Celebrating Africa in the Cradle of Humankind...

NIROX Foundation is collaborating with Hobacity and Gauteng Tourism to invite you to another sensory Sho't Left experience – AfroSoul: Music in the Park at NIROX Sculpture Park on Sunday 6 May 2018.

 

AfroSoul music is born from Gospel, African Folk, RnB, Spirituals, and the general need to speak positivity to the people. The inaugural AfroSoul music concert will feature Vusi Nova, Kelly Khumalo, Brian Temba and Max-Hoba.

 

Spend the day with friends and family in the countryside, enjoying the music, food, art and nature. NIROX Sculpture Park's lawns, forests, waterways and collection of contemporary art are 45-minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and 15-minutes from Lanseria Airport – the R540 being an especially enjoyable stretch of country road to drive or cycle.

 

Cuisine will be courtesy of the Epicurean Emporium – a collection of high-end food traders from the growing food & design markets around Joburg. Bernie’s Bar offers craft beers, champagne, cocktails, iced teas and juices; supplemented by Flowstone Gin & Tonic Bar - locally-produced craft gins, including Bushwillow, Wild Cucumber and Marula flavours sourced in the Cradle.

 

The beginning of May ushers in Africa Month. It is also nearing the installation completion of the NIROX Winter 2018 Sculpture Exhibition NOT A SINGLE STORY, the title of which is inspired by the TED Talk given by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, positing that diversity strengthens rather than divides us. The exhibition is a collaboration with Wanås Konst sculpture park in Sweden, supported by the Swedish Post Code Foundation and The Swedish Institute.

 

It features sculptures and artworks from a mainly female selection of international artists including Esther Mahlanghu, Yoko Ono, Mary Sibande, Nandipha Mntambo, Jane Alexander, Zanele Muholi, Lubaina Himid, Ayana V Jackson, Latifa Echakhch, Nelisiwe Xaba, Beth Diane Armstrong and Bronwyn Katz.

 

The exhibition runs until the end of July 2018 and the park will be open for various other concerts, picnics, talks and workshops over that time. Watch the press…
