January 24 - March 22, 2015*
This exhibition explores the story of the South African print workshop—Artists Proof Studio (APS). Founded in 1991 in Johannesburg, this multi-racial, community-based arts organization has followed a trajectory of reconciliation and growth parallel to that of South Africa as a whole. The exhibition focuses on the studio as a place for professional training where a consciousness of art’s potential to contribute to social transformation is fostered. It also features some of the projects where the studio engaged the community to bring awareness to HIV/AIDS and other important social issues. Works created at APS by renown South African artists, such as William Kentridge, Bevan de Wet, and Phillomen Hlunghwani are also on view.
* The gallery will be closed February 18-22 for LMU's Spring Break
