Venue: Oliewenhuis Art Museum

 Fear and Loss - Industrial Karoo curated by Katie Barnard du Toit opens at 19:00 in the Reservoir at Oliewenhuis Art Museum.

This exhibition represents a contribution of artworks by artists all over South Africa who are concerned about the Karoo ecology.

An underlying concern of this body of work relates to the postmodern conditions of consumerism and capitalism, which appear to be the driving force behind the proposed exploration of shale gas in the larger Karoo basin.

The exhibition will consist of installations as well as framed artworks and runs until 31 August 2014.
