Building up...the After Math Exhibition!!!!

Time is-a-ticking and there is very little time before the opening night of the After Math exhibition. August 16th is only 8 days away!!

Currently, we are working feverishly on the building up and preparation of the After Math gallery space, the Round Room at the Apartheid Museum.

In the pics below are two members from the Blackbird Projects team; Sulaiman Nazier and Argyris Papageorgiou, constructing one of eight plinths. Besides for plinths, there are also a number of wall mounted installations, as well as projections of video works.  Blackbird Projects have generously sponsored their time and expertise in installing and co-curating the show. NEC and Peripheral Vision sponsored the use of their state-of-the-art projectors; and Aluvault the use of a nifty projector stand.  There links appear below.
