Soccer Kultcha 11 June – 10 July

Soccer Kultcha is an exhibition curated by Paul Weinberg, Warren Nelson and Leanne Barling in collaboration with Michaelis Art Gallery. Soccer Kultcha explores the footballers and their followers beyond the main stadiums. They play on any field they can find, sometimes with home-made balls or goals. This exhibition is about this vibrant soccer culture. Far from official photographs, grand stadiums and headline grabbing photojournalism, the photographs of Soccer Kultcha invite us to rediscover the game of football, and the lives and passions of ordinary people who play and celebrate the game. www.michaelis.uct.ac.za/

Evita se Perron: Soccerfree Zone June and July 2010

Soccer fever is upon us. They say there is no choice. Everything is geared to the game, like it or not. Balls will be kicked throughout the land. Wherever you go, you will be booted onto the team, vuvuzela in hand. And at a price. Evita se Perron in Darling will be the exception. The Most Famous White Woman in South Africa has declared her cabaret restaurant at the old railway station a SOCCERfree ZONE. “For every husband and son who will want to watch soccer, there will be a wife and a daughter who might not want it as badly,” says Mrs Bezuidenhout. “So let them come to Darling and share time, good food and laughter with me”. http://capetowncreatives.co.za/blog

To celebrate both, the African Arts Institute will bring stand-up comedians from around the African continent to Cape Town for their irreverent and humorous takes on Africa, independence and football! http://www.baxter.co.za
