BRUNDYN+ is pleased to present Brundyn Talks, a series of monthly talks, which will be held at the gallery’s video room. The talks are a platform for the public to engage with interdisciplinary discourse presented by artists, curators, academics, literary scholars, musicians and filmmakers to name but a few.
The first talk was held by Chad Rossouw, gallery artist and Ruth Prowse lecturer. It was a contemplation of the anti-Sublime, the South Easter in Cape Town, ruins as allegory, the disappointed Romantic, and bleakness as an aesthetic strategy in the work of photographers like Pieter Hugo, Vincent Bezuidenhout and Cameron Platter's strange recent foray into the photographic medium.
Entrance to the talks is free; however, please RSVP to email@example.com to book, as seats are limited.
