Keyes Art Mile launches an annual series of art talks, Talking Art at Keyes, with the inaugural edition featuring visual artist and filmmaker Michael MacGarry.
Talking Art at Keyes provides guests with an opportunity to engage in robust discussions about how art informs, challenges and moves people. The series explores ways in which art gives the artistic community a voice – a platform to comment, express, interpret and interrogate with a freedom that is so often inhibited or censored by more traditional forms of expression.
MacGarry screens his film Parang alongside Flies and The Battles, as well as discussing his new exhibition. The conversation is moderated by Lunetta Bartz, the founder of MAKER (a multidisciplinary design studio and art book publisher based in Johannesburg). Afterwards, Mpumi and Tshepang from the BLK JKS perform a duo DJ set, while guests get the chance to mix and mingle.
Venue: Keyes Art Mile, Trumpet Building, 19 Keyes Ave, Rosebank, Johannesburg
Time: 6pm to 8pm
