The African Arty Beats

The African Arty Bits is a weekly wrap up African arts and entertainment news exclusive to Channel Africa's current Affairs, Africa Digest on Fridays at 19:00. This segment previews and reviews African arts news, from all corners of the African Diaspora whether fine art, music, craft and film. Thuto Ngobeni, as usual, gives us African Art Headlines from all parts of the world exclusive to Channel Africa, the African Perspective.

In The Programme This Week:

  • Gert-Johan Coetzee is one of South Africa's most celebrated Designers; and for this African icon, just like for most people, 2020 is a year that he will never forget.Celebrating ten years in the industry, it's been a year of hardship, but also a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery. 

    One of the most important realisations Coetzee  has made, is the need to acknowledge where we come from; paired with the ability to shed the armour we have built, in order to become our authentic selves, and contribute to improving our world.

 

  • Having built up armour over time, in order to protect ourselves from the harsh elements of our environment, we lose sight of who we are, forgetting what is important when it comes to people and the planet.

    For Gert, the time has come to let go of the armour, embrace authenticity, vulnerability and truth, and the pieces in his Spring/Summer 2021 Collection are symbolic of this mindset and movement.
