The VR masks created for @marysibande A Crescendo of Ecstasy show at @tmrw_gallery located at @keyesartmile  in Johannesburg South Africa.  The masks were made by 3D Scanning the Artist and 3D Printing masks to Hold and disguise VR headsets. We created software to then play the content as people lifted the masks to their face. Charging and battery was a challenge where we solved by building induction charges into the masks themselves. Masks were placed at different areas in the gallery and each had its own experience created by digital twins of existing physical artworks. Such a privilege working with Mary on his incredible show. #marysibandevr #virtualreality #edenlabsafrica #tmrw_gallery #marysibande #johannesburg #ar #digitaltwin #futureproofafrica #augmentedreality #3dprinting #3dprint #art #digitalart #edenlabs #eden #photogrammetry #3dscanning #gtc18 #vrdays #gallery #sculpture #afrofuturism #robobeast #3dp

The New Museum and The Store X present “Strange Days: Memories of the Future,” an exhibition of select video works shown at the New Museum during its ten years on the Bowery.
.
Strange Days: Memories of the Future is overwhelming: complex, at times annoying and confusing, repetitive, uplifting and baffling. Like life, really. Films and videos by 21 artists are spread over three floors of the Store X on London’s Strand. Following the Hayward Gallery’s The Infinite Mix here in 2016, this exhibition features artists who have all shown at New York’s New Museum over the last decade. There is dancing. There is singing. There are stories – too many to recount here – and there is sex. You’ll go fishing in the Amazon, have a wild old time in Ryan Trecartin’s queer frat-house (along with lots of cosmetics, live baby chickens and a horse), swim beneath the decaying lily pads on a blue autumnal day with Pipilotti Rist and enter a world of horticultural sex and death with Laure Prouvost.

A new wave of photographers in Africa State of Mind. It’s about opening up new ways of looking at and understanding what it means to live in Africa, and be African, today," says curator Ekow Eshun.
.
“This is a unique time for African photography,” says curator Ekow Eshun. “There’s a wave of thrilling, artistically ambitious talent emerging across the continent.”
He’s gathered some of the best of it for a new show called Africa State of Mind, opening this week in New Art Exchange – the UK’s largest space devoted to culturally diverse contemporary visual arts. Including artists such has Emmanuele Andrianjafy, Sammy Baloji, and Musa N Nxumalo, the exhibition shows off talent from a new generation of African artists, exploring how they interrogate the idea of ‘Africanness’ in their work, and ‘Africa’ as a psychological as much as a physical space.

For his Interwoven series, Kyle Meyer addresses Swaziland’s hyper-masculine culture by photographing its LGBTQ community. He creates an elaborate headwrap from fabrics chosen by each subject from textiles conventionally used for women’s headdresses. After taking the subject’s portrait and creating a large-scale print, Meyer hand-cuts the photograph and the head wrap into strips, weaving them together to create a textured, three-dimensional work. Meyer’s tapestries imagine a parallel world in which the queerness of his subjects may be expressed as brazenly as the bold patterns coloring the headdresses. Transformed and taking on a heroic or even mythological aura, the resulting colorful artworks both conceal and reveal the men’s identities, whose sexual orientation is illegal in their country.
.
Kyle Meyer’s work has been installed in shows at the Bronx Museum of Art; Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln; Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton; State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia and the Pingyao International Photography Festival, Pingyao, among others. His first solo exhibition at the gallery will open in Winter 2018-19.

Dalila Dalléas Bouzar interrogates her link to personal and collective memory. Connecting portraiture, architecture and cartography, Bouzar’s work navigates the history of place and the individual. Whether creating intimate self-portraits or recapturing remnants of the Algerian War of Independence, Bouzar reinterprets archival photographs and documents through painting, drawing and sculptural materials.
.
Her recent exhibitions include Mix [cited], GVCC Gallery, Casablanca, Instants Vidéos Festival, La Fosse, Marseilles; FLASH!, DX Gallery, Bordeaux, AnneXafriques, Roche de Palmer, Cenon, International Festival of Video Art Casablanca, French Institute, Hassan II University, Morocco (2017) and the Dak’Art – Biennale de l’Art African Contemporain (2016). Bouzar’ s work has been acquired by collections such as FRAC Marseille, France; Fondation Kamel Lazaar, Tunisia; World Bank Foundation, USA and Appartements, Algeria public collection. She is also the recipient of the 2017 “L’Art est Vivant” prize at the Art Paris Art Fair.

In his drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations, Hassan experiments with the written and spoken word, exploring the theme of languages erased by colonial domination. With an invented, Kufic-inspired script, he plays with the symbols, textures and calligraphy of his Nubian heritage to explore the space between graphic symbolism and literal meaning in vibrant colours and collage. His work is in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the British Museum, London and The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Washington, D.C.

When it comes to art, style or creative influences, the continent of Africa and the 54 countries contained within it cannot be described or classified as a single entity. And for the last six years, one fair in London has been showcasing as much of that diversity as possible, and at the same time bringing African artists to a global stage. Miranda Atty reports from London's Somerset House.
.
And to find out about how the 1-54 African Art Fair is putting the continent's art scene on the map, Showcase is joined by Alistair Hicks. He is the author of a book titled Global Art Compass, which takes readers on a world tour of contemporary art.

Frieze London is one of the few fairs to focus only on contemporary art and living artists. The fair’s exhibiting galleries represent some of the most exciting artists working today, from the emerging to the iconic; and a team of world-leading independent curators advise on feature sections, making possible performance-based work and ambitious presentations by emerging galleries. The fair’s focus on living artists and innovative practice is also evident in Frieze Projects, the critically acclaimed programme of new artists’ commissions; and Frieze Talks, which is curated by frieze magazine editors. Unlike most other fairs, Frieze takes place at the heart of its host city, forming part of London’s vibrant cultural fabric and international art scene. .

The New Museum and The Store X present “Strange Days: Memories of the Future,” an exhibition of select video works shown at the New Museum during its ten years on the Bowery.
.
Strange Days: Memories of the Future is overwhelming: complex, at times annoying and confusing, repetitive, uplifting and baffling. Like life, really. Films and videos by 21 artists are spread over three floors of the Store X on London’s Strand. Following the Hayward Gallery’s The Infinite Mix here in 2016, this exhibition features artists who have all shown at New York’s New Museum over the last decade. There is dancing. There is singing. There are stories – too many to recount here – and there is sex. You’ll go fishing in the Amazon, have a wild old time in Ryan Trecartin’s queer frat-house (along with lots of cosmetics, live baby chickens and a horse), swim beneath the decaying lily pads on a blue autumnal day with Pipilotti Rist and enter a world of horticultural sex and death with Laure Prouvost.

You’ll then be free to explore, with an option to meet the group to compare notes and venture to other events. . #154london  #frieze  #friezeartfair  #fnbjoburgartfair  #contemporaryart  #africamodern  #Africa  #art  #design  #artist  #ZaneleMuholi  #NicholasHlobo  #PieterHugo  #WilliamKentridge  #MohauModisakeng  #NtoneEdjabe  #SantuMofokeng  #MarySibande  #PennySiopis  #MikhaelSubotzky  #MatthewWild  #AchilleMbembe  #AshrafJamal  #SisonkeMsimang  #ktwf  #ktwongfoundation  #supportedbythektwongfoundation

Forests and Spirits: new show at Saatchi Gallery highlights the influence of African art.
.
Work by a trio of Sudanese artists - Salah Elmur, Kamala Ishaq and Ibrahim El-Salahi - is on display at SALON at Saatchi Gallery's next show, Forests and Spirits: figurative art from the Khartoum School.
.
Whilst El-Salahi was the subject of a retrospective at Tate Modern in 2013, this landmark presentation is the first to introduce the work of these three major contemporary African artists to London.
.
Forests and Spirits seeks to bring wider attention to contemporary African art, and in particular the enduring influence of the Khartoum School, an art movement centred around the city’s College of Fine and Applied Arts in Sudan. Formed in 1960 by Ishaq, El-Salahi and Ahmed Shibrain, all three artists in the show studied at the College - Elmur was even a pupil in the 1980s when Ishaq, a former graduate, was head of painting.

Presenting three significant artists to a new audience. The exhibition has a common theme – the tree – which each uses independently – but which are linked via natural and cultural associations. It thrills me to be able to share the works. The sculpture, Meditation Tree by El-Salahi, forms a physical work that brings in the Tree theme within the canvases together.

This year’s Frieze London has a de facto girl power theme. Start at Social Work, a section dedicated to feminists who bucked the late 20th-Century patriarchy. On display will be everything from Sonia Boyce’s Afro-Caribbean-inspired canvases to the late Helen Chadwick’s provocative, anatomical sculptures. Meanwhile, Pilar Corrias will celebrate its 10th birthday with a display of pieces by noteworthy female artists, including the brilliant up-and-comer Tschabalala Self; the Hollybush Gardens stall will house paintings by 2017 Turner Prize-winner Lubaina Himid; and The Modern Institute will present works by the brilliant Glaswegian artist Cathy Wilkes, who has been chosen to represent the UK at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

Mary Sibande is a South African artist and  today’s feature of #AfroFuturistFriday! Through her life-sized sculptures, Mary Sibande has gotten acclaim for telling the story of her alter-ego, Sophie, a domestic worker who finds liberation in her dreams. In doing so, Mary challenges the stereotypical portrayal of women in South Africa and explores the intersections of power and female identity. Her work is truly otherworldly but but at the same time, it’s familiar. Swipe to see a couple of her sculptures! @marysibande

Experiencing Mary Sibande’s “A Crescendo of Ecstasy” presented by @tmrw_gallery at the #ContemporaryIstanbul art fair in Turkey. 
Working for the first time with virtual reality, Sibande extends the experience of her large scale alter-ego sculptures and otherworldly forms from photography to an immersive medium that is both physical and virtual. To retain her identity as a sculptor, the VR glasses is at once a mask, a sculptural installation and a medium to another world. There is also a commentary on identity and reality that is consistent with her existing work on the construction of identity, particularly women’s identity within postcolonial South Africa. 
A Crescendo of Ecstasy was first presented by TMRW Gallery in South Africa early this year.

Striking contrast defines the self-portraiture of Zanele Muholi, the photographer who, in recent years, has become an art world phenom. The unsmiling South African artist renders herself in searing, digitally amplified monochrome against stark backgrounds - a minimally wrought bedroom or beach, at most. Costumed in a tiara or an elaborate hair adornment, and wrapped with tires or rope around her body and head, Muholi creates a series of diverse characters that allude to the multiplicity of self.

Striking contrast defines the self-portraiture of Zanele Muholi, the photographer who, in recent years, has become an art world phenom. The unsmiling South African artist renders herself in searing, digitally amplified monochrome against stark backgrounds - a minimally wrought bedroom or beach, at most. Costumed in a tiara or an elaborate hair adornment, and wrapped with tires or rope around her body and head, Muholi creates a series of diverse characters that allude to the multiplicity of self.

Kemang Wa Lehulere is firmly established as the preeminent young South African artist on the global scene right now... His work addresses post-apartheid disquiet and other important issues, and, beyond merely instrumentalising certain symbols of politics, his work has instead facilitated politics. It creates discussion. Wa Lehulere’s exhibitions and performances are spaces for working out ideas; and not allowing something to be fixed into a static representation is very much at the heart of all he does.
