Details of current installation at Priest.

Priest Gallerists, Wayne Matthews and Alison Shaw, are developing Priest as an experimental space for more nuanced and process oriented artistic activities.  These include public talks, performance-art projects, artistic challenges developed and promoted through social media and public and urban interventionist activities. All these and similar projects to promote the space as a more progressive artistic agency within the local arena. Priest collaborate with the Dead Bunny Society to create independent and fringe platforms for artists and joined forces with DBS at the Turbine Art Fair in 2015 and 2016.

Priest is part Art Gallery and part Production office and Edit Suite.  It is situated on the “gallery strip” on 142 Jan Smuts Ave, Rosebank, Johannesburg.
