Karel Nel: 'Close and Far' at Wits Art Museum (WAM)

May 30 - Aug 3 2024       Cnr Jan Smuts Ave and Jorissen St, Braamfontein
Close and Far at Wits Art Museum (WAM) is a survey exhibition of Karel Nel's work across four decades. It is a fascinating deep dive into the artist's life-long engagement with the role of thought and consciousness in our interpretation of the world, and the universe at large. The earliest works from the 1980s are Nel's mind's eye drawings that map mental states, while an inquiry into the ideas, insights, images, and raw data that astronomers use inform some of his most recent work.

Sat, Jun 29 – Walkabout with artist Karel Nel.
Sat, Jul 20 – Family talk-about with experienced docents Pam and Elona (this is an art-making session open to all ages).
Sat, Aug 3 – Closing walkabout with curator Fiona Rankin-Smith and Karel Nel.
