Serving Msunduzi through the Visual Arts
24 February to 15 March 1996
Artworks in all styles and media will be represented on the Biennale 6 exhibition running at The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg from 24 February to 15 March 1996.
Regional exhibitions have replaced the Natal Arts Trust's usual centralised exhibition and these exhibitions will be held at the art museums in Newcastle, Durban, Margate, Empangeni and Pietermaritzburg.
On March 2 the director of the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg, Brendan Bell, conducted a walkabout of the KwaZulu-Natal Biennale 6 exhibition.
Artists whose work is selected for the Biennale 6 also stand a chance of having work selected for a special exhibition to open at the Standard Bank National Arts Festival.
Festival director Alan Crump has invited KZN public art museum curators to curate an exhibition of contemporary art from the province to be shown at the Dakawa Art Centre in Grahamstown at the 1996 festival and thereafter in Johannesburg, Pietermaritzburg and Durban.
The Tatham Art Gallery holds an Art Collection that contains significant British and French artworks dating back to the 18th century. Its South-African art collection is focused on, but not exclusive to, the art of KwaZulu-Natal.
The Tatham Art Gallery hosts a range of Art Exhibitions. These include traveling and researched exhibitions as well as exhibitions initiated by the Gallery and compiled from the collection.
