“Consider China”

Opening talk by Kristin Hua Yang of the Centre for Visual Arts at UKZN Pietermaritzburg.

 One of the most important changes and developments for Africa is the increased force of China. When we look outside we still mostly look at Europe or the U.S. when these are of dwindling significance.


 We invited a select group of artists to participate in an exhibition titled: “Consider China”.  This is our 4th ‘Inspiration’ exhibition where we present the artists with a new theme from which to work and provide them with some inspiration.


In preparation for this exhibition the gallery organized an all day workshop at the COLLECTIVE on March 13th. The workshop included breakfast and with a break for a Chinese lunch.


Dr. Ross Anthony for the Centre of Chinese Studies at Stellenbosch University and Kristin Hua Yang of the Centre for Visual Arts at UKZN Pietermaritzburg presented a comprehensive and diverse picture covering art, social, environmental, financial and political issues of our relationship with China.


 It is an interesting time for Africa and it is good for us, as artists, to investigate what political, social and environmental changes will be happening to the continent.
