LIZETTE CHIRRIME NOMINATED FOR BRIGHT YOUNG THING (BYT) AWARD

The Art Africa Fair has nominated eight artists for the inaugural BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS (BYT) award and residency.

According to the organisers of the Art Africa Fair, “these artists represent the most promising and talented of their generation. They’re committed and they are all headed to play a significant role in today’s society. They are young, bright, and live in no fairy tale world.”
The Art Africa Fair takes place from 24 February – 5 March 2017, at the Jubilee Hall in the Watershed at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
