The London artist known as Alexander James has opened his first exhibition in Cape Town. The artist has revealed the “Keep It In The Family” exhibition, which is taking place at THEFOURTH gallery. The exhibition includes a selection of art inspired by the city, where the artist has been living as of late.
Much of the work was inspired by his time in the city and how he has made his way around the city’s center. The collection is a visual diary that is referenced through photographs, sketches, and social encounters. The works span canvas and paper, photography, video, and performance installations showcasing Cape Town in a unique light with intimate depictions of the people.
James’ studio is located near St. Georges Mall, and the area is celebrated with a series of small portraits. Take a closer look at a few of the pieces from “Keep It In The Family” and find out more from THEFOURTH gallery right now. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more art exhibits, art news, and art releases coming soon.
