David Krut Projects
About This Show
Show Info: ART | ARTISTS | BOOKS | POETRY David Krut Projects is an alternative arts institution dedicated to encouraging an awareness of and careers in the arts and related literature and media, and to promoting contemporary culture in a dynamic, collaborative environment. In Johannesburg, we have exhibition project spaces and an adjacent bookstore located at 151 Jan Smuts Avenue; Arts on Main, the major arts hub adjacent to downtown Johannesburg; and the Montebello Design Centre in Newlands, Cape Town. David Krut Print Workshop (DKW), based at Arts on Main, produces fine art editions with William Kentridge, Diane Victor, Deborah Bell and a number of other South African and international artists. David Krut’s art activities started in London in the early 1980’s when he published an edition by British artist Joe Tilson. He has since curated exhibitions of contemporary works on paper in various international locations. In 1992 he became active in South Africa, publishing the editions of William Kentridge. In 2002 he established David Krut Print Workshop, a collaborative intaglio and monotype studio, in Johannesburg. In New York, print collaborations are undertaken with Director and Master Printer Phil Sanders of Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. David Krut Publishing was established in 1997 when Krut produced the first major publication on William Kentridge in CD-ROM format. Since then he has published many art books, including a series of 15 TAXI Art Books, the first-ever series of monographs on contemporary South African artists. DKP‘s Podcasts is a series of episodes from our various artists about their practice and processes, along with gallery and DKW walkabouts and talks.
