Romulus Rebus | Group Exhibition
1 June (18:00) – 15 June 2017
at Priest Gallery and Espressobar, 142 Jan Smuts Ave, Johannesburg
Romulus Rebus; a group exhibition imaging ‘the’ empire. Through the hands and minds of a selection of artists, “A Romulus Rebus” hopes to make manifest the indelible stigmata of old empires, to identify the lurching movements of the new empires, to scratch at the masks of its Ideologies and discourses of control. Finally; to lay bare the intimate desires and fears that motivate this inhumane expression of humanity.
