May was big but October is BIGGER


30 & 31 October 2021  

The META foundation has instigated the largest joint open studios to ever happen in Johannesburg.

Six studio spaces, in the CDB, will be opening their doors, inviting the public to meet the artists in their studios and to view their artwork. The META foundation started this project with a soft launch in May, combining two studio spaces, namely August House and Ellis House. This iteration of the event will be even larger and will include 2 days of open studios with 6 studio spaces participating. This is the first time something of this nature has been done in Johannesburg and will allow the public to interact with almost 100 artists from different countries, cities and artists at different stages of their careers. This is a unique opportunity for the public to truly explore the visual arts and hear directly from the artists.

The event took place over 2 days, Saturday 30 October and Sunday 31 October with 3 studios being open on each day. There was a shuttle service between each space as well as activities that ran throughout the day.
