The African Art Centre (AAC) will present a group exhibition called Scream. Opening tomorrow (October 4, 2018), it is a unique and diverse fine art produced by emerging and established local artists.

‘The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid but he who conquers that fear,’ (Long Walk To Freedom)

When does one scream?

According to the dictionary the meaning of the word scream is:
To shriek, screech apply to crying out in a loud, piercing way. To scream is to utter a loud, piercing cry, especially of pain, fear, anger, or excitement or to scream with terror. The word is used also for a little, barely audible cry given by one who is startled.

Scream (Speak your mind) exhibition is attempting to re-interpret the word ‘scream’ in the new South African context e.g. cultural, social, language perspective, gender, religious etc. Scream is trying to zoom into society’s fabric by placing a microscopic lens of artistic expression.

This exhibition, which runs until October 24, is part of the Velobala Exhibition-Making workshop series. Scream curators are Gloria Mbhele, Major Ndlovu and Lindani Nyandeni. Admission is free.

The African Art Centre is situated at 15 A Station Drive, off Umgeni Road, Durban. For further information / materials contact 031 312 3804 or email:
