Lizamore presents 35 Years: Trailblazers,

a celebration of the expansion of the art industry.

In September 2017 Lizamore & Associates hosts a group exhibition; 35 Years: Trailblazers. This exhibition continues the celebration of the gallery’s director and curator; Teresa Lizamore’s 35-year anniversary in the art industry.

Earlier this year, the gallery exhibited 35 Years: A Lizamore Perspective, an acclaimed exhibition that featured a selection of artists which represent an overview of Lizamore’s career. Whereas 35 Years: A Lizamore Perspective was a reminiscent glimpse of Lizamore’s time in the industry, she reasserts her gaze with the curation of 35 Years: Trailblazers to look toward the future of the South African contemporary art industry. The exhibition showcases a selection of artists that represent a new wave of South African contemporary art. These artists, hand-picked by Lizamore, have shown potential to have a noteworthy impact on the progression and expansion of the contemporary South African art landscape.

Selected works are representative of each artist’s art-making and their contribution to the budding South African art industry. This exhibition unfolds in a vast variety of mediums and styles, illustrating the many layers of the current contemporary art landscape. Artists on exhibition include: Sam Allerton, Audrey Anderson, Vusi Beauchamp, Bev Butkow, Lizette Chirrime, Mandy Coppes Martin, Ronel de Jager, Bevan de Wet, Adriaan Diedericks, Justin Dingwall, Fleur du Bondt, Mandy Johnston, Lebohang Kganye, Banele Khoza, Vivian Kohler, Asanda Kupa, Kgaogelo Mash, Tsoku Maela, Peter Mammes, Lekau Matsena, Tshepo Mosopa, Lorenzo Nassimbeni, Lwandiso Njara, Michael Selekane, Paul Senyol, Senzo Shabangu, JM Tshikhuthula, MJ Turpin and Sophia van Wyk.
