VSDB was commissioned in 2016 to co-curate, build partnerships and co-ordinate an exhibition which was organised at the Bag Factory in Johannesburg, South Africa in September 2016 under the auspices of Professor Duncan Higgins. The exhibition was entitled CLASH and included the work of 12 artists.
The exhibited material is part of an on-going artistic research inquiry exploring themes of intercultural dialogue, the role of the artist as advocate and the role that art practices, artistic methodologies and artefacts play in representing unseen, hidden and overlooked ‘clashes’ of conflict.
This may address or respond to questions inherent in creative production itself or actions to produce art, the use of materials, images, and/or address historical or political episodes. Rather than offering fixed positions, the aim is to create an imaginative and creative space for the tension and clash between conflicting ideas and investigation to be explored through discussion.
