Ogilvy to handle Trans Cape - African art exhibition

cape AfricaAdvertising giant Ogilvy Cape Town has won the Cape Africa Platform account with a brief to creatively implement a communication campaigns that will position the brand as a uniquely African experience and develop awareness of contemporary African art as something meaningful, accessible, experiential and exciting.

Cape 2006 has launched Trans Cape, South Africa's first and largest contemporary African art exhibition, which will open in Cape Town on September 23 and run for four weeks. Work from approximately 70 contemporary artists from across Africa will be showcased.

Cape Africa Platform aims to improve arts awareness in South Africa and encourage local youth to adopt art as a cool, exciting way to navigate a complicated, issue-filled world and explore their sense of African and South African identity.

Ogilvy's brief is to create a new South African audience (particularly youth and previously disadvantaged communities) who get involved in, comfortably talk about and appreciate art and culture. [07 Apr 2006 17:34]

Inspired by mega-exhibitions around the world… CAPE is not another Biennale.

It is the fulcrum of an ongoing programme of projects specifically designed to confront the problems of previous mega exhibitions and address the needs of our South African and African context.

CAPE aims to culturally connect Cape Town, South Africa, Africa and the Diaspora by creating a ground-breaking contemporary African art event - rooted in the local but global in impact.

It challenges artistic conventions and practice; crosses socio-economic and geographic divides and culturally empowers audiences by exploring the multilayered diversity and complexity of a contemporary Africa based on roots and routes: of home and belonging and exile, Diaspora, creolisation and hybridity.

CAPE offers a view of contemporary African art as integral to daily life, accessible, even playful and vital to development and transformation.

It is a call to action for cultural practitioners to respond to the unique realities of present-day Africa and redefine African cultural practice for an international and local audience.

In December 2005 The CAPE/ AFRICA Platform finally launched itself into the public eye with Sessions eKapa 2005, the first in an ongoing series of international discussions and mini-laboratories around contemporary African arts and culture.

This long-overdue meeting provided a concrete space for reflection and discussion. Diverse voices, issues, opinions and agendas converged making for a series of intense and sometimes volatile conversations. Reviewing the material it is clear that much of value was said, but that some of the most important moments were missed in the heat. I was refreshed by those who have moved ahead in the known debates, some of whom really surprised me, and restrained by those who have remained within binary and racially fraught dichotomies that seem to be more and more about power and less and less about critical thinking. We hope that further reflections will emerge from both the publications and documentary currently in production.

I was personally satisfied with the overall result but more convinced than ever of the need for ongoing discussion. CAPE cannot be the solution to many of the problems raised within the context of this forum, but we can become a catalyst and facilitator for moving forward. This is something firmly on our agenda for the future.

2006 promises to be an exciting and challenging year. I am honoured to be working with Gavin Jantjes and he has our full support in taking on this ambitious delivery in such a punitive timeframe. We plan to communicate regularly with you as to our progress and hope that you, in turn, will input and engage.
