Following the resounding success of the inaugural event in 2016, Solo Studios returns to the Riebeek Valley over the weekend of 11-13 August 2017.
Hosted in and around the towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West, Solo Studios is a collaboration between artists, art curators and galleries based in the area, and has been created to provide an opportunity for art collectors to visit artists in their studios to view and purchase their art. Mostly private and reclusive, the artists invite the fraternity into their personal realm for a rare intimate encounter.
A new addition to this year’s offering is the inclusion of resident authors, poets and book illustrators, all represented on one platform in a group exhibition, “The Writers’ Studio”. A highlight of this programme is the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with political commentator Max du Preez and investigative journalist Jacques Pauw.
Solo 2017 Tickets
There are four types of tickets to Solo Studios 2017, giving visitors the choice of attending for the day, or joining us for the opening and having access to all the studios for the entire weekend.
Breakfast In Conversation with
Max and Jacques
Saturday 11 August 07h30-09h00, Riebeek Valley Hotel
(Included in the Solo Studios Premier Weekend Pass only)
Political commentator Max du Preez and investigative journalist Jacques Pauw will talk about topical matters of the day, including a discussion on Jacques’ latest book (due to be released in October 2017) THE PRESIDENT’S KEEPERS: Those who keep Jacob Zuma in power and out of prison.
How is it possible that a President so corrupt, so controversial and so disliked by even those in his own ranks, has managed to stay in power in a constitutional democracy? The book explores the men and women behind Zuma that cover for him, employ dirty tricks on his behalf, finance him and keep him out of prison.
