CMYK is an exhibition that showcases the work of an eclectic group of artistic photographers with no particular theme or through-line, other than a free license to be creative.
Speke Photographic accepted public submissions and purposefully set very loose criteria that needed to be met by all who submitted their work. Curators at the gallery have selected a total of 57 artworks from the many keenly submitted proposals.
The only set theme running through the artwork on show is that no work may be larger than 50 x 50cm framed, which allows for all artists to be on an equal creative footing and to keep the selling price of the artwork below a pre-determined threshold.
The first purpose of the show is to provide a new, dynamic platform for both established and upcoming photographers to expose their work to the greater public. The second purpose is to expose the public to some of South Africa's brightest new photographic talents and make the work accessible enough to hopefully create some new supporters and collectors.
The exhibition showed from the 6th - 22nd December at Speke Photography in Circa on Jellicoe (2 Jellicoe Ave, Rosebank). Keep your eyes open for the next one...
