6 October – 3 November 2022
Exhibition opening 6 October at 6pm

Alice Gauntlett, The Garden Wall,2022

Aspire Art is pleased to host A Good Time, a group exhibition curated by Michaela Limberis.

As a dynamic and leading auction house regarded for its fresh and innovative approach to the art industry, Aspire has pioneered new market segments and areas of collecting. Since its inception, they have achieved great success with contemporary art at auction and it is against this backdrop that Aspire presents its first curated contemporary exhibition in Cape Town.

A Good Time celebrates the early careers of a group of local artists over the past decade. The exhibition is a conversation of current, formative, and exploratory works, reflecting parallel and intersecting journeys over time. This assembly of works questions the methods by which value is commonly determined and what factors may come to constitute a ‘good time’ in an artist’s career.

The title also draws attention to the social element often essential to exhibitions and engagements with art, particularly following the pandemic-induced dominance of virtual experiences.

Featured artists include Rory Emmett, Alice Gauntlett, Bonolo Kavula, Sepideh Mehraban, Heinrich Minnie, Lena Dewaegenaere, Siwa Mgoboza, Nobukho Nqaba, Gaelen Pinnock, Jake Singer and Sitaara Stodel.
