Art Crawl: Tangled Nation
In this exclusive, curated ‘art-crawl’ – centred on the Women’s Work exhibition currently at the Iziko South African National Gallery – Corrigall first outlines the historic influences on this textile-driven turn in contemporary art. In an easy and accessible manner, she offers a wider historical context and extends the craft/art debate beyond gender lines.

Robin Rhode – Path and Fields
Rhode makes drawings spontaneously, whether he works on paper, canvas, the walls of Johannesburg or the walls inside the gallery. He acts like a composer in assembling this exhibition, bringing together individual pieces that range from the peculiar, muted and elusive to the expressive, effervescent and even boisterous.
