Intellectual Property Exhibition 2017 Logo

This is the fourth time the Intellectual Property Exhibition has been held.

The idea behind the exhibition, initially, was to bring local Durban artists and crafters together to showcase their work and give the buying public a "home-grown" alternative to the mass-produced items shipped into this country from abroad.

The title "Intellectual Property" was decided on because it gets to the heart of the issue that local artists and crafters face; that is, a massive retail behemoth that continually harvests from the fertile grounds of the "small-guy" artist and crafter, and then ships the idea off-shore for cheap production. So the title is intended to encourage the viewing public to think more deeply about this issue - and hopefully decide to support local artists and crafters; instead of going for the "cookie-cutter" cheapies in the large retail stores.

Artists are invited to participate; we do not prescribe what kind of work they submit - our only requirement is that it is unique and falls broadly into the category of "gallery" work. This, we hope, results in an eclectic collection of high-end art and craft that show-cases Durban's and KZN's talent to the public.

This year the exhibition is an exciting mix of jewelery, painting, decor, craft, furniture, collaborative projects, fashion, music and performance - a bumper crop of unique, creative and contemporary work.
