Located in the historic centre of the city, 99 Loop will open its doors with a group exhibition that is a nod to its surroundings – the city of Cape Town itself. 

 

Stemming from the idea that making a mark on canvas is akin to moving across a landscape, the artists included in the group exhibition have explored different aspects of the city through their work – historical, personal, geographical or architectural.

A multi-faceted and contentious place, Cape Town could never be encapsulated in a single body of work. 99 Loop instead offers a look at how living here shapes artistic gesture, whether it’s through the choice of medium (as in Adriaan Diedericks’s installation made of reclaimed timber from the gallery building) or Johnson Tsoku Maela's photographic portraits in contentious historical places.

The artists have responded in various media in a way that both challenges our views of the city and delights in its eccentricities.
