DON'T/PANIC

SKU: V6370
DON'T/PANIC brings together many powerful voices as it engages African artists dealing with the current ecological situation. Many of these voices are critical; sometimes overt, sometimes subtle, sometimes humorous, sometimes standing as an indictment.

DON'T/PANIC brings together many powerful voices as it engages African artists dealing with the current ecological situation. Many of these voices are critical; sometimes overt, sometimes subtle, sometimes humorous, sometimes standing as an indictment. Some of the works may raise awareness, others offer a vision; some may simply be poetic statements.

DON'T/PANIC contributes to the dialogue around culture and climate change by adding a unique African artistic perspective to the discussion, with written contributions by Gabi Ngcobo, Nomaduma Masilela, Sean Slemon, Sean O’Toole and Jyoti Mistry.

The Goethe-Institut South Africa and the Heinrich-Böll Foundation have partnered to commission the DON'T/PANIC exhibition, taking place at the Durban Art Gallery from 23 November 2011 – timed to coincide with the COP17 Climate Change conference.  This book accompanies the exhibition.
