William Kentridge: Studio Life Series

For William Kentridge, COVID-19 lockdown was an opportunity to re-examine his own artistic practice and the very nature of the creative process. Kentridge has dedicated himself to making a series of films called Studio Life focusing on the place of production, confinement and sanctuary for an artist: the studio. A series of photogravure images, each directly connected to a film, is being created simultaneously in collaboration with David Krut Workshop.

Vusi Beauchamp – ‘The Cult of One’

Vusi Beauchamp’s provocative iconography employs popular culture, satire and stereotypes in service of a visual political commentary. He seeks to examine the post-apartheid South African government embattled within itself, the disconnect with its people and our vexed social climate under this new viral threat, mired by false news and heightened insecurities over corruption.

Heidi Fourie Residency 2022

Artist Heidi Fourie explored a recent return to the medium of drawing and the drawn mark in a residency at the David Krut Workshop in Arts on Main in 2022. She was also introduced to the technique of softground etching, producing a series of new editions.

Maaike Bakker “An answer to an unknown question”

Maaike Bakker’s exhibition 'An answer to an unknown question' presents a showcase of unique work on paper made in collaboration with the David Krut Workshop. Maaike plays with abstraction in her work, seeking to depict scenes from alternate realities.

Parallel Process

David Krut Gallery and FORMS Gallery are pleased to present 'Parallel Process' - an exhibition of new unique works on paper and paintings by Matty Monethi, Khotso Motsoeneng and Adrian Fortuin. 'Parallel Process' emerged out of a collaboration between the two organisations centred around the activities and skills transfer opportunities presented by the David Krut Workshop in downtown Johannesburg.

Maja Maljević ‘Based on a true story’

David Krut Projects is pleased to present a new solo project by Maja Maljevic titled Based on a true story. The exhibition showcases a new body of works on paper unlike any other the artist has produced before, and paintings that form a counterpoint to the prints. The large-scale works on paper made at the David Krut Workshop are created in muted monochrome, with selected primary-coloured elements popping out of the composition, or floating on the surface. In limiting the colour palette, and choosing to re-combine a selection of the same elements in a number of different ways, light is shed on the choreography of the dance Maljević is engaged in with each shape, colour, line or technique.
