Three-part art exhibition LAB is bringing together three independent artist-run UK spaces work with Johannesburg’s Ithuba Arts Gallery.
The gallery acts as a sort of halfway between the British and South African visual art scenes, and the show explores the possibilities of working across the two cultures. The project began when the British Council Connect ZA invited the director of Ithuba Arts Gallery to visit the UK, researching the visual arts there and establishing contact with independent or artist-run spaces.
The result, based on the gallery director’s selection, was a three-part show with London’s AutoItalia SouthEast and Banner Repeater, as well as Birmingham’s Eastside Projects. The spaces then made the journey to South Africa, to become acquainted with both commercial and independent spaces and artists there.
