A POP_UP GRAPHIC ARTS AND PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION -
- represents the changing mood of artists in South(ern) Africa and it’s diaspora who are challenging existing perceptions by creating more political and social art in their storytelling on paper and in print. This year’s theme is Womxn. The exhibition focuses on work from both female artists and male artists creating work relating to the ongoing struggle for recognition and freedom of Womxn. Artist in residence Atang Tshikare (SA) takes centre stage for the exhibition with specially commissioned work made for the festival based on his visit to Amsterdam and his celebration of the women who have been important in his life and work. The exhibition is curated by Cathal McKee and Fiercepop.com
