Sculptures unusual

Sculptures unusual

A bronze Edoardo Villa alongside a Maurice Mbikayi made of plastic keyboard keys is an unusual sight. And it is exactly this sense of adventure that can be expected from POP-IN a South African sculptural exhibition curated by Alberto Rodriguez.
Worldart gallery in Cape Town will host the exhibition for two weeks from 5 – 18 July. A collection of sculptures and sculptural ideas by artists such as Bruce Arnott, Charl Grabe and David Brown will be showed.
POP-IN will be the first of a series of pop-up curated exhibitions by Rodriguez that will each feature different elements of South African art and design as seen through the eyes of an experienced visual practitioner who isn’t home grown.
“Local people tend to get used to their art and design – to the point where they forget to pause and actually see it. They also often experience it in a specific context or frame of reference and as a foreigner my contribution is to point out different ways of looking at the familiar and to create a new and fresh experience. I find this very exciting!” says Rodriguez.

Alberto Rodriguez, who was born in the Canary Islands, has in recent years worked on projects with Alberta Ferretti, Gucci and Robert Sherwood Interior Design.

Venue: Worldart Gallery, 54 Church Street, Cape Town CBD
Dates: 5 July – 18 July 2012
Hours: Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 10am -1pm. Closed on Sundays.
