Free State Art Collective

The second Free State Art Collective exhibition at Gallery2 is an exploration of new terrain contra to the art “norm”, which is currently narrative driven to the extreme. There is an overarching expectation today that work must be explained. What if we were to remove this obsession with narrative content, this need to define? Rather than curtail through explanation, let us allow the artworks to speak for themselves. Founded in 2018, the Free State Art Collective’s main purpose is to develop and support the careers of all the artists who belong as members and to raise awareness of talent in the Free State, thereby developing a more visible national presence. The Collective also aims to mentor emerging artists and to provide a network of information and opportunity, with the intention of keeping Free State artists connected to national trends and new innovations in art production and practice. FSAC currently has 36 artists as members. Image Credit: Rapuleng Production @rapulengproduction
