Join the KZNSA Gallery tomorrow (March 25, 2018) at 11h00 with artist Peter Ford as he does a walkabout of his solo exhibition, Accid3nt of Place.

Accid3nt of Place refers to the tradition of Dada or Dadaism within art history - the avant-garde movement in the early 20th Century that rejected the logic, reason and aestheticism of modern capitalist society. Dada has become synonymous with the creative process as being ‘accidental’. Dada offered a further rejection of the conventions of high art which stresses laborious technique and action. The exhibition title also refers to the idea that this artist’s body of work could only have been produced in South Africa. Artworks and the exhibition installation are an exploration of our social and political landscape and as such are presented as a cultural/artistic tool of resistance.

All are welcome and entry is free.

Accid3nt of Place runs until April 9. The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
