No Man’s Art Gallery presents The Collaborative Spirit, an exhibition that explores the driving force of printmaking in a South African context.

KENTRIDGE.ZAMflyer kentridge zam

Print is a much loved and widely used artistic medium in South Africa and played an important role in the development of the local art history. Collaboration between (master) printers, students and artists is the foundation of print studios, where the collaborative practices create space for dialogue and exchange in artistic knowledge and skills. Print studios have fostered democratization of the artistic contribution of South African art.

All artists participating in this exhibition are connected to South African print studios that produce limited print editions of local and international artists. A wide array of printmakers will be exhibited, including Lehlogonolo Mashaba, Mongezi Ncaphpayi, Senzo Shabangu and Themba Khumalo.

NMAG is honoured to present six prints from the NOSE series by internationally renowned artist William Kentridge. The works were kindly made available by David Krut Projects in Johannesburg, where they were editioned. With Kentridge’s current multidisciplinary presence in Amsterdam, The Collaborative Spirit highlights another medium within the artist’s oeuvre.
