Johannesburg, 14 November 2018: Some of Africa’s finest young artists will gather at The Sheds at 1 Fox Street this Saturday for what promises to be a one-of-a-kind visual art, music, fashion and food feast.
The second edition of One Source Live creative festival will be serving up an optical buffet bound to leave the crowd satiated. From Mzansi’s darling of street fashion photography Trevor Stuurman and Kenya’s surrealist marvel photographer Osborne Macharia, to pure untapped young talent, the art exhibition will offer up vibrant works of photographs, paintings, installations and exhibitions.
The sartorial lensman, Stuurman, has created a multi-discipline installation that incorporates stills photography and performance art, lending a live pulsating feel to his exhibition that will be on show at different times throughout the day.
Macharia, who was the toast of the continent earlier this year when he unveiled commissioned critically-acclaimed art pieces to celebrate the release of Black Panther, will wow aficionados and newbies alike with his intriguing works that play in the Afro-futurism and science fiction narratives.
Those with an eye for the new will be delighted with five large-scale 3D installations commissioned by some of SA’s brightest young designers – Russell Abrahams, Seth Pimental, David Tshabalala, Keith Vlahakis and Lauren Mitchell. Look out for bottles of Absolut turned into works of art, social commentary via dynamic prints, vibrant palettes of energy, artistic reimagining of Africa and more showcases of an edgy youth spirit.
Nearly 30 000 cyclists, watched by even more spectators, will be taking to the Gauteng roads to celebrate the 22nd edition of the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge this Sunday, 18 November.
