On Wednesday 20 November 2019, Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation opened the doors to its public art exhibition, titled “On Main Road”, to contribute uniquely to the national discussion on inequality.
The exhibition is part of the 15th anniversary commemoration activities of the Foundation.
It allows us to commemorate an important milestone with a public event,” said the CEO of the Foundation, Mmabatho Maboya.
“We give thanks for 15 years of a sustained and meaningful record of programme implementation to improve lives through education and small business development,” she said.
The exhibition features works of fine art, posters, photography, video, craft and design. Over 70 works by some of South Africa’s most compelling emerging and established artists speak to the themes of inequality, inclusion and exclusion, fragmentation and cohesion, borders and boundaries.
Explaining the choice of theme for the exhibition, Maboya said “itspeaks to our formal purpose, which is to foster the development of an inclusive society that is empowered.
“The exhibition evokes a thoughtful interrogation of the “main road” that divides and connects us,”she said.
