This half day tour takes guests into the studios of fine artists in Cape Town for a totally fresh and contemporary look at the local art world. We start with a visit to a gallery, maybe the Stevenson, one of the top galleries in the city, maybe the Association for the Visual Arts, it all depends on what is showing. Then we meet a local grafitti artist and are hosted for a street art tour in Woodstock, one of the country’s street art capital, delving deep into the works themselves, public space as gallery space, and the tensions between art, capital and property. We finish with a visit to an artist in their studio, for insight into their work, and into the art scene as a whole.
