Africonic at Gallery

Sep 24 - Nov 19 2021       Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton Central
share is a hybrid contemporary art gallery with both a physical gallery space hosting regular exhibitions, as well as an extensive online platform where you can also buy art directly and get it delivered. Previously based opposite 44 Stanley, in September 2021 the gallery moved to a new space in Nelson Mandela Square, placed in prime position to capture the attentions of contemporary art buyers in Africa's richest square mile. 

The new Sandton space launches over Heritage weekend 2021 with a new group exhibition Africonic (on show until Nov 19) and a special opening day of art conversations, music and bubbly on Friday September 24. aims to create new opportunities for contemporary African artists to make their work discoverable and affordable. Exhibiting and selling work by both emerging and mid-career artists, especially original artworks, the gallery also offers a fantastic selection of limited edition prints. 

The Africonic exhibition features works by many of the most popular artists who held solo exhibitions at the gallery's previous space, including Andrew Ntshabele's joyful portraits painted on newspaper (these works have consistently all sold at previous exhibitions), sculpture by Anton Smit and Bambo Sibiya's distinctive brightly coloured depictions of everyday Joburg characters.

Other artists whose works are on show in the exhibition include Bevan de Wet, Charmaine Haines, Nicola Holgate, Patrick Seruwu, Solomon Omogboye, Stompie Selibe, Teboho Makoatsa and Vivien Kohler.
