Share the #artcrawl experience
Knowledge is the gift that keeps on giving. In her #artcrawls Mary Corrigall demystifies the world of contemporary African art and opens up a space for people to learn about what is happening in art right now.
Is a curated walking tour of galleries in major art nodes in Cape Town (Joburg #crawls start in early 2017). They are centred on a particular theme art critic, commentator and curator, Mary Corrigall has identified that is pertinent to art currently on show. The crawls begin with an introduction to the theme, where Corrigall provides a bit of historical context. From there the crawl weaves in and out of galleries and artist studios were Corrigall stops to look at specific artworks and engages in a dialogue with artists about their work. Crawls conclude with lunch in quirky cafe's.
#artcrawls take place at least once a month in Cape Town (Joburg dates and crawls TBA) The crawls last for 2 hours. They usually include 3 to 4 stops. No previous knowledge of art is required; they are accessible and informal excursions for anyone interested in art, art lovers, buyers, artists, teachers or foreign visitors.
