KIRSTEN SIMS at the Alison Milne Gallery in Toronto, Canada

Salon Ninety One gallery artist KIRSTEN SIMS is currently having her second solo exhibition, titled, CLOSED FOR THE SEASON, at the Alison Milne Gallery in Toronto, Canada.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT | ‘Closed for the Season’ is a visual exploration of my time doing an artist’s residency at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands. I arrived from South Africa in mid-October at a time when the island was just starting to shut down for the season. At home in Cape Town, our seasonal changes aren’t as obvious and I have loved watching and feeling the transition happening around me here. It is especially obvious on the Island where it is clear that a summer has just happened here: closed amusement parks, empty pools, abandoned beach balls, a lost flip-flop. I decided to use the ‘ghosts of summer past’ as my point of departure for this body of work and have collected visual references from my adventures around the Island and the city over the past few weeks. As always in my work, the themes are as varied as the weather and my mood, and range from skinny-dipping to sunsets, sailboats and shindigs.  – Kirsten Sims, October 2018

 

The exhibition will be on view from the 14th of November until the 22nd of December 2018. Please contact the Alison Milne Gallery for further information: gallery@alisonmilne.com

FOLKLORE

01.12.18 – 2019

SALON NINETY ONE End-of-year salon-style group show in aid of True North

Accessible, affordable artwork across a broad range of mediums by some of Salon Ninety One’s favourite emerging and established creatives. This year our Gallery and Exhibiting Artists will be donating ten percent of all artwork sales to the True North Organisation. Spoil yourself or a loved one with that special one-of-a-kind artwork and make a difference to the life of someone much younger and less fortunate. True North is a non-profit organisation that is pioneering Early Childhood Development (ECD) initiatives within marginalised communities.The historical lack of adequate provisioning of basic services to poor communities manifests itself within all spheres of society, ultimately resulting in a vast loss of human potential. The long-term ripple effects of inequality includes increased rates of unemployment, disease, substance abuse and the fragmentation of family units, and unfortunately young children are the most at risk. An incredible developmental window of opportunity exists within these early years, and it rapidly diminishes with age. This potential for growth into a “whole” person is not limited to academic development, but encompasses every part of the child’s world. As we celebrate ten wonderful years of Salon Ninety One, we recognise the light, love and hard work that has gone into building the True North organisation since 2007. Join Salon91 and our generous young artists this festive season in our quest to give the Vrygrond community and the youth of our country a brighter future.

TURBINE ART FAIR 2018

Booth Number GH13 | Turbine Hall | Johannesburg

Salon Ninety One is a Cape Town based gallery, presenting works by emerging and established contemporary artists of all disciplines, passionate about developing a new brand of local talent. The gallery specializes in accessible contemporary South African Art, Design and illustration. Founded during 2008 by Monique du Preez, (Married name, Foord), curator and director to the space and its highly energized exhibition program. The gallery presented a selection of contemporary work ranging from painting, textile, print, drawing, and to a smaller degree photography and sculpture, with a special emphasis on collaborative projects and bridging the traditional divide between disciplines. Salon91 offered international and local collectors, as well as first-time buyers unique investment opportunities into the emerging South African art market.

Salon Ninety One exhibited at the Turbine Art Fair at the Turbine Hall in Johannesburg, South Africa, for the fifth consecutive year. Visitors to the gallery’s booth did enjoy works by their regular Salon Ninety One TAF favourites such as Amber Moir, Andrew Sutherland, Black Koki, Bruce Mackay, Cathy Layzell, Georgina Berens, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Mareli Esterhuizen, Paul Senyol, Heidi Fourie, and Zarah Cassim, to mention only a few, as well as exciting newcomers to the fair, including Chloe Townsend, Berry Meyer, Katrine Claassens, Lili Probart, Matthew Prins, NEBNIKRO, Renée Rossouw, Sarah Pratt, Tara Deacon & more. Expect to see collage, painting, photography, ceramics, monotypes, reverse glass works, and drawings, executed in a rich winter’s palette, articulated with cool midnight hues, and bursts of warm jewel colours. The space did feature large and medium sized works by the various exhibiting artists, as well as two group projects, including a collection of diminutive works.
