MOAD MUSEUM OF AFRICAN DESIGN

Only 48hrs left to help make this project happen.

Our crowd funding is drawing to a close and we need you to help make an exhibition of South Africa’s most talented photographers and illustrators a reality – to create a Johannesburg based platform to recognise and showcase these works at the level they deserve. What’s different about this exhibition? It will be held, in the dark.

In the dark?

The works of these 20 photographers and illustrators will be lit only by the light of the Little Sun – a high-quality solar-powered LED lamp developed by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen in an effort to provide clean, reliable, affordable light to the 1.1 billion people worldwide without access to electricity. This gives us the opportunity not only to create a platform for these incredibly talented artists, but also to shed a little light on others, as all the lamps that we use at the exhibition will be donated to see more than 100 children from a disadvantaged community in rural KwaZulu-Natal receive a Little Sun solar-powered lamp.

Join over a 100 other backers on the 15th of October when we will be host the exhibition at MOAD. Get yourself some art, a Little Sun, tickets to the event or just a touch of the warm and fuzzies. All you need to do is select one of the perks on the Indiegogo campaign page.
