Through a series of production-processes by the Wits Young Artists Group Show, 4th Year Fine Art Students will engage with the conventions of the “static” exhibition. The project is an ongoing process towards raising not only funds for their year end event, but a process of gaining a public identity and following.

 

Activities will include open to the public Reading Room with a Mobile Library, Film screenings, Printmaking workshops & production. Click here for more information
