The Nando’s Creative Exchange 2019 Group Exhibition
The Nando’s Creative Exchange Programme was first established in 2011 to recognise emerging, South African fine artists who demonstrate exceptional ability.
‘Home’ is the theme of The Nando’s Creative Exchange 2019, in partnership with Spier Arts Trust. The group exhibition at the AVA Gallery in Cape Town displays creative works by four emerging artists, Adolf Tega, Thembalethu Manqunyana, Robyn Pretorius and Wonder Marthinus, and will run until 16 January 2020.
The four artists selected for this programme enjoy the opportunity to take part in an exhibition sponsored by Nando’s, as well as mentorship opportunities and sponsored art materials.
“Nando’s Creative Exchange aims to help artists to develop their careers through assisting them to improve their business skills, providing access to market and exposing them to gallerists, buyers and the art industry.”
This year’s Creative Exchange artists have been mentored by Sepideh Mehraban, an Iranian-born artist, working and living in Cape Town. She is currently completing a PhD in Fine Art at Stellenbosch University.
“Over the course of the last few months I’ve had the privilege of mentoring these four artists’ journey as part of Nando’s Exchange programme,” she says. “Seeing their vision and the power of art to narrate stories that haven’t been heard yet was an exceptional experience.”
The artists’ work can be seen at the AVA Gallery in Cape Town until the 16th of January 2020.
