For one night only ordinary people will have the opportunity to watch talented artists as they create unique works of art at Artmode. This annual event, cum exhibition, showcases artists across a diversity of styles, mediums, forms and influences.
Artmode presents a behind-the-scene experience that allows people to see artists in their element and provides a platform for both established and budding creatives to express themselves in an environment that aims to inspire the ultimate space to create. Supported by the World Design Capital this project joins together multiple genres of art and music, showcasing the top talents across South Africa.
This year the Artmode event will take place, during ‘Late Thursday’ this May, at The Palms located in the heart of trendy Woodstock, Cape Town. The Palms is an architectural delight that dates back to the first quarter of the last century. The east wing ground floor venue offers 1700 square meters of space with tremendous possibilities for artists to create and exhibit. Selected tenants at the Palms will also be open to trade late that evening.
Whether it is a live performance taking the imagination to the furthest boundaries, hypnotic electronic beats setting the mood, interpretative dance expressing the range of emotion through movement or contemporary art forms that go beyond the typical forms of art as we know it, Artmode moves the boundaries of artistic expression. The line-up of participating artists is vast, and growing, and will be available on the Artmode social media channels soon.
Entrance to the event is free – provided you have registered to be on the guest list by emailing your full name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Artwork, food and beverages will be on offer at the event.
This Artmode event is proud to be in support of Camphill School and attendees will be encouraged to make a small donation towards the school at the door.
Camphill School Hermanus is a therapeutic community set in a rural environment for children and young adults with special needs.
Artwork from the Artmode exhibition will be on display to the public for a week after the event, from Thursday the 21st to Thursday the 28th of May.
