/A WORD OF ART is an evolving story.
The idea is to inspire through creative projects.
Over the last 5 years /AWOA has been based at 66 Albert Rd and has evolved many times through various chapters:
Chapter 1; ‘Nothing is everything’. 2009
When we moved the studio downstairs into an old bakery and launched a brand new exhibition space.
Chapter 2; ‘Friends’. 2010
Our first trip overseas to represent local artists and promote our project. Dedicated to the friends who helped inspire the beginning of /AWOA.
Chapter 3; ’Its not over’. 2011
When the building was sold we had to close down the residency, studios and exhibition space. Moving back into a new ground floor exhibition and studio space.
We now look ahead to the next chapter:
Chapter 4; ‘ Walls fall, reflections ripple’ 2013
We have closed down the commercial exhibition space to focus less on exhibitions and more on art activism projects within communities of South Africa. We will continue to host international artists in residence whom will be invited to work on these projects.This is the heart of /A WORD OF ART, The ripple.
