Commune.1 Gallery focuses on large format installation and sculpture, providing artists with a devoted arena for their collective ideals. It aims to provide an environment of intimate, heightened receptivity, a constantly evolving relationship
between art and spectator.
The stunning double-volume space is currently showing Christopher Swift’s first solo exhibition, Umlungu. Umlungu is a personal journey and a social comment on what it is to be a white man within a global context today. The grand scale of the installations echoes the expansive imagination of the artist who sees dreaming big as an important part of the solution to our current international concerns about food shortages, environmental impact and social harmony.
Umlungu ends on 18 October, on which date there will be an artist Walkabout at 18h00.
The next show, which is Part 1 of a two-part show, begins a week later. Part 1 is 26 October – 23 November : Nina Liebenberg “Point Counter Point” and Katherine Spindler “At Sea”.
