RECONNECT a solo exhibition by Hendrik Stroebel opened on Monday evening as part of Dubai Art Week and Art Dubai a global art fair. RECONNECT and KZNSA Gallery Curator Bren Brophy is in Dubai with Hendrik. The exhibition is a partnership between the KZNSA and the Showcase Gallery in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai - situated in Dubai's lively industrial area.
A huge thank you to Showcase Gallery Director, Sharon Harvey and her team for hosting this exhibition. The opening drew the attention of the Art Dubai crowd, media coverage has been unprecedented and interest from the Dubai and international art patrons and collectors has been brisk. Hendriks painterly embroidery and ceramic work explores the history heritage and culture of the Middle East so the artwork has quite literally RECONNECT... ed with the well spring of where the artists inspiration began so many years ago. Thus for both the artist and Curator, both South Africans, we feel strangely at home. Congratulations to Hendrik Stroebel, a big shout out to the Showcase Gallery and thank you to Durbanites and the KZNSA Gallery for all your encouragement and support.
