From Football to Fine Art - A Celebration of South African Art

These past few weeks have been an unforgettable experience for all South Africans: the much-awaited arrival of leading football teams from 32 countries, to take part in the 64-game, 2010 FIFA World Cup, hosted by South Africa!

It has been a singular honour, a mega-event of stellar proportions, an impossible dream miraculously come true. Unthinkable in Africa until now, this has been an extraordinary event to celebrate and remember!

How memorable too, and how symbolic, was the opening ceremony, held in Soweto's giant Soccer City Stadium, overflowing with a capacity crowd of some 90000 spectators - local and international. Can we ever forget this scenario: the brilliant, African colours, the music, the flags, and the incessant drone of the ubiquitous Vuvuzelas, the painted faces, the choreography, the exotic outfits, makaraba headgear and ludicrously oversized glasses - and the whole, uncontainable excitement of a once-in-a-lifetime occasion: a true celebration of South Africa and its diverse cultures!

What has been extraordinary, as well, has been the explosion of innovative, World Cup- related art and craft - from all over South Africa, and in every conceivable medium - particularly the superb, imaginative beadwork, which is a major aspect of South Africa's rich, cultural heritage. Visitors and locals alike have been spoilt for choice: even much of the commercially produced memorabilia has been of a noticeably high standard.

Rose Korber Art joins in celebrating the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and is proud to present a selection of quality artworks, original prints, photography, ceramics and traditional and contemporary beadwork by leading artists, including William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengethwa, Willie Bester, Anton Kannemeyer, Norman Catherine, Tommy Motswai, Wendy Anziska, Susan Woolf, Robert Slingsby, Stephen Inggs, Dale Yudelman, John Moore and others. Ceramic artists of note include Kendal Warren (see her Soccer Ball plate) and Zizamele Ceramics (with their novel Bambanani bowl with 12 soccer players).

A selection of original, hand-made, museum-quality beadwork pieces ('ncekas') by the doyen of Shangaan beadworkers, Jane Makhubele, are also on view, including her iconic, beaded Mandela shirts and her beaded soccer-shirts and national flags. She has also produced, for this special occasion, a striking limited-edition, original print of a beaded football player, entitled 'Vavi from Spain'.

There is also an array of traditional dolls from different areas in South Africa: Ntwana dolls, Shangaan dolls and Ndebele dolls, resplendent in their beaded attire. Beaded animals - both exotic and quirky - from the Cape Town-based, internationally renowned Monkeybiz project round off the feast of beadwork.

Of much interest, too, are works by Johannesburg artist, Susan Woolf, who was commissioned to design the SA Commemorative Stamp for 2010. This year's stamps were based on her enormous research into the culture of the 'Taxi Hand Signs' - a 'language' used extensively in Gauteng in particular

Come and celebrate with us the wealth of South African art and craft: it is truly a 'moveable feast'! Long may our joyous spirit continue, and the effect of change influence our attitudes and lives!
