Proclamation is an interactive residency that will result in less a show, or an exhibition, and more the manifestation of research processes, conversations and collaboration between participating artists and Rera Letsema.
Through collaboration between the artists and Rera Letsema, an exploration of various modes of creative collaborative research as well as the use of virtual spaces as platforms for research, the production of the residence will be presented both as individual and as a part of a whole; to show the multiple facets of the creative productions of emerging practitioners in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Proclamation is an interactive residency that will result in less a show, or an exhibition, and more the manifestation of research processes, conversations, and collaborations between participating artists and Rera Letsema. We set out to have an engagement with audiences and participants through different channels, and it is due to this that we produced a series of podcasts which function as discussion forums that not only exist in the virtual space for accessibility, but to also allow for an independence from some institutional frameworks. This is also to acknowledge the virtual online space as a pivotal space for research and engagement from young practitioners in different spaces.
This project was made possible through the support of Keleketla! Library.
