KRONE X WHATIFTHEWORLD was established in 2018 at the Twee Jonge Gezellen wine estate in Tulbagh. Hosted in an historic building on the farm, the gallery was born from the collaborative vision of WITW and Krone. Being geographically situated outside of the bustle of the city, the gallery becomes a contemplative space for viewers to engage with art in a more intimate and immersive way. In 2019, an artist-in-residence programme was set up at the farm to offer artists a space to work while surrounded by the natural environment. 

// NOW SHOWING: 25 SEP – 28 FEB 2022 //

KRONE X WHATIFTHEWORLD is proud to present 40 under 40, a showcase of 40 artists under the age of 40.

The selected works, created largely during the pandemic, address a world which demands renewed negotiations of intimacy and sociality. The artists’ responses span painting, photography, sculpture, and installation, and reflect on the one hand, a deep care for images which bind us to history and, on the other hand, an impulse to experiment with entirely new forms of expression. The exhibiting artists share a desire to create hybrid, often poetic forms that are a testament to their ability to meet challenges with innovation and sensitivity. Placed together in conversation, these artists – some of whom are up-and-coming, while others are already well established – represent a generation determined to flip the script and manifest new ways of making and being in the world.

The exhibition will be hosted at Twee Jonge Gezellen Estate, the home of Krone, in Tulbagh from 11th September 2021 – 28th February 2022  

Visiting hours are: Monday – Saturdays from 10h00 to 16h00. Or by appointment.
