Gig Guide – What To Do In And Around Jozi This Weekend
Published 10 months ago by

The first Friday of the month of love is here and we are ready to step in the name of love. 

February AKA The Month of Love seems to be in a rush, and we are loving it. 

We have compiled a few gigs for you to check out this weekend. 

There’s a new hangout spot in Rosebank, aptly named The Greenhouse Bar because of the lush greenery used as décor. It is an urban oasis, offering an escape from the chaotic urban jungle.  This Friday they have Kimmy K on the decks.

Everard Read's CIRCA Gallery is delighted to invite you to an exhibition of prints by Blessing Ngobeni entitled 'Study Song of Chokote' Saturday, 18 January 2020 2 Jellicoe Avenue Rosebank, 2196 This new series of hand-coloured linocuts is based on Blessing Ngobeni’s 2016 exhibition at Everard Read’s CIRCA gallery, THE SONG OF THE CHICOTTE. Four years later, Ngobeni has revisited that powerful series and reproduced the artworks from that seminal show in the medium of print. The linocuts offer a graphic reinterpretation of Ngobeni’s large, bold, and complex collages on canvas – rendering the familiar images in softer tones of blues, purples and greys. The linocuts offer an intimate conversation with the artist, a quiet moment to reflect on his past statements, future ambitions and immediate realities. #everardread #johannesburg #capetown #london #franschhoek #everardreadcapetown #everardreadlondon #everardreadjohannesburg #everardreadfranschhoek #blessingngobeni #sbya #linocut #contemporary #artwork #artistsoninstagram #finearts #africanart
