Stellenbosch University Museum invites submissions of artworks for the Forward? Forward! Forward… exhibition that aims to reimagine higher education in South Africa.

The exhibition aims to bring together a collection of 100 artworks which re-imagines the future of Stellenbosch University and higher education in Africa. An open call is made for artists to submit proposals for artworks that engage with ideas around the future of higher education in the next 100 years (2018 – 2118). This is a forward-looking exhibition. In short, we are looking for compelling, innovative and thought-provoking works that will serve as catalysts for debate and engagement on the future of the university. The exhibition will form part of the Stellenbosch University Centenary and is to open on 5 December 2018.

Prospective participants are encouraged to submit their proposals to be considered by a selection panel. All selected works will be displayed at the University Museum for the duration of the exhibition.
