JSE Exhibition: Every Society is a Promise

We thrilled to announce our recent collaboration with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) for an exhibition that opened on the 2nd of December. This partnership is a shining example of how collaborations between artistic organizations and corporate entities can foster not only cultural enrichment but also create access to art for diverse communities. The exhibition at JSE is more than just a display of artistic talent; it's a bridge connecting different sectors of society through the universal language of art.
By partnering with JSE, we are able to showcase the incredible talent of our artists to a new and varied audience, while also highlighting the critical role of corporate support in nurturing the arts. This initiative is a step towards our ongoing commitment to making art an integral part of community development and cultural exchange.

About the exhibition: “Every Society is a Promise” is the fourth collaboration between the JSE and an arts organisation following previous partnerships with the Ifa Lethu Foundation and the Market Photo Workshop. APS focuses on printmaking and its allied outreach programmes to build capacity of people to reach self-actualisation and make a difference in society. Through this partnership the JSE continues its investment into the creative economy and commitment to the development of the arts and culture sector. By fostering innovative and transformative engagement with its community, this arts initiative promotes ideas of shared prosperity, inclusion and access and stimulates discourse about issues affecting the country through contemporary art practice.

Celebrating Cinthia Sifa Mulanga: From Little Artists to Latitudes

Cinthia Sifa Mulanga, an APS graduate and emerging artists, recently invited us and the young talents from Little Artists Project for an exclusive tour of her latest solo exhibition at Latitudes. It was a touching moment for us, as Cinthia's artistic journey began at Little Artists after-school programme before she progressed to our printmaking course.

Cinthia's artwork examines themes of identity and personal history. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and later moved to South Africa, her multicultural upbringing influences her work. Through her art, Cinthia explores concepts of belonging, displacement, and self-discovery. 
Her journey from a young, aspiring artist in our programme to a celebrated professional is a testament to the transformative power of dedicated mentorship and artistic education. Bode Gallery will feature a booth dedicated to Cinthia for her solo exhibition at the Cape Town Art Fair '24. Be sure to visit them at booth TT4.  Read more about Cinthia's work here.
