Rust-en-Vrede Art Exchange
A Rust-en-Vrede Gallery project to generate exposure for SA artists abroad &
at the same time exposing our visitors to work of foreign artists.
Rust-en-Vrede is a non-profit organization and our dream is to create a platform for the international exchange of art and culture.
We are crowdfunding through Thundafund to showcase South African print art abroad and to expose our audience to art from around the world
In November of this year we will host an exhibition of Austrian artists at the Rust-en-Vrede gallery. In February 2016 we want to take the work of 30 of South Africa’s best print artists to –Mexico!!! This will include artists who work in the mediums of etching, lithography, mono printing, screen-printing, lino printing and wood block printing.
Together with our team members in Mexico we have possible exhibition venues in Mexico City, Queretaro and Oaxaca.
On our return to South Africa the 30 prints will also be displayed in an exhibition at Rust-en-Vrede Gallery.
We will have a colour catalogue printed with an image of each artwork, a short bio of each artist as well as their contact details. We will also invite some Mexican artists to have an exhibition at Rust-en-Vrede in the following year.
We are crowdfunding to generate the funds for the airfare, accommodation in Mexico, putting up the exhibition and printing of the catalogues. Please help us get to Mexico!
Milestone 1 – R25 000
The Tipping Point
Our most basic need would be airfare to Mexico, and printing a catalogue
Milestone 2 – R30 000
With further funds, we could pay for accommodation
Milestone 3 – R40 000
The Ultimate Goal
We could extend our exhibition time in Mexico, display the work in more venues and print a better quality catalogue
