In conversation: Four decades of artworks by current and former staff of the Rhodes University Fine Art Department

In conversation: Four decades of artworks by current and former staff of the Rhodes University Fine Art Department draws primarily from Rhodes University's extensive art collection to map four decades of artworks produced by fulltime and contract teaching staff of the RU Fine Art Department. Particular works from the collection - which was started in the 1980s by former Head of Department and founding member of the Grahamstown Group, Emeritus Professor Robert Brooks - are exhibited 'in conversation' with selected works by current staff, as testament to the significant contribution made by the Fine Art Department to the visual culture of our town, region and beyond. Conceptualised to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Rhodes University, the exhibition is curated by Dominic Thorburn, Maureen de Jager and Robyn Munnick on behalf of the RU Visual Representation, Arts and Culture Committee (VRACC), and with support from the RU Office of Equity and Institutional Culture.
