X-CAPE: Call for Entries 2007

CAPE Africa Platform (CAPE) invites artists and cultural practitioners from across Cape Town and South Africa to participate in X-CAPE, the artist-led initiative of the TRANS CAPE exhibition. The deadline for entry has been extended to 20 January 2007 to allow X-CAPE artists more time to secure venues for participation.
In line with CAPE Africa Platform?s broad focus on contemporary African culture, X-CAPE welcomes participation of practitioners and projects from any creative genre; exhibitions, events, music, film and performances, to street art and poetry which engage with contemporary African creativity and coincide with the TRANS CAPE exhibition.
TRANS CAPE is the first in a series of large-scale arts events organised by the CAPE Africa Platform. The exhibition brings some of the most innovative and challenging contemporary African art to Cape Town. Over 60 artists from 19 African countries are participating in the exhibition from 24 March to 02 May, 2007. Next year?s event will be held in over 20 venues and sites along a cultural route that spans the Cape Metropolitan area. Expect to see art at an array of unexpected public, private, outdoor venues and sites.
X-CAPE invites artists and cultural practitioners to interact with TRANS CAPE?s local and international audience, which is expected to include leading curators, critics and journalist from across the globe. ?X-CAPE contributes significantly to some of CAPE?s core objectives of growing networks and developing audiences for a sustainable local art market. It is therefore an intrinsic part of TRANS CAPE,? says Mirjam Asmal-Dik, CAPE?s newly appointed CEO.
CAPE will assist artists and projects with administrative and marketing support. CAPE is currently seeking corporate sponsors who will support the X-CAPE programme and Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) will contribute to the costs of marketing for X-CAPE. All participating events will be included in the TRANS CAPE Pocket Guide Book given to all visitors to the exhibition.
To participate in X-CAPE artists must return their registration forms by 20 January 2007.
Registration forms are available online on www.capeafrica.org or email a request to X-CAPE Coordinator Storm Janse van Rensburg on storm {AT} capeafrica.org.
