoria in Tshwane, South Africa, and in 2011 in Casablanca, Morocco. The international conference is themed around the African City (re)sourced and the city as resource, and will take place from the 24th to the 28th of September 2009.

African Perspectives is an ongoing initiative of ArchiAfrika, emphasizing the construction of a global urban narrative, particularly surrounding issues of independence, globalization, and urbanization in an already decolonized, post-industrial, late-capitalist, pluralistic global community that is simultaneously divided and unified by various political, economic, religious, ethnic, tribal and cultural issues. At the same time, new technologies such as the Internet and other global
communications are ambiguously erasing and solidifying such territories and borders, based on the aforementioned issues. These territories form the basis of a dialogue that attempts to dissect the pluralisms and polarities of a constructed global community.
