(Thami Jali’s “Satellite Dish”)

artSPACE durban is hosting an exhibition at the Durban Art Gallery in Gallery 4 titled Looking Forward: Our Lives in 2034.

Twenty years ago seems like yesterday and 2034 is just tomorrow.

In this, the 20th year of democracy in South Africa, the Durban Art Gallery and artSPACE durban are cooperating in this exhibition which is under the curatorship of Jenny Stretton and Karen Bradtke and brings together a group selected artists from KwaZulu-Natal.

Each artist presents one artwork, which is a culmination of individual research and the participation in a two-day seminar which was held at artSPACE durban in July and chaired by Tanja Hichert, senior researcher form the Institute for Futures Research, University of Stellenbosch and Director of the South African Node of the Millennium Project.

This exhibition runs concurrently with an exhibition of works from the Durban Art Gallery Collection curated by Jenny Stretton and, together, represents the most significant exhibition in Durban for a very long time.

Looking Forward: Our Lives in 2034 is sponsored in part by the Natal Arts Trust and runs at the Durban Art Gallery until September 14. More information from Karen Bradtke on 031 312 0793.
