On the 15th November, Priest Espressobar opened it’s first official exhibition, “Artists Have No Fucking Respect”.
Curated by Anthony Posner, the exhibition celebrates freedom of speech. Posner was a key figure in the protests outside the Goodman Gallery surrounding “The Spear” controversy in 2012 and feels that the South African artscape has not changed much since then. He believes that the point of art is to no respect anyone or anything, and so a concept for an art exhibition was born.
Artists include Oupa Mokena, Sheldon Makes Art and the Bogus Boys.
The exhibition is on until the end of January 2015. All the artwork is for sale.
