I’m thrilled to be part of the upcoming A Shot to the Arse exhibition presented by Michaelis Galleries.

Curated by Belinda Blignaut, the exhibition explores the interrelationship between art and change; how artists process, comment on, react to or transform upheaval, violence, destruction and everyday experience.

A Shot to the Arse seeks to be a document of the spirit of our time, taking into account universal cycles of history repeating itself, and examining what counter culture is to us in 2012 – our emotional responses and cultural equivalents of political opposition running counter to a social mainstream.

Participating artists are Stuart Bird, Belinda Blignaut, Jan-Henri Booyens, Breinskade, Kris Canavan, Steven Cohen, Jesse Darling, Simmi Dullay, Ediblspaceships, Kendell Geers, Gabrielle Goliath, Nadine Hutton, Jimmy Kipple Sound, Christian Nerf, Panga Management, Daniel Rourke, Athi-Patra Ruga, Wilhelm Saayman, Richardt Strydom, Linda Stupart, David Tallis, James Webb, Vanskrum, Konrad Welz, and Roger Young.

Such a privilege to share a space with such amazing artists.

A Shot to the Arse opens at 18:00 on 14 August, and will run until 13 September 2012. Opening hours are Tues – Fri 11.00 to 16.00, Sat 10.00 to 13.00 or by appointment.
