ijusi – Design based in African Experience
INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN PUBLIC EDU PROGRAMME
“What makes me African, and what does that ‘look’ like?”
The exhibition is a curated ‘retroflective’ of Durban-based designer and publisher, Garth Walker’s ijusi magazine - an experimental, non-commercial design magazine first published by Walker in 1995 that has over the years acquired a venerated cult-like following.
The ijusi exhibition as part of KZNSA’s Social Art 2014/15 Programme, supported by the National Lotteries Distribution Trust Fund is hosting a parallel public edu programme. We look forward to your participation. All activities take place at the KZNSA Gallery, there is no cost.
Here is the line up:
Wednesday 22nd October 6pm
"An afrocentric design adventure with Garth Walker”. Open forum with light refreshments.
Friday 24th October 9am – 3.30pm

Garth Walker founded Orange Juice Design in Durban in 1995, one of South Africa’s best-known graphic design studios and one of few with an international reputation. In 2008, Walker again went solo with his new studio, Mister Walker. Walker has been widely recognised with over 100 design awards, including a Grand Prix at the Loeries, and published in at least 80 magazines and books. He is represented in the collections of Museum of Modern Art, Biblioteque Nationale de France, Victoria & Albert Museum, The Smithsonian, and numerous university and academic collections worldwide.
