2019 Bag Factory Artists’ Studios Annual Report

DIRECTOR’S INTRODUCTION

It was a bitter-sweet year at the Bag Factory as we celebrated many achievements, most especially securing our future by starting the formal process of purchasing the building the Bag Factory has called home for almost 30 years. Sadly, we also mourned the passing of our co-founder and celebrated South African artist Dr David Koloane, preceded by the sudden passing of Bag Factory alumni artist Benon Lutaaya. Both artists have contributed enormously to an inclusive and transformed art industry in South Africa and their absence is a loss to all who knew them. In March we bid farewell to outgoing Chairperson Makgati Molebatsi, who stepped down from the board after ten years of service to the Bag Factory. In her stead we welcomed Veronica King as our new Chairperson, and Zachary Isdahl as Vice Chairperson, bringing revitalised energy to the board. We also bid farewell to Pierre Lombard. Our small team of staff, formed mid-2018, remained stable and consistent, successfully delivering a busy and exciting creative programme throughout the year. Through our visiting artist programme we hosted six artists from Iceland, the DRC, Algeria, Uganda, Sweden, and a curator from Zimbabwe. Two South African artists joined us through our self-funded Artist in Residence programme. Twenty-one artists and an emerging curator benefitted from our various

development programmes, including the prestigious Cassirer Welz Award and David Koloane Award which reached their nine and ten year milestones respectively. Highlights of the year include the overwhelmingly well-attended Rorke’s Drift, Histories and pedagogies – stories told and not yet told symposium hosted in partnership with Wits School of Art and the Swedish Embassy in Pretoria; incredibly powerful performances by David Koloane Award recipients Helena Uambembe, Wezile Mgibe and Oupa Sibeko at FNB Art Joburg and the Underline Show; and the launch of Art Connection Africa, a new collaboration between KfW Stiftung and Triangle Network to foster visual art exchanges, capacity building and informal learning activities within Sub-Saharan Africa. Out of this first programme, curator Fadzai Muchemwa (Zimbabwe) produced the publication Curating Johannesburg: rest.less, under siege / in transition.

We are encouraged by these new partnerships and strengthening of existing relationships as we embark on a capital campaign to develop our building and a sustainable organisation with renewed vision in 2020. The future certainly looks bright! CANDICE ALLISON, DIRECTOR 4

ABOUT THE BAG FACTORY

The Bag Factory is a non-profit contemporary visual art organisation in Newtown, Johannesburg. We provide studio space to a cross-generational group of Johannesburg-based artists. We also host a prestigious international artists’ residency programme, alongside regular exhibitions that showcase new work by emerging artists to the wider public. All our programmes are accompanied by events and outreach projects that encourage greater understanding of contemporary visual art and stimulate interaction between artists and the local community.

With a pioneering almost 30-year history of providing a supportive infrastructure for artists, the Bag Factory is unique in combining art making with cultural debate and art exhibitions, thereby creating a fertile international environment for experimentation, innovation and critical dialogue between creatives in South Africa and the rest of the world. We are affiliated with the international Triangle Network.

WHAT WE DO

The Bag Factory emerged at a time of historical change in South Africa. Established in 1991, it was the first permanent art space to bring together visual artists from all ethnic, cultural and educational backgrounds. Almost 30 years on, we remain committed to the founding principals of inclusion and diversity, which are reflected across all our activities and programmes.

Our exhibitions and audience engagement programme crucially bring contemporary art to our local community and the wider public through free events including talks, seminars and open studios.

Our fifteen studios for Johannesburg-based artists are equally distributed between emerging, mid-career and established artists, creating opportunities for inter-generational learning and knowledgeexchange. In addition, the Bag Factory hosts LL Editions, the only black-owned fine art lithography print studio in South Africa. In addition, two studios are reserved for our residency programme, which provides studio space and facilitates art making, research and networking for international artists, 46% of which come from the rest of the African continent. We support artist development by providing studio bursaries for young women artists and host the prestigious David Koloane and Cassirer Welz Awards, which offer career- defining mentorship for emerging South Africa-based artists.

01 JUL – 17 SEP 2019

29 AUG – 28 OCT 2019

Stacey’s residency was part of the Absa L’Atelier First Merit Award, she received in 2018. Her work can be viewed as a mirror of her past memories, specifically as an African young woman, as well as a continuous exploration of her personal experiences within the communities she inhabits. Her art probes unsettling narratives on the subject of identity, gender, spirituality and cultural mysticism, including the past and present.

Ishizuka’s residency was made possible by the Swedish arts organisation, IASPIS (International Artists Studio Programme). Having lived in various cities and societies, Mako’s work plays with different ideas around culture, language, class, architecture, and geography and seeks to “translate” some of these ideas as a way of sharing experiences. Ishizuka held two workshops titled Verbal Acts & Graphic Movements before her residency ended. 35
