JUST ANOTHER BIENNALE! CAPE IS LOOKING FOR
AN ART DIRECTOR FOR A 2006 MANIFESTATION
CAPE is a biennial programme that is not just
another biennale. CAPE uses Cape Town as a
laboratory and catalyst for contemporary African
cultural interventions and art practices. Cape
critically explores the tensions between local
cultural practices and global art circuits.
CAPE is looking for an Art Director or Art
Directors' Team for its first international
art manifestation, set to take place in Cape
Town during September 2006. The Art Director
or Art Directors' Team will develop a manifestation
of art works, practices, and interventions
that engages with the texture of Cape Town,
and that explores contemporary African art
as an expansive field of practice.

edge African forums for multidisciplinarity
