Infecting the City: Public Art in Cape Town

On 24 July at the Central City Partners Forum, Jay Pather presented on the Cape Town public art festival, Infecting the City.

“Public art has always been part of who we are on this continent and in this country. The interconnectedness of the African “us” has often been impeded however, throwing people apart and far away from each other, creating a physical and psychic separation. Infecting the City is a small attempt at igniting this interconnectedness through artistic expression, making public space public.”
