‘Letter From Cape Town’, a collaborative project connecting South Africa and the UK, was a one day exhibition that took place on 2 August, 2015.
The exhibition featured Atang Tshikari, Lin Sampson, Billy Monk, the UCT Trans Collective and the premier of a documentary shot by DAM PROJECTS over a two week period in the city.
Through attention paid to current social, economic and political developments in the city, the exhibition sought to provide a context against which developments in art, architecture and activism could be read and understood.
The documents, photographs, moving images, observations and artworks presented were what we found, borrowed, filmed, experienced or were given during our time there. As such, what we offered our audience was a glimpse into Cape Town that will hopefully encourage visitors to dig deeper into its past, present and possible future.
