Join Pfunzo Sidogi for a walkabout of the 2021 Sasol New Signatures exhibition

The Sasol New Signatures Art Competition exhibition, featuring the work of the 2021 winners and finalists is currently underway at the Pretoria Art Museum until 9 January 2022. A total of 123 works in a multitude of mediums can be viewed – from traditional painting and drawing to mixed media works, sculpture, installation pieces and video.

Alongside the exhibition, the 2019 winner, Patrick Rulore’s solo exhibition, Life in Darkness is also on show. Rulore’s exhibition captures typical moments in many South African households during load shedding. The series explores human connections against the backdrop of an ephemeral world of light and shadow.

Pfunzo Sidogi, Chairperson of Sasol New Signatures will be hosting a walkabout of the Sasol New Signatures exhibition on Saturday 27 November 2021 at 11:00. He will be joined by Rulore, who will talk about the works in his solo exhibition.  

Sidogi will discuss the winning works by Andrea Du Plessis (winner), Dalli Weyers (runner-up) and the 5 merit winners Nico Athene, Michèle Deeks, Sibaninzi Dlatu, Eugene Hlophe and Monica Klopper. He will also discuss other standout works within the exhibition.  

‘All the artworks submitted for this year are timeless records of the world as it was not seen through the creative lenses of the artistic shamans of our generation. The art showcased in this competition is our art. The stories being told through the art, some of them light-hearted and others disturbing, are our stories. Let us embrace and preserve these personal and shared memoirs of our most unusual times.’
