Beach, mountains and African art!

Hello Cape Town!

This was it.

Micro Galleries hit Cape Town in March for a small scale installation and to chat about something bigger, brighter and African in 2016.

Co-curated with Chuck Scalin and Langa artist Thamisanqa, facilitated by VeryHK and supported by Open Streets, we are aiming to build a cross-cultural dialogue between Cape Town and Hong Kong, and showcase this amazing township to the world.

Open Streets is a citizen-driven initiative, working to change how streets are used, perceived and experienced. As part of Open Streets, MG will include Hong Kong artists, local Langa artists and some of our amazing MG international artists, present two symposium-style discussions called Crate Chat where artists from the Langa community will be invited to come and discuss pertinent local issues and how arts and culture can affect change. There will also be two free, guided tours introducing the community to the art works and their intention.

As if that;s not enough insanely cool stuff, with the help of VeryHK we will also connect a Hong Kong-based creative industry creator with a Langa artist in order to work virtually and collaboratively on a new work that displays vision and hope for the future of Langa, to be showcased at Micro Galleries (Cape Town) in 2016





If you are a Langa-based artist, please email kat@ruedelarocket.com
