"Singing the real" - walkabout going for a song

On 19 July at 17:30, Iziko Museums will host a free walkabout by visiting curator Patrick Murphy of an exhibition of contemporary Irish art. The exhibition runs until 30 September at Iziko South African National Gallery. Organised by the Royal Hibernian Society and supported by Culture Ireland, "Singing the Real" marks the beginning of a cultural exchange between Ireland and South Africa.

 

Incorporating the work of a number of innovative artists and using different media, the exhibition explores themes such as landscape, pollution and the impoverishment of the spirit in its relationship to the land.

The walkabout forms part of Iziko's Winter Public Programme. Enquiries: Wandile 021 481 3814 or 083 335 6461 or email publicprogs@iziko.org.za.
