Rhodes Fine Art
Graduate Showcase 2022
A MESSAGE FROM THE BFA CLASS OF 2022
As we, the class of 2022, approach the end of our Bachelor of Fine Art degree, it is bittersweet to say the least. After four years of sleepless nights spent in and out of the studio, a global pandemic as well as personal and academic challenges, we are able to proudly stand together and utter the following phrase, “we made it”.
As a class and as individuals, we are not only grateful but fortunate to be gifted with the opportunity to present our artwork in front of family, art practitioners and friends. It truly has been a moment that we have patiently awaited.
The exhibitions presented to you are inclusive of a variety of media and themes: coloured identity, violence against womxn, societal issues within South Africa, family politics, heritage, illness, religion, isolation and race. Each space within the Monument has been explicitly chosen by the students to present these themes and provide a holistic experience to our audience.
As emerging artists, we trust that you, as the viewer, walk into the space with an open mind and engage freely with the artworks on display.
With love and gratitude,
The Graduate Class of 2022
