CREATIVE Feel in partnership with FADA Gallery will host the inaugural South African Contemporary Jewellery Awards Exhibition. The awards exhibition aims to bring together established jewellers, including young and aspiring artists, in the creation of one-of-a-kind expressive or installation pieces. There are no limitations as artists are called upon to visualize and realise their ideas. The winner and runner-up of the competition will be announced at a gala awards ceremony on 15 March 2018 after which the South African Contemporary Jewellery Awards Exhibition will open at the FADA Gallery on the Bunting Road Campus of the University of Johannesburg.

2017/8 Thuthuka Jewellery Award’s Exhibition.
The Thuthuka Jewellery Development Programme is proud to present an exhibition of jewellery designed by students from the community schools and universities across the country. This annual exhibition celebrates an extraordinary mentorship programme that focusses on design and manufacturing skills development. The competition enables each student's design ability; to explore their creativity using silver and other precious metals.

The Thuthuka Jewellery Awards theme for 2017/18 was interesting and personal. The theme “Origins”, referred the students to explore their own cultural roots, traditions and experiences. This has resulted in unique designs and manufacturing techniques. The design diversity and beauty of the jewellery and tableware created will make for an interesting and stimulating exhibition this year.

13 April – 31 May
Black Chronicles IV

Black Chronicles IV, an exhibition curated by Renée Mussai (Senior Curator and Head of Archive & Research at Autograph ABP) at the FADA Gallery. This VIAD facilitated exhibition centres on the visual presence of black figures in Victorian Britain through the prism of studio photography, the exhibition explores politics of subjectivity, representation and agency, and continues Autograph ABP’s critical mission of annotating the cultural histories of photography by addressing its ‘missing chapters’, in tandem with VIAD’s focus on historical redress within photographic archives and the role of positionalities in their production and reception. Black Chronicles IV will also feature the sound-image installation The African Choir 1891 Re-Imagined (songs composed by Phillip Miller & Thuthuka Sibisi) and a special display of The Paris Albums 1900, with more than 200 photographic reproductions from W.E.B. Du Bois’s groundbreaking exhibit at the 1900 Paris Exposition.
Using the exhibition and photographic portraiture as a departure point, a VIAD organised conference will build upon a critical rethinking of curatorial practice, as traditionally bound to a colonial logic of collection, arrangement, ‘safe-keeping’ and display.
