Heliostat: Wim Botha Exhibition Opening and Talk

September 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free with museum admission

Heliostat: Wim Botha brings together key works in the South African artist’s career spanning two decades and is organised around the idea of refraction. Refraction, as understood in optics, is the transformation of light, the increasing or decreasing of its wavelengths, as it passes through a material, such as glass or a prism. We perceive this change in wavelengths as either the splitting of light into its visible spectrum, a rainbow, or the bending or distortion of an object, as in a glass of water.

Join us in celebrating the opening of the exhibition with a Talk with art critic Liese Van Der Watt, writer Ashraf Jamal, curator Owen Martin and artist Wim Botha at 4 PM on Saturday, 29 September followed by an opening reception.

It will be appropriate for all ages and no formal art education is required.
