This month youth magazine Live Magazine SA and the British Council Connect ZA are offering young people the opportunity to tour the exhibition Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life – with a focus on its curation – as part of the #CreativeHustles event series.
Currently on show at Museum Africa (Newtown, Johannesburg), Rise and Fall of Apartheid offers the first comprehensive historical overview of the pictorial response to apartheid ever undertaken. With over 500 images, 27 films, ephemera and a book, the exhibition explores the significance of the 50-year-long liberation struggle in South Africa, from how apartheid defined and marked South Africa’s identity from 1948 to 1994, to the rise of Nelson Mandela, and finally its lasting impact on the country’s society.
Taking place on Thursday 29 May, #CreativeHustle: Curation in Photography will give attendees the unique opportunity to learn about the exhibition’s curation – led by Museum Africa Curator Zola Mtshiza and Rory Bester, Head: History of Art at Wits School of the Arts who curated the exhibition with Okwui Enwezor.
A Q&A session will follow – encouraging discussion about curation in photography and the possibilities within the digital realm.
#CreativeHustles is a partnership between Live Magazine SA and British Council Connect ZA, offering a platform for up-and-coming creatives, aged 18 to 35 years, to engage and build relationships with established industry professionals and to receive creative and career advice.
