A Happy New year!
We seem to be well into 2019 and it is definitely time for an update on what Assemblage is up to over the next few months.
We have been busy over the last few weeks and are in the process of finalising an exciting selection of young artists for RMB Talent Unlocked 2019 in partnership with the Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA). This programme is now in its sixth year and we are looking forward to a successful run of workshops and really great art making. The outcome will be exhibited at the RMB Turbine Art Fair in July 2019 and curated by Fulufhelo Mobadi. We will be posting regular updates on the programme so follow us on social media.
This year all of Assemblage’s activities will be based at The Coloured Cube. The Coloured Cube is a very exciting creative space based in Benrose, Johannesburg and we are looking forward to being a part of their community.
More about The Coloured Cube:
The Coloured Cube is on a mission – to change the way society perceives art and creative thinking; to show its value in problem solving in areas completely unrelated to this industry and to offer unique solutions and real engagement with people. South Africa has incredible people, talent and a wealth of culture. Sadly this sector is largely untapped by other industries and we want to change that benefiting both the client and the creative sector!
The Coloured Cube has fantastic facilities to offer the creative person including laser-cutting, hand tools, wood cutting facilities, shared maker space, wifi, a bowl turning workspace and wet casting workspace and their creative co-LAB. In addition the Assemblage library is now located at The Coloured Cube so you can also go and relax, enjoy a cup of something and spend time with some really good art books.
You can sign up as a member and for January 2019 they are offering a 25% discount on their fees.
They are open Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm.

We look forward to a successful year!
