As a new beginning is offered with the start of a new year, we remain impacted and by the challenges and triumphs of the year just past. At Eclectica Contemporary, we are proud to present a new exhibition format that marries contemporary art alongside notable contemporary African designers, ceramicists and creatives in conversation with the gallery’s collection of iconic mid-century modern and vintage furniture pieces. Titled 11:11, we present a group exhibition that is an open ended experimentation with contemporary design aesthetics, local creators and collaborators, the exhibition will continue for an extended period, with new pieces being included and rotated in the space continuously. Artworks shown alongside iconic furniture pieces and contemporary local design artefacts all draw inspiration from nature with an emphasis on sustainability.
