On 702 Hugo Fraser raved about the Walter Battiss exhibition at the Wits Art Museum. Last year Trish and I saw a very poorly curated Battiss exhibition so I was hoping Hugo Fraser’s review would not disappoint. And it didn’t. The exhibition is fantastic.
Walter Battiss wanted to be a good landscape painter when he started out and his incredible journey eventually created the most amazing and diverse art.
The exhibition is called: I invented myself.
He also invented his own alphabet and Fook Island. Awesome stuff.
There’s plenty of time to see it but please don’t miss the exhibition, on until October.
