‘Shift’ a group exhibition opened on Wed 31 August and ran until 17 September. The exhibition explored ideas of creativity, innovation and how art shifts perceptions, thoughts and our view of the world. Art is capable of changing the way we act, what we think, how we interact with one another and what we see around us. In this age of information overload how can art be used to mediate, to make sense of and to shift our worldviews. The exhibition showcased the Assemblage project space for the first time and was part of the Art Week Joburg programme. The exhibition was beautifully put together and well received.
