When Tomorrow Comes comprises a range of artists’ engagements with the idea of ‘end times’ and its contraries. Globally and nationally, we are mired in catastrophism: prophets of doom – environmental, social and economic – rule the public imaginary. It is with this in mind that curators, Michael Titlestad, Jacki McInnes and Jyoti Mistry, have invited preeminent local and international artists to work through apocalypticism; to confront the orthodoxy of conclusion and to think beyond it to forms of survival, regeneration and rebirth. How, the range of artworks asks, can we represent and contend with fatalism?

Participating artists include: Jane Alexander (SA), Willem Boshoff (SA), Stephen Cohen (SA/France), Cyrus Kabiru (Kenya), Volker März (Germany), Michael MacGarry (SA), Moffat Takadiwa (Zimbabwe/SA), Marianne Halter & Mario Marchisella (Switzerland), Jacki McInnes (SA), Jyoti Mistry (SA), Mohau Modisakeng (SA), and Diane Victor (SA).

As part of the exhibition programme, Volker März will present Slave Slave - Finally Europe is Burning Again on 17.3.2016 at 12H30 at the Appolonia Theatre.
