From 17 Novem­ber to 8 De­cem­ber, the Univer­sity of Cape Town’s Irma Stern Mu­seum is pre­sent­ing Artist’s Tex­tiles, a two-part ex­hi­bi­tion cu­rated by artist, en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist and tex­tile de­signer David Bel­lamy of bbel­lamy & bbel­lamy. Form­ing the first part of the ex­hi­bi­tion will be a group show in the mu­seum’s large gallery, where artists such as Cebo Mvubu, Ruan Hoff­man and The Keiskamma Art Project will re­veal their process in cre­at­ing a tex­tile based on an art­work. The sec­ond part will con­sist of an in­stal­la­tion in the smaller gallery spa­ces that will merge art and de­sign by show­cas­ing tra­di­tional fine-art means of mak­ing used to pro­duce tex­tiles com­bined with tex­tile-based works by Bel­lamy’s ar­ti­sanal stu­dio. The ex­hi­bi­tion marks the launch of the Mu­seum of Mak­ing and To­mor­row, whose main goal is to raise aware­ness about sus­tain­able de­sign prac­tices, con­sumer re­spon­si­bil­ity and the de­vel­op­ment of so­lu­tion-based pro­duc­tion meth­ods. ir­mas­tern.co.za, bbel­lamyandbbel­lamy.com
