The Department of Fine Arts invites you to Newwork23 Graduate Exhibition 23 November 2023 @ 18:00 Wits Art Museum, The Point of Order & ArtHouse Studios (Braamfontein, Johannesburg).

The Wits School of Arts, Fine Arts Department presents NEWWORK23, an exhibition of work by young artists in fulfilment of a BA Fine Art degree. It features 48 artists who work in a diverse range of media: performance, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, multimedia installation and interactive events. As the culmination of a fouryear process of learning, exchange, and experimentation, NEWWORK23 is an important indicator of emerging possibilities within the contemporary (South) African arts industries.

The class of 2023, as any graduating class, fearlessly makes themselves vulnerable as they sift through the debris of the last century to assemble provocations in crafting the next.

NEWWORK23 artist postcards and totes will be available for purchase at the opening event. All money raised will go towards NEWWORK24, in an ongoing culture of sharing self-raised funds from one year to the next.
