Maritzburg Philatelic Society Exhibit

This exhibition draws together three bodies of work spanning six years of Faye Spencer’s art production: the Office Politics series, Indian Yellow and the Wish List projects, which include paintings, printmaking and creative writing.
Each of the three projects engages with notions of departure and dislocation, loss, and efforts at recovery, in various forms. The artist is interested in the dialogue that these different bodies of work establish internally in relation to the theme of departure, as well as the form that this dialogue assumes across
all three projects.

  • Lorna Ferguson Room
  • Opens: Tuesday 14 February at 10h00
  • Closes: Saturday 25 February 2017 at 13h00
