Genevieve MCC honoured to be part of The Shining Girls Charity Art Show for Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust.

Genevieve MCC will be supporting this event with bubbles, we are honoured and proud to be part of this sure success!

Award-winning author Lauren Beukes, and design curator and consultant, Jacki Lang, have come together to  create an exciting charity art show as part of The Book Lounge’s Open Book Festival. The event, loosely themed around Beukes’s international hit novel, The Shining Girls, will showcase amazing local talent, with all proceeds going to Rape Crisis. The team approached a selection of over 50 hand-picked South African artists, designers, illustrators, photographers and even jewellery designers to participate in the collaborative exhibition. The artists were sent pages that had been ripped out of the book and invited to create new and original pieces of art with them – inspired by the many themes the book invites: from the loops and tangles of history and time travel through to all the eras the book encompasses: from 1930s burlesque to 1990s punk.

The Exhibition:

All the works will be framed and sold with 100% of the proceeds going to Rape Crisis. We’re hoping to raise    R50 000. In the interests of making the artwork accessible to the widest audience and raising as much money as possible, all the works will be sold at the same very affordable price of R1000 each. The exhibition will enable art lovers to purchase original new works from some of South Africa’s most talented artists. It’s also an opportunity for artists to create new pieces outside of their existing portfolios. How each artist responds to the brief and the vastly varied creations that come out of it are part of what makes the the show so interesting.

The Artists:

Lauren Beukes and Jacki Lang put together a wish-list of South African artists across various disciplines from illustration and painting to sculpture, street art and jewellery design, asking them to create an original work they would be willing to donate for the show. 
Over 50 responded with surprising, inventive, playful and beautiful pieces, using illustration, painting, laser- cutting, foil, cross-stitch, leather-work, Perspex and engraving. 
Some of the contributing artists include: Zapiro, Conrad Botes, Faith 47, Brett Murray, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Roger Ballen, Serge Alain Nitigeka, Wim Botha, Claudette Schreuders, Cameron Platter, Gabby Raaff, Frank van Reenen, Jordan Metcalf, Liza Grobler, Olaf Bischoff, , Paul Senyol, Peter Eastman, Rikus Ferreira, Beth Diane Armstrong, Hannelie Taute and Joey Hi-Fi.

About the Book: 

The Shining Girls is a novel about a time-travelling serial killer who hunts young women full of burning potential and the fiery survivor who turns the hunt around. It’s a high concept thriller that also explores how we are haunted by history, how women’s roles and rights have changed in the 20th century and what violence does to us on an individual level and as a society.

The novel is being published in 23 countries, has earned praise from writers like Stephen King and Gillian Flynn and has had glowing reviews in The New York Times and The Guardian. It’s nominated for the Crime Writers Association’s 2013 Gold Dagger and the TV rights have been optioned by MRC and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way.

Opening night: Friday 6 September
Time: 5.30pm
Venue: Cape Town School of Photography, 4th Floor, 62 Roeland Street, Cape Town, 8001
