We’ve been keeping busy with watching the games, yes, but there are also some other fabulous things going on as well. In Jozi there are some great art exhibitions asking for our attention in the hours not spent with eyes glued to the screen. One of them is PACE2010, which is a collection of handmade contemporary designs from around the continent. It’s at the Craft Design Centre just behind the library on Nelson Mandela Square. These are just some of the whimsical designs:
From the House of Fire in Swaziland
Blue Lotus Tin-Tin Vase from Ivory Coast
South African Ronel Jordaan’s Felt Chair
The curators Adam Levin and Andile Magengelele say they wanted to challenge traditional ideas of what curios are. So if you have any friends who want to take home some nifty African-inspired pieces, try this spot.
