Opening on June 29 is artSPACE durban’s Main Gallery is their Inspiration VI Exhibition, Durban: Yesterday, Now and Tomorrow.

“A city is an entity constantly changing and mirroring the aspirations and values of its citizens and governing systems. As we live in our cities we create our own ghettos and thus are mostly unaware and unfamiliar with vast sections of them,” says Karen Bradtke of artSPACE durban.

For a second time since its first Inspiration exhibition, artSPACE durban invited 25 of Durban’s best artists to join them in an eight-hour tour of city areas, seldom if ever visited.

The tour was designed to give the artists a day away from their usual work places and environment to reflect on the theme of the exhibition while in different and unfamiliar surroundings with all that entails.

The participating artists are Caroline Birch, Jane Oliver, Grace Kotze, Coral Spencer, Nicole Pletts, Trui Roozeveld van der Ven, Scott Bredin, Pascale Chandler, Celeste Bredin, Bronwyn Bruce, Lee Scott Hempson, Andreas Chasomeris, Bernice Stott, Corne Eksteen, Deidre Maree, Pam Benporath, Karen Bradtke, Kay Smart, Rob Domijan, Michele Silk and Mandy Kok.

Durban: Yesterday, Now and Tomorrow opens at 18h00 to 18h30 on June 29 and runs until July 18 at 14h00 at artSPACE durban, 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
