The collective TRIPE (Elrie Joubert, Liberty Battson and Pauling Gutter) is currently taking part in the International Exhibition of the 14th edition of the Biennial of Contemporary African Art in Dakar, Senegal.   

The artists combined their unique conceptual and artistic skills to transform an unconventional material – rubber and polyurethane waste from a manufacturing plant in Johannesburg, into an installation on a mass scale at the Ancient Palais de Justice.

The exhibition will run from the 19th of May to the 21st of June 2022 and can be followed on Instagram @tripe.collective and @dak_artbiennale

Lyrene Kühn-Botma is both the curator and a participating artist in the UFS group of artists at the Good Neighbours exhibition at the NIROX Sculpture Park in JHB.

Lyrene curated the University of the Free State’s Fine Arts Department component of the show and is  participating with a sculpture – which is two big Litho stone pieces.

TPG would like to wish all our student members the BEST OF LUCK with their upcoming exhibitions and assessments.
