Clive van den Berg / New Work / 2008

About

Clive van den Berg has forged a distinguished career as an artist, curator, designer, lecturer and cultural activist. He is known as much for his intelligence and lively wit as he is for his extraordinary craftsmanship in painting, sculpture, printmaking and in film. Most recently he was Curator of Spier Contemporary (2007) and is currently the Curator/Designer of The Workers Museum, Newtown, Johannesburg and of several public projects in Sharpeville, Soweto and at Freedom Park, Pretoria. Van den Berg is represented in major public collections including Iziko South African National Gallery.

Visual and verbal languages with which to explore the possibilities of being other are central to Van den Berg’s work. His current exhibition departs from convention, challenges assumptions about media, expresses concerns about the state of art and of nation and explores anxieties about the fate of a ravaged planet. But Van den Berg’s strength lies, above all, in his assertions of the possibilities of being otherwise in order to make opportunities for transformation without forgetfulness.
