By deciding to devote part of its selection to female artists in 2018, the Investec Cape Town Art Fair is sending out a strong signal, recognising their place on the local and international art scene. The SOLO section of the fair, curated this year by Nontobeko Ntombela, proposes a group of individual exhibitions that address the social, cultural, and economic challenges continually faced by women worldwide. SOLO also highlights the extent to which artistic creation by women contributes to enriching and developing discourse around contemporary thought.
Browse through this special Cape Town edition, in which Intense Art Magazine invites you to peruse the work of artists whose art simultaneously creates a stir, delights and inspires. Mostly South Africans, these women share thoughtful, visionary and always credible depictions of ourselves and of our world through the images and objects that they creat, or the acts that they stage.
Articles by talented authors, as well as unexpected pieces by three ‘special’ guests, will guide you through this artistic leg in South Africa.
