The opening night last Wednesday was attended by a hundred Capetonians that braved the weather to view some "fine art". It might almost be snowing, but it's always spring at blank projects: Norman O'Flynn's Butterfly Project
Gabrielle Alberts curated a coherent museum-quality show with fleamarket art by Sunday painters...
blank projects is an artist-run project space in Cape Town which encourages experimentation, diversity and dialogue in contemporary African art.
In association with Pro Helvetia and The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, blank projects also hosts and administers residencies for visiting artists to promote much needed dialogue and cultural exchange between Southern Africa and Europe. Recently blank has begun working together with the Goethe Institut with a view to developing relationships with German artists and institutions as well.
Since 2005 blank has hosted over 60 exhibitions & projects, and nine residencies for international artists.
