"September Jive" Exhibition. The exhibition, which has a run at this year’s National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, is proudly presented by the Alliance Française Southern Africa with support from the French Institute South Africa (IFAS) and the SAMRO Foundation. Two exhibitions for a tribute to the South African musical heritage:
SA musical graphics offers visitors a reflection on South Africa’s political, social, and musical history from 1957 onwards, through 150 of the most beautiful, important, and interesting locally-designed album sleeves. The exhibition was curated by collectors and designers Siemon Allen, Rob Allingham, Caroline Hillary, and Molemo Moiloa.
My favourite sounds consists of 47 photo portraits (shot by Dwayne Kapula) of music and media personalities including Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Johnny Clegg, Brenda Sisane, accompanied by short interviews about their favourite South African music and explaining why they chose it. This exhibition is the work of photographer Kapula. This exhibition is a testimony of the power of music, how some artists can have a life-changing effect on some of their listeners. It is also about transmission, influence and cross-pollination between genres and great artists.
